My famously delicious birthday cake is that big purple round thing with the gaudy "20" on it… what can I say, I’m a kid at heart! The purple was my choice too… I joked that I used Barney guts for the frosting (note: no giant purple dinosaurs were harmed in the making of this cake!).

Crack Pie

…alternately, “I see a diabetic coma in your near future.”

Last of the Thanksgiving desserts I baked (or, at least the last one I’ll be posting–I also made a batch of these per my wife’s request). This is a recipe I’ve heard so much about I just had to try: the “Crack Pie” from Momofuku Milk Bar. I bought myself the cookbook, but the recipe is easily found online.

This is a variation on a chess pie, a family of pies that includes pecan pie, and a tooth-achingly sweet one at that. It uses a crust of oatmeal cookie crumbs, sugar, and butter, with a filling made of sugar, cream, egg yolk, and butter. It was tasty, gooey, and very, very rich, but being that I prefer less-sweet versions of pecan pie, this wasn’t exactly my, er, sweet spot. (Not that I’d turn away a slice.)

It’s not exactly the most photogenic thing, especially before it’s been cut. I took the remaining portion and shot it, backlit by a window, and with a white bounce card to keep the foreground from being overcome by shadow.

Chocolate cake mix, using Pepsi Max instead of the other ingredients required on the box (i.e., no butter, no eggs).

It didn’t rise a whole lot during baking, but it tastes just fine.

Buttercreme chocolate frosting, o’course.

Getting old is no fun; you have to be on a diet ALL THE TIME just to maintain your weight; losing weight requires fasting… which I guess I’ll be doing anyway during Lent.

This is my contribution to the flickrBINGO group; this week’s challenge is negative space. There is lots of negative space on my plate these days…..

We have a sunny bright morning, so this is natural light thru the kitchen window.

And it’s low-carb and sugar free and yummy! I sprinkled cinnamon on the top. September 29, 2006

Recipe is here.

In this, my first try, I put the chocolate chips into the mix and it made the cheesecake fall apart. Just sprinkle them on top and it comes out great, like this example.

October 20, 2006 – This is my second attempt at the sugar free chocolate cheesecake. First attempt is here. This time I only put the chocolate chips on top instead of in the mix and that did the trick (the original recipe didn’t call for chips at all); it didn’t fall apart like last time. I sprinkled tons of unsweetened cinnamon on top and it tasted GREAT! I use low-fat cream cheese to cut back on calories so this is also South Beach friendly.
