From rainbow-hued desserts to pillowy soft Castella cakes and the recent resurgence of cheese tarts (thanks to the arrival of Japanese brand Pablo Cheese Tart here), 2017 has seen a number of food trends come and go. As we wait in eager anticipation for the next big thing to hit the local gastronomic scene, we’ve turned our attention to a classic dessert that’ll always remain in vogue: Cheesecake.
Typically made with cream cheese, ricotta or tofu, cheesecake has been favoured the world over for its fluffy texture and rich flavour. It can be prepared baked or unbaked (where the cake isn’t put in an oven, and is simply left to set in the refrigerator before being ready for consumption), and with bases ranging from digestive biscuits to crushed graham crackers and Oreo cookies. There are different variations of it too, the more common ones being the New York cheesecake (which is incorporated with heavy cream and cream cheese, and has a dense consistency) and Japanese-style cheesecake — which is softer and carries a lighter flavour. These may come topped with everything from fruits to chocolate and caramel.
If, like us, you can’t get enough of this classic dessert, here’s a guide to the best cheesecake spots in Singapore to visit.
