  1. Your cake looks and sounds delicious. Will be sharing with my “cake baking” friend. She lives on a Wisconsin dairy farm.

  2. This looks SO good! We love good cheese of any type. Thank you so much for sharing. I had to pin!

  3. This looks delicious — I would love to make and eat it.

  4. I’m on a low-carb diet and love cheeses of all kinds. There are so many kinds that are great in meals and they make a great snack (with or without a little wine).

  5. This looks so good! I love all varieties of cheeses and this is amazing!

  6. That looks delicious! I’d use Wisconsin Cheese products in recipes…and just to snack on. My family loves cheese. My favorite kind of cheese is swiss.
    Thank you!

  7. Looks and sounds yummy! Gonna give it a try

  8. This cake really does sound delicious. My husband just loves Gouda cheese and I know he will love this. Will try it soon.

  9. We love Gouda cheese, blueberries & pineapple, so I know my family will love this! Can’t wait to try it!

  10. This looks amazing. I just went to Monroe over the weekend and had an amazing time

  11. This looks like a lovely recipe! I love the pineapple and blueberry combination! 🙂

  12. My youngest loves the colby cheese from Weyauwega Cheese and we always manage to have some of their cheese curds when we get to Wisconsin (or sometimes they are brought here to us 😉 ). When we take long drives and need a snack in the car our go-to is a cheddar cheese/carrot combo.

  13. This recipe sounds so good and who doesn’t love cheese! I am not sure if I have ever had Gouda cheese but I love cheese so I would probably love it!

  14. Mmm…cheese. My favorite pairing is brie with apples, perfect at this time of year. Monterey Jack is my favorite cheese, though, and I often use it in casseroles, in grilled cheese sandwiches, and with crackers.

  15. I’m not going to lie, I’m not a big fan of blueberries so normally I would probably skip over this type of recipe but the chance to win free cheese totally won me over! What a great combination, though I would probably swap blueberries out for another fruit!

  16. I love using Gouda slices on French onion soup. Yum!!

  17. Pineapple upside down cake is delicious and gouda would really enhance the flavor. I am (and the rest) are huge cheese fans. We use sharp cheddar a lot along with provolone, but any cheese is a good one!!

  18. I like Pepper Jack and blue cheese

  19. I would make some oven baked macaroni and cheese.

  20. I like mozzarella cheese. I would love to make a cheesy potato ranch casserole.

  21. I am not a big fan of blueberries, so I would substitute raspberries.

  22. stephanie scales campbell

    My favorite combination is cheese and almonds yum

  23. we love all cheese anykind and this looks delicious

  24. That cake looks delicious!!! I want it!!

  25. So many wonderful recipes!

  26. I love cheese and eat it all the time! especially for a snack with some almonds.

  27. We love cheese here at my house. I would love this.

  28. Being a Wisconsinite I can barely suppress my love for cheese – gouda is great, but I particularly love brie.

  29. Mary Beth Elderton

    Wow this looks so good! I don’t know that I have a “favorite” cheese—I’m a cheese lover. One thing I am looking forward to this holiday season is a special treat Hubz and I enjoy together–baked Brie. I usually make it a few times with different toppings, some savory and some sweet.

  30. Being from Wisconsin, I’m a cheese-lover at heart! But I never get the opportunity to try gourmet varieties. I would love to use these prizes to mix and match and find that perfect savory-sweet combo that makes mouths water!

  31. My Favorite is Gouda. The creaminess is divine. The recipe looks so good, I am looking forward to trying it. I love all cheeses and eat a lot of it 🙂

  32. I absolutely love pairing Super Gouda Cheese with sliced Granny Smith apples. I know most people like to make pies with Granny Smith’s but I love the smooth Gouda Cheese with the bite of a green apple.

  33. This looks so delicious

  34. I absolutely love this recipe. I have been wanting to try cheese in a sweet recipe for quite some time, and this is an excellent method.

  35. I’m a cheese addict!! No I don’t cover my recipes/food in it, but I buy the good stuff and eat it slowly by itself savoring the taste. My favorite is a goats milk or brie. This recipe sounds amazing. Might have to try it!

  36. This cake sounds delicious and I’m a huge cheese lover.

  37. Gouda is one of my favorites and I also love feta. I sprinkle feta in with my pea salad, with lots of crumbled bacon too. It’s very tasty!

  38. I really just enjoy snacking on cheese (Colby, provolone, etc) and grapes. Although I do use cheese in a lot of stuff. Go WI cheese!!! Goat cheese or feta is great sprinkled over all sorts of things too.

  39. The cake looks so good! Wisconsin cheese is truly the best!

  40. I would enjoy this with my family, we love cheese! 🙂

  41. I’m not great at pairing cheeses but a nice fig or apricot jam tastes really good with a triple cream brie.

  42. I love blue cheese and want to try a pizza recipe I saw using blue cheese, bacon, figs and caramelized onions.

  43. WOW! I am going to have to try this, it looks perfect!

  44. what an interesting recipe for sure but it looks really good!

  45. The gouda cheese on a cake gives me pause, but if it is the consistency of cream cheese, it should work fine.

    • The gouda is not really a cream cheese consistency, more of a semi-hard cheese, but mixed with the pudding it gives a bavarian cream consistency and flavor (popular with cakes such as danish layer cakes and eclairs) with a light bite of gouda flavor. Gouda goes very well with candied pineapple, so the combination is completely wonderful.

  46. This sounds sooo amazing!!! I wish I was not disabled and unable to do the necessary stirring, etc. to make it. I can’t stand for very long either so I would have to find someone willing to do all that for me. By the way, could this be done using 2 – 8 or 9 inch cake pans versus the 3 – 6 inch cake pans? I don’t have any that small and would have to use what I have already. Also, for those who don’t like blueberries (!?!), could cranberries be used instead?

  47. I love cheese with just about anything! This recipe is amazing! Apple and cheddar, ham and Swiss, mozzarella and almonds, pear and Gouda, chicken blueberry and mozzarella salad are a few of my favorite combinations.
