Sopapilla Cheesecake – Travel Animal Doctor

My Aunt Jan gave me the sopapilla cheesecake recipe that is absolutely to die for. – Travel Animal Doctor

Have you ever had sopapilla ice cream from a Mexican restaurant?

This cheesecake reminds me of that type of ice cream, except it is not as cold on the inside, and it is creamier.

It is hard to describe this recipe other than to say it is one of the most delicious dishes of dessert I have ever prepared. This gourmet dessert serves up to 12 people, but it sits well in the refrigerator and can be made for a group as little as 2.

Since it is 12 servings, it did take us about a week to eat it all up. While it would be a pretty unhealthy breakfast, I could also see spoiling myself one morning with a small serving.

Served with a few cherries or strawberries on the side, it could be a little bit healthier to eat for breakfast.

My Review

I have never tasted a dessert quite like this delicious sopapilla cheesecake. I like this recipe because it is simple to prepare and there are not many ingredients.  This will satisfy any sweet tooth. The luxuriously smooth flavor and fluffy exterior makes this sopapilla cheesecake recipe a rich treat for your friends and family. It is so rich, that only a small piece is necessary to satisfy your taste buds. This recipe can be served warm or cold. It tasted just as good after it was refrigerated.

Possible Alterations

For a healthier version of this sopapilla cheesecake, I can see the benefit of replacing the sugar with coconut sugar. There are vegan alternatives of butter that are also normally much healthier. Instead of PAM, there are no-stick alternatives that are made of coconut oil and avocado oil.
