I believe that this was the easiest cake I've made to date, and I assure you that it was THE BEST. Happy Sigh. I'm not sure if you would call the Pecan Sauce a caramel sauce or a praline sauce, but it was so good!
|A Cheesecake like this would certainly have come from a kitchen like this!|
~I used homemade Dark Brown Sugar instead of the "light brown sugar" that the recipe called for, so in the cheesecake, I used 1/4 white sugar & 3/4 dark brown sugar- it was perfect!
~The recipe called for 2 Tablespoons of "very strong brewed coffee", so I used 2 teaspoons Decaf Instant coffee and 2 Tablespoons hot water...this amount was perfect too. =)
~Mara Hubbard's Organic Pecans went in the sauce.
~The sauce also called for "light brown sugar", and I used all dark- no white!
