Lucy, thanks you. Can I substitute dairy whip cream with non-diary whip cream? May I know what's the difference in flavour & texture?

yochana said...

HI sophia,

yes you can use non-dairy whip cream instead of dairy. For cheesecake, using dairy cream will make the cake taste more delicious. You can use "Pour N Whip" for this cheesecake. Non-dairy whip cream is very bland and tasteless....normally we use this for creaming cakes instead of fillings.

Hello Lucy! Just wanna let you know that I made this last Thursday. It's yummy according to me eldest daughter. I even made another one but with strawberry which is my second daughter's favourite. But sad to say that I burnt my white chocolate due to my mistake & carelessness. So I replaced with cocoa chocolate since I don't have any white chocolate left. Next time, I will make with white chocolate. Thanks, Lucy! May I ask whether do you have a cheesecake recipe that is not too cheesy? Thanks again & regards.

Hi aunty yochana,

For the filling, does the whipped cream need to be whipped first before combining it into the cream cheese mixture?
Thanks!

yochana said...

Hi anonymous.

No need to whip it up. Just stir into the cream cheese filling.

Aunty Yochana,

I'm quite confused by the types of chocolate to use. When I got to Phoon Huat, I dun noe which one to get. The shop has compound/coverture...etc. And for your recipe, which one should I use?
Your advice needed

Regards
Mrs Tan

Hi Mrs. Tan,

I suggest you buy couverture chocolate rather than compound. I normally buy by brands like Varlhorna, Fechlin, Becolade, Karma. These are the brands that I used and Varlhorna goes by percentage of cocoa butter content. I normally buy my chocolate from Sun Lik. I believe good brands gives you a delicious cake while lousy chocolates are tasteless.

Hi Mrs. Tan,

Whether you need to whip it depends on the recipe and what you're making. For steam bake, normally I will pour into the beating machine and mix it with the rest of the ingredients.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

So for this recipe, the fillings (as mentioned in the reply above) does not need to be whipped. How abt the whipped cream for the toppings?

Hi Mrs. Tan

Topping no need to whip the cream. You have to heat it.

Hello,

may I know what is water bath?

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Water bath is a tray of water , put inside the oven and then place your cheesecake into the water till water reached half way of the cake tin...remember to wrap the tin with aluminium foil to prevent water from seeping in.
