“Fragrant Vanilla Cake” Guest Post

I recently discovered a wonderful blog full of wonderful cakes and more……….Fragrant Vanilla Cake has quickly become a favorite and luckily for me and my readers, it’s creator, Amy, has agreed to share some thoughts and some beautiful pics of her

Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Cheesecake.

Could there be any better combination of flavors?  Thanks for sharing Amy! 

We’ll be watching for each new beautiful creation you make at Fragrant Vanilla Cake.

More now from Amy herself:

Hello, nice to meet you all!  My name is Amy, and I have a blog called “Fragrant Vanilla Cake”, mostly baking and dessert recipes, but the occasional special vegetarian savory recipe pops up as well.  I am a competitive long distance runner who also works in a deli at a health food store as a cook.  I also have a degree in studio Art from Bethel University, but fell in love with the art of cooking and baking after college so I have decided to use my creativity in that respect more than just simply painting and drawing.  After all, to me creating recipes is art.  I have been a vegetarian for 8 years, but just began to lean more towards the vegan way of eating in the last few years.  I am not a strict vegan, but I eat that way whenever possible. I was flattered when Angela asked me to guest post on her blog! 


I chose one of my favorite recipes, Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Cheesecake, because it is so decadent and delicious I had a feeling you would love it too! I wanted there to be plenty of peanut flavor so I made the crust from peanuts, and it was simple and delicious. Just peanuts, dates and sea salt.  I could have just snacked on it, but then I would have no crust!  For the filling, I added cashews for smoothness, peanuts and peanut butter for flavor blended with coconut oil, agave nectar and vanilla.  I threw in a few small bananas, as they were to be an important flavor component!


I blended cocoa powder into half the filling, to create a marbled cheesecake.  I suppose I could have made the whole thing chocolate but I wanted to taste the banana and peanut butter as well!  But the peanut butter in the base wasn’t enough for me…I love the stuff, and I wanted it to be very present so I made a peanut butter swirl in the cake as well! 


It was amazing!  Decadent, creamy, smooth peanut buttery goodness with a hint of banana and rich dark chocolate!  I sat and watched the rain as I enjoyed every last morsel of that piece of cheesecake…it was peaceful, and I didn’t mind that the sun did not decide to show its face.
