Which is the all-time best cake? If you ask my 17-year-old son, it’s clearly the cheesecake brownie made by Whole Foods in New York City. Logically a combination of cheesecake and brownie with a subtle proportion of jelly, it’s just right for his taste. The mix of textures is also decisive.
This delicious treat is firm, fluffy and fluid, and has triggered such enthusiasm that, on a brief visit to New York, my husband packed a brownie in a Tupperware box and carried it with him across the “Pond” and back to Hamburg for his sake.
