Say cheese(cake)! This new holiday offering features classic cheesecake, rich chocolate champorado topping, and candied dilis

Combine comforting champorado, rich Malagos dark chocolate, and classic cheesecake and you’ve got Max’s Corner Bakery’s latest holiday dessert – the indulgent Malagos champorado cheesecake.

A worthy contender joins the ranks of Max’s returning Filipino-inspired holiday cake favorites – the delicious bibingka cheesecake and puto bumbong cheesecake – and is a good option for those into more chocolate-y cheesecakes.

Max’s Corner Bakery’s website

Max’s limited edition Malagos Champorado Cheesecake is made of a thick, crumbly chocolate pastry crust and a dense, creamy New York-style classic cheesecake, topped with a creamy and slightly chewy champorado layer that’s made with Davao’s famous bean-to-bar dark chocolate. The bittersweetness of the chocolate and the tart cheesecake meld well together, and is followed by the familiar, nutty “rice” taste of champorado.

Everything is topped with a white chocolate swirl (almost like condensada) and candied dilis for some crunch. The dessert can get very rich and heavy after a few bites (but there’s no umay factor here), so this can easily be shared among four to five people.

Max’s Malagos Cheesecake costs P369 for dine-in and takeout orders, while delivery orders cost P424.

Customers can get their cake (and eat it too) from Max’s Luzon stores and via delivery from Max’s website and hotline number. –
