Yummy looking
Dumb question.....how did it taste?
It tasted like a N.Y. style cheesecake with a Razz punch to it. Instead of shredding or dicing the peppers an adding them to the batter, I decided to keep the "Sweet Zing" seperate. This way it's not a continual taste of the peppers but rather a bite of cheese and a suprise bite of heat.

Nice work. Pretty impressive build!

Just enough heat in that dish.............if there is such a limit
