Baked cheese cake:One recipe from my long, long lists ^^


If I say that I want to try this recipe for almost 10 years, will you believe me ^^? And I don’t know why, it’s not a hard recipe after all. 


 I got this recipe from the book “Le cordon blue dessert”, that I bought it from the book outlet in UK (in 2001), the first time that I went to UK. I came back with a suitcase full of cookbooks and it’s the starting point for me to collect cookbooks too. I never know that I’ll become obsess about books and baking this much ^^.
Just reading it and dreaming about making it or the taste of all the sweet or dish in these books make me so happy, so sometimes I read about it, feel happy and then I forgot about truly making it. And I end up with an expression “I want to try that a long time ago”, because I want to try everything, haha.
About 2-3 months ago (I can’t remember it exactly), someone asked me about the cheesecake recipe, and I realize that this one should be great. Because from the list of the ingredients to the method this one is not a heavy cheesecake, the answer to her request (I think, hehe).
The key to make the perfect bake cheese cake is the temperature, too much the cake will puff up and then collapse, too low it will take eternity to bake it and you will get dry cake. So, just take a good look while baking if it puffs too much, just lower the temperature a bit and the baking time will be longer. But keep it moist is better than drying it (you’re not making the meringue, right ^^). The cake is done when the top of the cake is spring when you touch it very lightly. My cake shrinks a bit but it still taste good ^^, so if yours is not perfect don’t worry you will love it anyway.

This seems like a promising recipe! Looks great! I was wondering if the recipe wouldn't change too much if I replaced the cottage cheese with more cream cheese.

Wow I like how you made them into mini cheese cakes - they sure look very pretty with the meringue sides and blueberry tops!

Hi Pook, did you bake the cake again after decorating with the meringue? The meringue has a slightly baked appearance - how did you achieve that?

dailydelicious said...

I use the blowtorch to burn the meringue.

Can I use cake flour instead of plain flour?

dailydelicious said...

Yes, you can use cake flour but your cake will be less firm than mine ^^.

Hi

I would love to make this cake for my hubby birthday this month. What will be right tin size to use if I follow the recipe? Do I need a spring form tin? May I know what temperature should I bake at and for how long?

Sorry for these long list of questions but I really would love to make this for my hubby.

Thank you v much!

Pat

You can use 1 8inches round cake pan, don't need to use spring form but line the pan with baking paper will help.
The temperature is the same, but the baking time can be longer, check after baking for 1½ hours.
