Hi yochana,

I baked this cake yesterday n it was yummy. I used only 100g of sugar n the sweetness is just nice. Have u tried the "feather light cheesecake" on the recipe book?

yochana said...

Yes, I did the feather light cheesecake and it's simply delicious.

Well done anonymous.

Hi Yochana,

Do we need to whip the dairy cream before adding into the mixture or juz add in the liquid form dairy cream?

Thanks,
Rachel

Hi Rachael,

No need to whip the dairy cream, just pour in and mix till slightly thickened.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I'm new to baking and would like to know what do you mean by water bath. Also, when you said blend the biscuit is it using blender or food processor?

Btw, thanks for your help the other day on my queries on the "K" beater and mixer.

Hi clariss,

I blend the biscuits with a blender.

Water bath means you put a tray of water into the oven and then your cheesecake wrapped with aluminium foil or put a put underneath to prevent water from seeping in, place into the tray of water and bake at 160C.

Hi aunty,

sorry to bother you again. but does that mean is omit the 150g chocolate & replace with 150g sugar?? how much sugar should i replace? for the pan, do i need to use the detachable bottom pan or just normal pan will do? if normal pan wat is the best way to remove the cake from the pan? i tried long time ago once using normal pan and the base came out all crushed & in bit & pieces. Any tips or advise on this?

Pls excuses me with such long list of question.

THanks Aunty!!

Hi Ugly Ducking,

Replace with 100 gm, sugar will do. A loose bottom pan is the best solution but if you don't have it, use an aluminium foil to line the cake pan with overhanging edge so that it's easier to pull it out.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I really want to try this cake this weekend... looks sooo yummy! I have a question though, when you say '1 lemon zest', do you mean the whole lemon?

Thanks!
Fiona

Hi Fiona,

yes, it's one lemon.
