Hi yochana,
I looked at your ingredients saying 4 eggs (separated egg yolks and egg white) but in the method you said add in eggs one after another, i am a bit confused. Please advise.

dt said...

hi yochana, tq for the recipe. But i have 1 qn....if the eggs to be added 1 by 1 what is the purpose to split egg yolk & egg white?

Aunty Yochana said...

Oops sorry dt...I forgot the egg white part. O.K. I go edit ....


Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Mima,

I used Kitchen Aid - you can get it from Mayer Marketing. it's really good for home use, for making cakes and cookies.

Spar mixer has different capacity. I'm using one for my bread. Mine is a bigger version but do find out if it breaks down, whether there's any technician to repair it. Mine has this problem


Chris said...

Hi Aunty Lucy,

Thanks for posting the wonderful recipe. Can't wait to try it. Can I just check with you on the "fluffy" texture of the egg white? Is it more towards the soft peak or stiff peak? Also, the whipping cream you are using here is the dairy or non-dairy type? Kindly advise. Thanks so much. Warmest regards, Chris

hi yochana....i am your fan .I just want to ask you is this cake no need to put oil or butter..thanx

Aunty Yochana said...


this cheesecake has no oil or butter.

Hi Aunty,

Thanks for the advise. I went to Mayer to take a look at the kitchenaid mixer but the bowl capacity is too small. I am now considering kenwood KM020, it will be available here in Oct or Nov this year but its very costly. Do you know whether kenwood mixer is reliable?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi chris,

Whip the egg white to medium to stiff peak.

Use Dairy whipping cream. More delicious.


Aunty Yochana said...

Hi anonymous.

I have 2 Kenwood Major. I used it for the past 25 years and still using it today...

Kenwood is very durable.

Thank you Aunty Yochana. You are the best... Muak Muak... hee hee : )

Hi Aunty,

Kenwood major has the ca[acity of 6.7 liter rite? Can it be used to beat ingredients in small quantity such as 2 egg whites only or 1 butter only? Thank ya aunty, really appreciate it.

Regards - mima

Gretel... said...

Thank you Yochana for sharing this recipe, I must try it!

Aunty Yochana said...

hi Mima,

Beating 2 eggs in a Kenwood , sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't cos the whisk can't reach the base.


Forelle said...

I steamed this cake: it's wonderfull!

Hi Yochana

Very pretty cheesecake.

I just made a similar cheesecake but not sure the texture i've got is correct.. but i highly doubt so. It's dense abit like kueh texture. Do you still remember the texture of your cheesecake? I think it should be light and soft.


frogmist said...

Hi Aunty Yochana! This cake looks really pretty.. like marble cake -- steamed version. :) Can i replace cream cheese with anything? Coz my mum dun like cheese.. and also for health reason!


Anonymous said...

my question is? what's the exact time for steaming for this cakes?
