Adventures in Writing, Reading & Book Culture

At the Cake Factory

The Cake Factory, otherwise known as Asia’s Kitchen … is where she has made a traditional Polish cheesecake. It’s a bit different to what Americans are accustomed, lighter and more moist. Although you wouldn’t know it by the ingredients list: 1 kilo cream cheese, 3 cups of sugar, 1/2 lb of butter, 8 eggs.

This cake is Asia’s “practice cake” as she’ll star the cheesecake at our Sept wedding celebration (yeah!). We used a newly-bought cake pan, this one twice as deep as our cookie pan. The cake turned out perfectly, quite moist and oh so cream-cheeseeee.

While baking, the true cheesecake maven waits patiently for her creation to come alive.

We started out with a piece eaten in the traditional style (I had chocolate milk on the side)

And then, later, I added fresh strawberries and a drizzling of honey (“No, no … we don’t do that in Poland,” I was told. But then I gave Asia a bite with the strawberries, and guess what? Yes, you got that right, brother!)

Przy okazji … panie Władku, czy jest pan głodny?
