Cheesecake - SunCakeMomHuman nature is full of limitless desires that can’t be stopped with simple reasoning once they are turned on. Unfortunately, it’s something to do with scarce resources in the wilderness while evolving in the past couple of thousands years so we can’t really do anything about right now, except avoiding the cues that trigger our responses.

These psychological traits are well known by many in the gambling industry and casinos are built to exploit such weaknesses. Similar tactics are used by social media companies to keep us engaged in the loop of never-ending notification dots, no matter the cost.

Most of them known all too well, once we are hooked on something and make it part of our daily life, we’ll have a hard time letting it go, even if we destroy ourselves in the process.

Sometimes things can go awry and turn out to be completely different than intended though. A shining example is the recent raise of capsule coffee that even its inventor admitted, he hadn’t thought of being something so successful and wouldn’t have done it if he had known what’s going to be a massive waste of resources, delivering a rather average product.

Of course, once a thing catches on, no manufacturer will bar themselves from selling as many products as possible for the greater good alone but rather tries to find creative ways to sell more and more.

When cream cheese was first invented in the 19th century, its inventor only wanted to make cheaper Neufchâtel cheese, not overfill a nation with calories, one slice of cake at the time.

Classic blueberry cheesecakes are cakes made out of creme cheese on crackers crust and blueberry topping. Let’s not get dive too deep in the classification rabbit hole but cheesecakes aren’t really considered cakes at all. Since there isn’t a clear consensus about cheesecakes being tarts, custard pies or flans, we shouldn’t really bother calling them anything else just yet.

Blueberry cheesecake doesn’t tend to diverge from the classic “cheesecake with something on top” recipe, but there are some who try to ride on great blue waves by mixing the blueberries with the crème cheese, providing flavor and color right into the body of the cake.

Creating cheesecakes this way may have the advantage of added flavor to the cake, which could be a positive trait if we are really into blueberries, but it would also mean that the berries completely overpower the cake, leaving very little room for the topping to shine through, let alone excite.

Since cheesecakes can be baked or bake-less, we have some leeway adjusting the recipe, not just to our taste but our schedule too. Although both types need a considerable amount of cooling, the baked variety is famously picky with sudden temperature changes and requires long and unbothered cooling time in the oven.

No bake cheesecakes, on the other hand, are not just quick to make, but require no extra fuss or care, just a couple of hours in the fridge until all is set and done.

That’s being said, there isn’t one cheesecake that’s better than the other, only our mood that at times can lean closer to one type of cake while preferring the others next time.

Either way, the topping is just plain blueberries, cooked to jamfection. We don’t really need anything else to prepare it, except some sweetener if we haven’t quit sugar yet and feel like life is blunt without added artificial sweetness.

But when we are rolling down the slope of calorie overfilled desserts, that provides enough energy on its own for half a day, saving a couple of hundred calories in unnecessary sweetness could mean the life or death of the second slice, and nothing beats a second serving.Cheesecake - SunCakeMom
