Sara Lee Strawberry Cheesecake

Sara Lee's butter pound cake was one of those successes of television advertising that left fond memories etched deeply in the mind. The familiar telly commercial goes as follows; A little girl would invite her friends over for tea to play and her mom would cut a Sara Lee butter pound cake for tea. As simple as it sounds, the happy images and whole idea of tea already appealed to me at a tender age of 4.
 


Tempted by the instant strawberry cheesecake. Looks as advertised! Would pass off as a homemade non-baked cheesecake once you remove the aluminum casing.


Unlike the cloying cheesecake, Sara Lee's  a healthier alternative to sinful cheesecake, light like yogurt! The tart base is a tad too soft though.

Still preferring the sinful cousin.
