Chocolate orange is one of history’s great combinations. Like oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, Brad and Angelina, or Batman and Robin. Sure you can have them separately and they’re perfectly good. But when you put them together, oh boy, you really bump it up a notch.
Kicking the flavor combination up yet another notch is a healthy dose of ginger. Ginger is one of the few flavors that rivals chocolate orange, so any recipe that manages to balance all three of these ambrosial flavors is a guaranteed winner.
Getting to have cake that is actually good for you is a clear sign that you’re doing alright. With this turmeric and ginger cheesecake, there’s really nothing unhealthy to be had. But not only is it not unhealthy, it’s positively healthy!
