Pop Century Tie-Dye Cheesecake Recipe


One of the things the resort we will be staying at features is the famous Tie-Dye Cheesecake.  The ONLY place you can find it at WDW is at the Pop Century resort.

Doesn't it just look fun!? 

The "crust" is made of red velvet cake!  The cheesecake part is just like any other cheesecake, except you color it with food color.

Enjoy!


Crust (red velvet cake)*:
1/4 c butter, softened
3/4 c sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 ounce red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 c buttermilk
1 c flour
1/2 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9″ spring-form pan.
Cream together butter, sugar & eggs. Make a paste of cocoa and food coloring. Add the paste to the creamed mixture. Mix salt & vanilla in buttermilk & add alternately with the flour. Mix soda & vinegar separately, add last, folding in. Do not beat after adding soda mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool cake in pan.
Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
*You can also use a Red Velvet cake mix (think Duncan Hines)

Cheesecake Filling:
1 1/2 lb. Cream Cheese
1 1/3 c Sugar
5 Large Eggs
16 oz. Sour Cream
1/4 c Flour
2 teaspoon Vanilla
2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
NOTE: All above ingredients should be at room temperature before you begin.
Preparation:
Start by beating the cream cheese until light & fluffy. Keep mixer on a low setting throughout beating and mixing process. Add the sugar a little at a time & continue beating until creamy. Add one egg at a time and beat after each egg. When eggs have been mixed into the cream cheese add flour, vanilla and lemon juice, mix well. Add the sour cream last & beat well.

Divide the batter into 6 bowls and color each one:
Red, Purple, Yellow, Light Blue, Green, Orange

To assemble, drop large spoonfuls of the colored batters randomly on top of the red velvet cake still in the pan. Swirl each layer slightly. Place on the top rack in the middle of a 325 degree preheated oven for one hour and 15 minutes. When time is up, prop open oven door and leave the pan in the oven for one hour. After one hour, remove from oven. Let cool enough before the cheesecake is put into the refrigerator for 24 hours.

Once I get my kitchen back to normal I plan on making this.  I will let you know how it turns out!
Have you had the TDCC at POP or made it yourself?

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
