Confused by the laws and customs of Shavuot? We’ve got you covered:
A few years ago, I decided to try and wow my in-laws by baking a step-intensive, outrageously decadent cheesecake. It was a white and milk-chocolate “bullseye” design that required a laborious process of measuring and pouring the mixtures just so to create perfectly symmetrical concentric circles, alternating brown and white batters. However, the end result was just short of a disaster: The circles weren’t symmetrical, instead they were more like bulbous squiggles resembling paint splatters. The white-chocolate layer ran out before I could finish the final center circle. The batter kept splattering, white chocolate mixing with the milk chocolate, the edges of each color bleeding and sloshing into one another. After baking, the cheesecake looked like a sad, hot mess, its center caving in and the edges sticking to the sides.
This sublime cake is smothered in fruit and half-melted cinnamon sugar, making it melt-in-your-mouth creamy and not too sweet.
The addition of fruit and yogurt make this Shavuot cake as nutritious as it is delicious.
Shavuot is all about cheesecake, and these decadent images from Instagram take the cake.
