Looks good, doesn’t it? That’s a chocolate swirl cheesecake, first one I ever made. Made it last night. Even had to buy a springform pan just to make it. Erika and I are still somewhat on the Atkins Diet, so I made a sugar-free cheesecake with one of their recipes. This particular recipe looked extremely easy, so I printed it by clicking the Print This icon on their site and started cooking. The print-friendly page seemed to have a few bugs in it, like error messages, but I figured they wouldn’t affect anything.
Boy, did it ever.
Halfway through making it, I realized some of the ingredients were missing on the printed ingredient list. I didn’t think to check the web site to see if the printout came out wrong (which it had). The most serious problem was that it didn’t specify the quantity of sugar substitute, so we had to guess. What a disaster. As pretty as this picture might look, the cheesecake tastes awful. Horrid. I had a few bites and promptly shelved it in the fridge. I’m going to throw it out this morning, and Erika says she’ll find a better recipe and make it.
