Cheesecake is one of my all time favorite desserts. Vanilla is one of the classic flavors, and nothing combines better with vanilla than chocolate and berries. So to this cake I decided to add ganache on top and make it on a base of cranberries that give it a beautiful color and a delicious fruity touch.
For this cake you only need 9 ingredients, yes, only 9 !!! Super simple, ready to cool down in just 15 minutes and enjoy for the coffee time.
This main ingredient is tofu, which is super practical to make creamy, delicious and healthy cakes full of protein. With a naturally sweetened crust. And the ganache contrasts perfectly with the other two layers of flavors.
Do you dare to try the recipe? You will not regret! If the tests tell me, send me an email or comment in the blog post how it came out, if you liked it, or that you would change it, I would love to listen to the advice of those who try my recipes! And if you share a photo on your Instagram or stories tag me like @gaspic_healthyberry so I can see it and I’ll share you in my stories!
