Another Cheesecake project !




Hehehe...two days ago I baked another cheesecake - Japanese Cotton Soft Cheesecake, for the first time too. Since I don't have any electric mixer so I had to whisk the egg whites manually.....owh boy! I had to use every single cells of my biceps and triceps just to form the meringue and kept telling myself inside "Sabar...sabar...just a little more....skit lagi...", hehehe. Luckily my cheesecake turned out really good ,thank god! It was worthwhile putting all my effort, energy and patience beating the egg whites. So I guess I deserve to have an electric mixer ,right honey ?

Ingredients ( 8-inci )

Bahan A:
250g cream cheese
50g butter
100 ml fresh milk(1/2 cup)
6 egg yolks
1 tbsp lemon juice (if available)
1/4 tspn salt
60g superfine flour
20g tepung jagung (cornflour/cornstarch)

Bahan B:
140g gula (granulated sugar)
6 biji putih telur (egg whites)
1/4 tspn tartar krim (cream of tartar) atau 3/4 sdk jus lemon

Cara-cara
-by using double boiler method, melt the cream cheese, butter & fresh milk. Once everything is melted and mixed together let it cool. Later, add in the flour, corn flour, egg yolks, salt and lemon juice and mix well.

- in another bowl, whisk the egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy then add in sugar and whisk again until until soft peak ( bertanduk) and shiny which we call meringue.

- mix the cream cheese mixture into the meringue mixture and stir well but do not over stir

- Pour the mixture into a baking tinlayered with paper or foil .(Sediakan tin/bekas kek yg bulat berukuran 8 inci, yg digriskan bwhnye & tepi tu salut dgn kertas baking. Tuang adunan kek dlm tin kek. )

-bake the cake in the oven by using the bain marie-technic for 50-55 minutes at 140'C (Bakar kek dlm kire2 sejam, dgn cara au bain-marie (waterbath), pd 140 degrees C / 325 degrees F. Pd sesapa yg kurang pasti waterbath tu cmner, buatnye simpel jer. Lepas letak adunan dlm dlm tin kek balut bwh hgga sparuh tinggi tin kek dgn aluminunium foil -ni double protection agar air xmasuk esp springfoam pan, saya x konfiden tu yg wat gitu hehe, kalo xmo buat ok je tp advisable balut).
Then, letak tin kek tu atas dulang pembakar, pastu tuang air panas atas dulang pembakar, preferably ½ tinggi tin kek tu, lepas tu letak ler dlm oven then bakar
