Melopita – a Greek cheesecake that is sweetened with honey and served with even more honey is a perfect light dessert for the summers.
By Pallavi Gupta
If you are a cheesecake lover then this recipe will be right up your alley. The only thing different about this dessert from the regular cheesecake is that this does not have any crust.
Traditionally this dessert is made with cinnamon but I am not a huge fan of the spice. Except for maybe a few bites of cinnamon roll sometimes, I dont really care for it in the dessert recipes. So, I flavored my melopita with lemon and lavender.
If you are a cinnamon fan, then by all means skip the lemon and lavender combination and stick to the traditional method. Just use some cinnamon while making melopita and then sprinkle generously after its cooked. Serve with an extra drizzle of honey.
