I’m visiting friends in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) and they introduced me to a local treat.

The good news is, it’s delicious. The bad news…it’s only available in the Vancouver area. It’s also pricey: $20 for a 19 oz (540g) cake.
6″ retail box (frozen) in New York Lemon
8″ wholesale cakes (fresh or frozen):
New York Lemon
Pumpkin Spice (seasonal)
We had the New York Style lemon. It wasn’t really New York style, which is dense and rich. This was light and melted in your mouth. So doesn’t quite hit all my cheesecake satisfaction buttons (I’m a NY style girl) but it was really quite good.
Given that I can’t get this at home, I wonder if I can duplicate it. It seems fairly simple. The filling is a soy-based cream cheese (the Follow Your Heart brand is very good and may be similar to what they use, if not the same) with tofu (I assume silken) and then they add sugar, lemon juice, salt, and an egg replacer (theirs is various starches).
The crust is cornmeal, puffed millet, sugar, grape juice, coconut flour, Earth Balance margarine, and ginger.
Maybe when I return home…
