Cherry Vanilla Chocolate Cheesecake

Cherry season is almost finished so I prepared the last cherry recipe for this year. Specifically, it is Cherry Vanilla Chocolate Cheesecake. Although this triple combination may seem like too much, it is not true at all. Vanilla because it is traditional, regular and basic cheesecake, only with the addition of fresh cherries in the cheesecake. It is made with butter biscuit and cocoa crust and it is topped with dark chocolate ganache, therefore chocolate. This cheesecake is creamy and juicy at the same time, it is why I´ve been doing it for a couple years now, only with minor adjustments. But you need to keep in mind the length of baking, because if you bake it for too long, the edges may rise, the center may go down and generally it would be less juicy. With the cherry addition, it is perfect for this summer period and cherries match the vanilla cheesecake taste and the chocolate sweetness at the same time. However, make sure that ganache is really firm, I didn´t wait long enough, I took pictures of the cheesecake after only two hours and you can see the result – ganache wasn´t firm enough. Anyway, it is a summer cheesecake that is worth a try.
