Hi Aunty Yochana

What a beautiful cake this is. You are really an amazing baker..

By the way aunty, I have 3 of the tear-drop shape ring and another 3 heart shaped rings, may I know this recipe can yield how many cheesecake of this size?

Also, can i replace the white chocolate to bittersweet chocolate instead?

Thanks....May.

Hi May

I can't remember exactly how many it yields but if I'm not wrong, it should be around 8.

If you change the white chocolate to bittersweet chocolate, then you'll get a chocolate colour instead of white. Yes you can use the bittersweet chocolate.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Have just tried out this recipe today. Substituted white chocolate to dark chocolate converture and boy, was it bitter...hehehe. But overall it was really good though.Had some chocolate cake last week and thought perhaps I should slow down abit on the sweet chocolate...Hehehehe. I'm planning to give some to my boyfriend tomorrow..Just hope that he likes it just as much as I do...

But anyway, thanks alot for posting this wonderful recipe online.

Regards...May..

Aunty,

yochana said...

Hi delia,

hey!

I TRIED THIS RECIPE AND I MUST SAY THIS WAS BY FAR THE BEST CAKE EVER TURNED OUT FOR ME.EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! THE SUGAR CONTENT, THE CREAM, EVERY SINGLE THING.

BUT SINCE I'M A NEWBIE TO THE BAKING WORLD I'M BOUND TO MAKE MISTAKE. SOMEHOW THE CRUST OF THE CAKE WAS HARD, COULD IT BECAUSE OF THE EXCESS BUTTER OR OVERBAKING. OH YES! I USED ALL PURPOSE FLOUR INSTEAD OF THE CAKE FLOUR AS MENTIONED IN THE RECIPE AND HAD ADDED 1 TEA SPN OF BAKING POWDER. I HOPE THAT'S FINE.

CAN U PLEASE HELP ME FIX THIS PROBLEM?

THANX ONCE AGAIN. THIS CAKE WAS WORTH THE EFFORT:)

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi wafah,

Baked cakes are bound to have hard crust and for most bakers, they will just slice off the hard crust and use the inner part as a sponge cake for their mousse cake.
