I used a canned guava to top the cheesecake, I didn’t like the taste at all, I think fresh guava puree is better in taste.

Home-baked Cheesecake Challenge : Flavour no.11 Double C Cheesecake

Does it sounds like double cheese burger? 🙂 I named my Flavour # 11 Double C Cheesecake because, I made a Coconut macaroons tart then I scooped a baked cheesecake  and use dark chocolate as toppings. Coconut and chocolate make a double “C”. 😉
