Mini Saffron Cheesecake

Mini saffron cheesecake - Indian sweet

For the longest time, I remember thinking Cheesecake was the dessert of rich people. Haha now that I think of it, it seems so funny. Maybe I thought of it like that because it’s a foreign dessert and always costs higher than any other desserts. The rich taste of it makes me feel like saying ‘Your highness!’. Anyway, I finally got a chance to try it and what can I say? It was worth all the wait and words failed me in describing the scrumptious taste of it.

Cheesecake is one dessert that took me so long to learn. I’ve failed multiple times to get that Cheesecake perfection that I have today. The recipe always seemed simple but no, it was not an easy process. Now that I got a hang of Cheesecake, I thought why not make my own version of it? Cheesecake with saffron sounded delicious in my head and I immediately put into action and made this delicious Mini Saffron Cheesecake. It turned out great to my surprise.

Have you noticed that most of the Indian sweets have saffron in it? Yes, when I was thinking of how I could make this Cheesecake the Indian version, the first thing that came to my mind was saffron. A lot of elders at home usually prefer Indian sweets rather than any other foreign dessert recipes, and this is a perfect recipe for them. So, try this Mini Saffron Cheesecake at home and spread love through your dessert. Happy baking!
