Ted’s Bakery: Pineapple Macadamia Nut Cheesecake

Ted’s Bakery has been established for quite awhile now on Oahu as a fine producer of quality pies. Personally I’ve never visited their bakery on the North Shore, but some friends visiting from Texas made a stop in there the other day and brought us this fine Pineapple Macadamia Nut Cheesecake for dessert! A flavor I’ve never seen before.

That photo isn’t going to win any awards for presentation, but the cheesecake itself SHOULD win an award for taste! I’m not really a pineapple dessert fan, but this cheesecake does a Pineapple good. This cheesecake was purchased FRESH as a full cake (not just one slice) from Ted’s bakery on the North Shore. It was rather difficult to cut cleanly because the cheese would run on the knife and the brown cake on the bottom layer was a little on the crumbly side. That was the best I could do.

The brown cake on the bottom layer tastes like it has brown sugar and cinnamon, similar to banana bread, with a cinnamon and sugar glazed “base”. Next layer is a type of Pineapple marmalade, followed by a standard sweet cheesecake layer, then finished with the same Pineapple marmalade on the top. The outter rim of the cake is packed with slivered almonds and Macadamia nuts. My favorite part!

All I can sum this up is that it’s ONO. Just the right balance of sweetness, with that slight citrus hint from the Pineapple Marmelade and the crunchy nuts makes eating this a “cake-gasm”. lol

Ted’s Bakery pies are available in most supermarkets on Oahu for about $10 each (whole pie). Notable is their Chocolate Haupia and Blueberry Pies. The quality of ingredients and balance of flavors are top notch. One flavor I had the opportunity to get only once at the Aina Haina Foodland was a Pumpkin-Haupia Pie. OMG.. that was like THE BEST pumpkin pie I ever tasted in my life. I swear, if you ever see that flavor in the market, BUY IT. You’ll thank me for it.

I’ll add more Ted’s Bakery pie varieties here as I buy them and get photos of each one to post. Stay tuned and enjoy a Ted’s Pie today!

    Wow, this sounds GOOD ! Is te cheesecake section a cream cheese based cheesecake, or and Italian Ricotta cheese based cheesecake ?

    Either way, the mac nut and almond topping sounds really ONO.

    This Ted’s Bakery place is apparently famous for their chocolate haupia, accoring to the “Oahu Revealed” book. Guess I’ll have to stop there when I’m in Oahu.

    Howzit Tiki’,

    The only one you might have to drive to their bakery at the N. Shore to get is this Pineapple Cheesecake. The Chocolate Haupia Pie, Coconut Haupia Pie, Blueberry Pie and a few other flavors are readily available at most supermarkets all over Oahu.

    As for the Pineapple Macs’ cheescake section, it’s cream cheese, not Ricotta. It’s barely legible here, but If you look close, you can see it listed in the ingredients on the label.

    You and your pineapples. Tell ‘ya.

    lol

    My new husband and I just returned from staying at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore. Our concierge at the resort told us we needed to go to Ted’s Bakery and we’re so glad we did. We ended up going there every day the remainder of our trip! This pineapple macadamia nut cheesecake is INCREDIBLE! So is their Chocolate Haupia Pie….it’s heavenly. Would highly suggest anyone traveling to the North Shore to stop in….I’m a fan!

    Ted’s chocolate haupia pie is soooooooooo goood. My first taste was at a restaurant on the windward coast and I was in love. I had no idea anyone made a pie with haupia. I have visited Ted’s bake shop on the north shore. All the pies are available whole or by the slice. I just wish I could take several home! As I recall they had lunch items, but I can’t remember if they were sandwiches or prepacked lunch plates. At any rate, do stop by and definitely have the pies!
