Just in time for the holidays is this decadent homemade cheesecake recipe that features a filling made from the popular winter beverage, eggnog. The spiced vanilla drink adds aromatic and seasonal flavors to the rich torte that is ideal to serve at dinners, parties and soirees.
The recipe is a fusion dish that combines poundcake and cheesecake into one opulent dessert. The poundcake is flavored with eggnog to give the batter a creamy, spiced and aromatic flavor that is still light, airy and spongey in texture. To contrast the poundcake cheesecake is added in the centre as a denser, richer and creamier filling than custard or icing. The cheesecake carries the same egg nog flavors of the pound cake enhanced with the addition of sugar, spiced nutmeg and cream cheese.
