  • 4 oz white chocolate chopped
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. heavy cream
  • pinch of salt
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9-in springform pan and set aside.
  2. Using a double broiler or in 30-second increments in the microwave, melt the white chocolate.
  3. In mixer, combine cream cheese and sugar until light and smooth.
  4. Add in flour, salt, and vanilla.
  5. One at a time, add in the room temperature eggs.
  6. Add in the heavy cream and beat on medium until creamy.
  7. Remove mixer bowl from stand and pour in the melted white chocolate. Fold in by hand.
  8. Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until center is set. Remove from oven.
  9. Allow cheesecake to cool completely before removing from pan. I placed my cheesecake in the fridge until I was ready to assemble the cake.

  10. You can use whatever crust you prefer for cheesecake, I used a premade Oreo crust I purchased at the store. I simply pressed the crust into the bottom of the pan and poured the cheesecake mixture over the top

I am completely incapable of honoring any diet resolution, so instead sharing with you one of the most ridiculous, over the top, insane cakes I have ever thought up much less made.

I wasn’t planning on sharing it because its so crazy.   Its got roughly 3,456 calories per slice.  In addition to the obnoxious sweetness, it was the most expensive cake I have ever made for fun, rolling in at roughly $30.  For a cake.  For one cake.  One little cake.

But, based on some blogging stories of late, I am going to share it anyway.  My blogging motto for 2013 is “Be Me”.

And more times than not *I* am totally ridiculous and over the top and obnoxious.

*shame spiral*

Lets still be friends.  I promise to behave in public.  Most of the time.

I used Ree’s Milky Way Cake recipe and prepared it in a 9-inch cake pan.  There was a little batter left over so I threw that in another 9-inch pan and had a little snack.  (If you choose to do the same, just keep an eye on it during baking, as it will cook faster with less batter.)  That was the top layer.

I also used her Milky Way frosting to cover the cake, although my cake was very chilled when I added it.

The bottom layer is a deeply rich Chocolate Cake.  In place of one of the cups of hot water, I used 1 cup of fresh brewed coffee.  That was the bottom layer and the White Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust is in the middle.

I also covered the cake in a buttercream crumb coat before chilling it overnight.  The link goes to my Neapolitan Rose Cake, which is covered in 47 pounds the most wonderfully luscious and satisfying basic buttercream.

See, look at that.  I cant stop.

Must. Remember. To. Be. Healthier.

    I have been on a “diet” for about 4 months, with a successful loss of 21 lbs. I indulge when i need (or want) to! I just don’t get carried away. This cake will be my next sinful escapade! I love to cook and, especially, bake. Thankfully, I love to share my creations. I never have too much of a good thing left lying around the house to ruin my dietary efforts. Thanks for sharing your creation!!! I am so glad I finally found this page!!!!

  • Tonia says:

    Oh my! That looks amazing! The whole New Year’s diet thing isn’t going so well for me either. Plus, when you are a blogger, it’s the sugary and high calorie foods that people want to see. I am getting better at giving it away or even {gasp} throwing stuff away.

    How do you layer each part of the cake?

  • Courtney says:

    Just curious about substituting white chocolate for something for someone who is not a big fan of white chocolate….
    Or does that completely ruin the cake?
    Thinking about either just a plain cheesecake? Caramel cheesecake? Chocolate cheesecake?
    Any ideas or has anyone ever tried this before?
