Hi tatiana,

For cutting cheesecake, never use a serrated knife. Use a normal knife will do.

Hi Aunty,

For the cream cheese, can I use Philidelphia cream cheese? One box is about 227gm → 23 gm lesser than what is stated in this recipe. Is it ok?

Regards,
Claire

yochana said...

Hi Claire,

Sure...no problems. The little bit short makes no difference at all. Philidelphia is a good cream cheese.

Hi Aunty,
i made this and the brownie layer turns out to be very hard, is it normal? i baked the brownie layer for about 13mins and cheese layer for 15mins.

thank you!!

Hi angel,

when it's chilled, the fudgey brownie becomes hard. Let it thaw for awhile before eating it.

Hi Auntie,

I can't seem to find dairy cream in the supermarkets. I saw dairy whipping cream though. Is it the same? or can I use more readily available products like plain yoghurt or heavy cream to substitute this ingredient?

Rgds,
Claire

yochana said...

Claire,

for dairy cream, use brands like President, Elle Vire, Emborg, Fischelle etc

Hi Yochana

This is the one that i tried... Could it be because i used the normal chocolate instead of the baking chocolate, that y it is too sweet?

sl

yochana said...

hi sl,

use bittersweet chocolate (cooking chocolate).

hi yochana,

what i meant was... do i need to cool the brownie before pouring the creamcheese mixture into the brownie???

thanks,
Kim

yochana said...

Hi Kim,

sorry misunderstood you, no need to wait for it cool down. Just pour on top and then rebake again.

Joy said...

Hi Aunty Yochana, do you use salted or unsalted butter for the brownie? Thanks!

M.I.L.U said...

hi aunty,
i tried baking this cheesecake yesterday. I turned out quite well. But the problem is that the cheese/top layer is quite soft. When i cut it, the cheese sticks onto the knife and the cheese is also very moist. I used UHT whipping cream instead of dairy cream. Is it the cream that affect the cheese layer? Please give me some advice.

Thanks,
M.I.L.U

Hi aunty,
hope that you could give me some advice for the previous comment. Thanks!

Hi Yochana,

My brownie under-layer turns out to be fudgy. In fact, as I did not take out from the fridge earlier to soften, I could lift up the whole cake with the knife when cutting....is it due to my using of cake flour instead of plain flour? had used cake flour cos I thought it'd be better for cakes. Hope you can advise

Thanks!

Hi yochana,

If i were to half the recipe, do i still bake it using the same amount of time? And it is compulsory to use self raising flour?

Thanks, lucy :)
