We usually hear of Queso de Bola during Christmas. I, however, with so many bloggers in my Facebook timeline, have been hearing about Queso de Bola Cheesecake. Yes, a cheesecake made of Queso de Bola!
I was curious but didn’t know where to get one. As I read more and more bloggers (especially the food club) rave about the queso de bola cheesecake, I found out that it’s actually a creation of Irene. Irene is the wife of Richard, owner of Tales from the Tummy blog. Apparently, Irene bakes!
I was ecstatic when Richard brought a 4.5-inch solo-size queso de bola cheesecake for me to try out. Just by the looks of it, I already felt that the cake must taste good.
Since I got the Queso de Bola cheesecake at night time, I put it on the refrigerator for me to bring to work the next day. You see, I always get hungry especially when I’m at work. I was truly excited that day as I can finally try out what everyone was raving for!
I invited a colleague of mine to try out Irene’s Queso de Bola Cheesecake with me. We got our forks out and used it to enjoy the very cheesy cheesecake.
I must say after I finished half the mini cheesecake, I was completely satisfied. The bloggers were right! The Queso de Bola Cheesecake is really delicious! No wonder Irene finally made it into a business and she called it Indulgence by Irene. Her first product? No other than the fast-rising Queso de Bola Cheesecake.
I appreciate that Indulgence by Irene created such high-quality cake. Imagine a cheesecake that you can truly say CHEESE! If you love cheese (especially if you love edam cheese), then this is for you. There weren’t any fillers at all. You know that every bite of the cake has pure goodness of edam cheese. A type of cheese that most people prefer!
After finishing the cheesecake, both me and my colleague were too full! hahaha! Actually, I had a very light dinner as our merienda was full of honest to goodness queso de bola yumminess! Just a few bites of Irene’s Queso de Bola can make your stomach satisfied and full. I’m definitely a happy camper and I’m just glad that my first try of a Queso de Bola Cheesecake was the one created from Indulgence by Irene.
Irene’s Queso de Bola Cheesecake comes in 2 sizes. The 4.5-inch one which I reviewed in this post costs about Php200 while a family-size one which is 9-inch costs Php 900.
I wonder what the next product of Indulgence by Irene is… I’m looking forward to it. For now, I know that Irene is busy baking her Queso de Bola Cheesecakes as orders kept coming in. Congratulations Irene and Richard! 🙂
