While some people are experimenting with cheesecake by adding exotic flavors like black sesame, this Australian dessert really takes the cake. The Vegemite cheesecake recipe takes a traditional cheesecake and tops it with a taste bud-polarizing spread.

Billy Law at the blog A Table For Two created the dish. Similar to the more traditional combination of salted caramel, the "salt brings out the sweetness in food, and this works in the same way: the salty Vegemite enhances the sweetness of the cheesecake."

You can experiment a lot with this Australian dessert, from mini cheesecakes to a full size or more conventional toppings. Billy suggests Vegemite-infused chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries to really intensify the flavor.
