Unexpected Appetizer Confections
This Blue Cheese Cake is Best Paired With Crackers as a Starter

By: Michael Hemsworth (Superstar) Jan 22, 13

Confections are traditionally left for the end of the meal to end on a sweet note, but this blue cheese cake recipe is best enjoyed before the main course. Although the creation is technically a cake, the recipe is best paired with crackers and fruit as a savoury way to start off a multi-course meal.

Instead of using standard cream cheese, this cake replaces the creamy substance with a more salty and tart blue variety that will have guests wondering if you’ve served dessert a little prematurely. This recipe is perfect for taking an unexpected turn when it comes to traditional hors d’oeuvres and is even great as an offering for guests that drop by with a bottle of wine on a day off.
