A colleague sent around an email late yesterday afternoon to say that our company was having a bake sale today to raise money for our colleagues in NY who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. This gave me the perfect opportunity to make one of my most favourite childhood food memories a reality again… My mama grew up in New Zealand and one of her dearest childhood friends, Janet, shared this Pineapple Cheesecake recipe with her. Mama used to make this recipe for us growing up and I can (without a single doubt) say that this is one of my favourite cakes of all time. The texture of the pineapple and the bite of the lemon come together like a seductive tango on the tongue which will leave you with a grin that will last for some time.. It is one of those cakes that is so good, you don’t want to share it with the fear of having none for later, but yet want everyone to experience the delicious taste you have dancing around in your mouth… do yourself a favour and give this a go! 🙂
