Everything about this cake is perfect – in a an olive oily, rosemary-scented, whole grain, chocolate chunk studded kind of way.
It manages to be both humble and complex. The cake was barely sweet, with the chocolate chunks elevating the sweetness level to “just right.” And it’s humble complexity made it the perfect cake for a family dinner celebrating my grandmother’s birthday. Not to mention the perfect cake for breakfast the next morning.

I was perusing through some pictures, ya know, reminiscing about the summer and all that jazz, when I came across some pictures of food. Pictures of food that I had failed to share with you. Pictures of “LIGHT” CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE SQUARES that had somehow escaped my attention. Well, better late then never, or so they say.
This is a great dessert for all you New Year’s resolution makers – it’s light! (well, as light as chocolate cheesecake can possibly be while still preserving its deliciosity)
