Get Ready for Lots of Cheesecake illustration

The Chicago-based Eli’s Cheesecake Co. is making a 500-pound inaugural cheesecake with an apple middle layer in homage to Lincoln’s love of apples.

They’ll use 100 pounds of cream cheese, 30 pounds of sugar, 25 pounds of sour cream, 126 eggs, 50 pounds of apples and 30 pounds of butter to bake it.

Will be served at the ball for Purple Heart recipients and military families. Leftovers will be donated to a D.C. food bank.
