Home-baked Cheesecake Challenge: Flavour# 20 Physalis Pineapple Cheesecake

It’s been more than a month since I started the challenge of home baking cheesecake, and this is my 20th flavour. Yes! (two thumbs up) the 20th , running out of idea? Nope still excited every time. What about pineapple? I was searching for fresh sweet pineapple (as if I really know how to choose) lol! I saw this little tiny basket and wonder hmm what kind of fruit is this?

Physalis is like a small tomato, it has a sweet and sour taste, so I thought it will be a good combination with pineapple and I was right! this flavour # 20 Physalis pineapple Cheesecake is to die for…meaning I have to double my work out at the gym to compensate for having two slices of this delicious combination. ๐Ÿ™‚
