Praline Cream Cheese Cake

An old fashion cheese cake with a pecan praline addition.


1 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 cup Pecans, chopped
1/2 cup Buttermilk
2 Tbsps. Butter
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 recipe Cheese Cake


Mix the Brown Sugar, Pecans, Buttermilk, Butter and Salt in a 1&1/2 quart or larger microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 7&1/2 minutes, stirring after each 2&1/2 minutes.  Add the Baking Soda and stir until it thoroughly foams.  Microwave on high an additional 45 seconds.  Stir and set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, prepare the Cheese Cake up to the point of baking it.  Set aside 1/2 cup of the pecan praline mixture.  Drizzle the remaining praline mixture from a spoon on top the cheese mixture (most of it will fall to the bottom below the cheese mixture).  Bake as directed in the Cheese Cake recipe.  You should omit the cinnamon garnish when the cheese cake is done.

You can reheat and pour the 1/2 cup pecan praline mixture you reserved over the top after removing the cheese cake from the oven or refrigerate it and use it as a topping when you serve the cheese cake after reheating it in the microwave oven until it is runny.


The original recipe called for microwaving 9 minutes, stirring after every 3 minutes and then an additional 1 minute, but microwave ovens have gotten more powerful since I created this recipe so I decreased the times as indicated above.  You might want to experiment with the times or the power setting on your microwave oven if it has such.
