National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to this wonderful dessert. It is celebrated on March 6.
First, let’s get to the bottom of what cheesecake is. The dessert is made with cream cheese or cottage cheese base, eggs and sugar are added. The cake is created from crumbled cookies, muffins or baked (biscuit). There are two ways to make cheesecake: baking it in the oven or freezing it (the result should be a moderately firm dessert that feels good to cut).
The emergence of chocolate is associated with the Aztec and Mayan tribes. It was originally in liquid form: the Indians simply crumbled the cocoa beans and heated them in water. The result was a hot drink with a bright chocolate flavor. European explorers brought chocolate to Europe. It should be noted that the usual bar of chocolate became available only in 1842.
White chocolate did not begin to be produced by Nestle until the 1930s. It was loved for its delicate flavor, and the product became in demand in cooking. It was around this time that the first cheesecakes began to be made. The first course was presented at Lindy’s Restaurant. The real peak of popularity came in the 1960s, which has not gone away even today. Dessert lovers decided to commemorate the dessert and created National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day.
- Normal (dark) chocolate is made from cocoa powder. The processing of cocoa beans also produces oil. It is the basis for making white chocolate (has a white color).
- The biggest cheesecake was made in Stavropol. The event took place in 2017 on City Day. Its weight exceeded 4 tons! The dessert made it into the Guinness Book of World Records.
- Cottage cheese is the main ingredient in cheesecake. Without it, the dessert can’t be called that.
