Baked this for our ladies' lunch today. Actually my uncle who is a HK Mandarin Hotel cake chef taught me this. After today's lunch I had 11 orders for this cake for over the CNY period (i.e first to 15). There were 12 of us at lunch just now!

This is the first time that I have done this cake, so I sliced the cake into 12 slices and packaged it as above. This way I can know what the cake is like inside before I bring it out to lunch otherwise if the cake is no good then very "pai sei".

(He did not specify which brand of each ingredient to use. The brand names posted in this recipe are what I used to bake this cake).

Ingredients: (for 20cm springform cake pan)
Base:

100g digestive biscuits (crushed)
50g unsalted butter (melted - 1 minute on HIGH in microwave)

Filling:
500g Anchor Cream Cheese
100g - 120g Castor Sugar
3 Eggs
65g President whipping cream (35% dairy cream)
50g Valrhona White Chocolate (melted via double boil)
1/2 zest from 1 lemon (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence or 1/2 tsp lemon juice (I used vanilla)

Sour cream Topping
120g Hokkaido Organic Sour Cream
70g Sweet Whipping Cream (non-dairy cream)

Method:

1. Toss crushed biscuit crumbs into melted butter.
2. Press this biscuit mixture over the bottom of a lined springform pan and leave aside.
3. Cream cheese and sugar together till smooth and add in the eggs one by one beating till smooth and then add the rest of the ingredients and beat well.
4. Pour filling onto cake base and bake over a hot water bath at 150C for 40 minutes.
5. Remove the water bath now and continue to bake cake till cooked. It may take another 20 - 30 minutes. Remove when cooked and chill completely.
6. Beat sour cream and sweet cream until stiff and pour this over totally cooled cake and bake for a further 5 minutes at 200C. Do not move the cake too much as the sour cream topping might show crack lines.
5. Chilled before serving.

Notes: The chocolate lines are just decor and the piping around the cake are the left over sour cream topping.

IF only you were with us just then for lunch.

My friends were all full to the brim after having Korean BBQ and when they saw my cheesecake, they ordered coffee. Unfortunately, the coffee was tasteless and we were sighing, saying that we should have gone to UCC for our coffee and cheesecake.

After today's lunch, I have orders for 11 cheesecakes for the CNY, there were 12 of us at lunch. :lol:

Well, thank god that you are in Japan but not SG otherwise, you might not even fit into your pants after all the sinful CNY indulgence! Anyway, you don't need CNY to indulge do you!

With this cheesecake is not "happy baking" but "singh kor baking" ar!

Poor Florence. If I were there, I'd help you. I just love getting my hands dirty in the kitchen and in the garden. CNY or not, doesn't matter. Japan has wonderful wonderful cakes, breads and pastries, rather than resist all the time, I surrender some of the time *lol*

Ai ya! You should be my neighbour in HK and just pop in anytime to lend a helping hand.

I know Japan has got such good bread and pastries. I live 10 minutes walk away from UNY which is a 3-floor department store just like SOGO. The basement is the supermarket area and there is a bakery called PANASH which sells really nice and soft bread loaves and pastries. Also there is PAPA BREAD. Now there is a new stall selling octopus balls - what do you call this in Japanese? My girls love it 8 balls for HK$30 quite expensive!

Also, I always surrender myself to their bread. Sometimes couldn't resist those just out of the oven that I eat them straight away before paying at the counter with the empty bag. Greedy me!

They're called takoyaki. Too bad I don't like squid but I'll take your word for it that they're good. Wink Speaking of being in HK, my hubby's there now just for a couple of days. I've sent him on a shopping mission for me, hunting down plum sauce and whatever else the kids and I are missing. I was planning to meet him there but priorities, priorities...

I wish I could have but the kids have school. Can't even go to Chinatown on the 9th for the same reason. Gotta cook up our own festive spirit at home.

Pretty thrifty!

In HK, 1 kg Anchor cream cheese is S$10 whereas 1 kg "P" cream cheese is S$20!
