Hello guys!

It’s been a crazy time! I had so much work and assignments, that didn’t really have time to bake. It took me 86 hours of no sleeping to finish my first Unity 3D ‘game’, that I was working on for my Computational Portraiture Class.

I’d be more than happy if you’d like take a glance and play! The link to the game is HERE If you’re interested of how I was doing it, what was the purpose and the goal of this project, you can read about it on my school blog : ITP MARCELA. Please let me know if you like it, if you see any bugs there, what would you like me to change!

And the cheesecake is just delicious! Best Peach Cheesecake I’ve ever tried. Soft, not to sweet, refreshing. With gorgeous meringue layer, topped with crumble. My friends fell in love with it!

  2. Add cream cheese, eggs and cornstarch, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Set aside

meringue:

  1. Beat egg whites on medium-high until soft peaks form (ends of peaks will curl when the beaters are lifted out).

    I love this kind of cake, but never made it with cream cheese, we normally use quark in Germany. It is pinned and I will make it as soon as possible.

    Marcela czarujesz tym sernikiem! 🙂

  5. cheri says:

    Hi marcela, what a masterpiece you created, so beautiful.

  6. How on earth did you manage to stay up for 86 hours? I would be like a zombie after a day!

  7. I can see why your friends fell in love with this cake, Marcela…it looks delicious! That crumb topping. I think I could eat it by itself…it looks perfect! And that ‘game’ you created is insane. I am amazed that you created it! I’m a big gamer myself, and I could totally see this being the setting for one of my games. Love it!

  8. Yummy, it looks delicious and I’m totally checking out your game. Well done, sweetie. xo

  9. Streusel is always great! The cake looks super, Marcela.

    Sernik-marzenie, a Święta tuż tuż…
    Kompletnie jesteśmy z Młodym zieloni jeżeli chodzi o grafikę komputerową. Mogę powiedzieć tylko jedno-Wojtek stwierdził to jest piękne! I moje nie wykształcone oko to potwierdza:)

  11. Liz says:

    You’ve been busy!!! But I’m glad you took the time to make this glorious peach cheesecake! It looks divine!!!

  12. Katerina says:

    What a delicious, fruity cake! The meringue touch was ingenious!

  13. Please don’t think me unkind Marcela but I’m a little confused with your recipe. I believe the meringue was made with egg whites but yolks are listed in the ingredients. I bet it is because of all those long hours you have put into your project.

      Karen, You’re totally right! I was so tired that wrote ‘yolks’ instead of ‘whites’… shame on me … Thank you so much for letting me know!

  17. Meringue topping is insane!!! The cake looks great. You are so creative.

  18. I haven’t had this type of cak in forever. The addition of peaches is a really nice touch.

  19. Uwielbiam sernik z brzoskwiniami… Choć przyznam, że nabrałaś mnie tymi mandarynkami trochę i przez chwilę myślałam, że dorzuciłaś mandarynki 🙂

  20. Beth says:

    This sounds amazing – the meringue layer sounds positively divine!

  21. Sosna says:

    To brzoskwiniowy czy mandarynkowy? 😀

  22. Łukasz says:

    Wygląda bardzo smakowicie! 🙂

  23. Louise says:

    Busy, busy, busy, Marcela:)

    Your Peach Cheesecake looks so inviting and refreshing. I can’t wait until Peach Month which is celebrated during peach season here in the states in August. Pinning:)

    Thanks for sharing, Marcela…hope you will be able to get some rest:)

  24. wygląda przepysznie. zjadłam oczami. pozdrawiam serdecznie!

  25. żadnemu sernikowi jeszcze nie odmówiłam, i takiemu również bym tego nie zrobiła 🙂

  26. I love crumble toppings, and I love cheesecake, and I’ve never put the two together! What a delicious-looking cheesecake. Wish I could taste it right now.

  27. OMG moje ulubione cicho ! Dostałam ślinotoku z rana. Gdybym nie byłą chora, to już bym biegła po składniki do sklepu 🙂
