Coffee Cheesecake with Pecan Sauce (recipe too!)

Week 23, recipe 20 ~ Coffee Cheesecake with Pecan Sauce found on page 79

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!

The brown sugar taste came through...the texture of the cheesecake was delicate, and I enjoyed the crunchy pecans in the caramel sauce! ~Hannah

I'm not a coffee fan, but it was good. (I'd drink coffee if it tasted like this) -Daniel =)

Oh my gosh, praline or caramel I would love it! I am a caramel lover. Although I don't drink coffee, I do like the flavor of it in some things. I think this sounds delicious! Just gotta ask, is that your sweet kitchen? Love it!!
