Ontario premier to reveal his 'best cherry cheesecake ever' recipe
Ontario Premier Doug Ford posted a photo of himself making cheesecake on Twitter on Tuesday, May 14, 2020.
TORONTO -- Ontario Premier Doug Ford is releasing his much-loved cheesecake recipe Friday, one that he’s boasted about on Twitter and even during an official COVID-19 news conference.
"I make the best cherry cheesecake ever. I do it from scratch. No recipe, I got it down pat,” Ford told reporters on Monday.
“You can tell I've eaten one too many cheesecakes. That's my problem."
Ford released a trailer on Twitter Thursday of himself in a kitchen making what he calls, the “famous premier’s cheesecake.”
“Do you know what one of the most popular ways to manage stress is? Baking! Stay tuned for some long-weekend inspiration,” Ford said in the Tweet.
In the trailer, Ford can be seen smoothing out the crust of the cake and then dabbing on a thick layer of cherries on top of his cheesecake.
“If I wasn’t premier, I would open up a cheesecake factory,” he says in the video.
A video and the official recipe are expected to be released Friday morning.
