Edith,
I just baked the cheese cake but have a question to ask you... the cream cheese supposes to melt into liquid form? I'm asking this as I see this recipe's already called for quite a bit of liquid from egg, melted butter, milk etc etc. And I even couldn't use up all the milk (used half only).

Anyway, the cake is nice, doesn't have a strong cheese taste. Edith, thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe Razz

I baked the cake on Friday.

1) I used plain flour instead of superfine flour. No problem there.

2) The top was a bit too crusty. I found out that I should have baked the cake on a lower shelf.

3) My friends said they could not taste the lemon. So I will increase the quantity of the lemon juice to 2 or 3 tbsp next. And maybe add zest of lemon.

your cheesecake looks perfectly done. I like the duck stencil you had on the top of the cheesecake..looks very cute.

if you want the cake to smell like Lemon or Orange, must put the zest/rind.

Hi Gina,

I baked a similar Japanese Cheesecake before. The ingredients were quite similar, just differ in quantities. Cant remember the exact amt, must chk it out though.

Yours looks spongy-like, unlike mine, taste abit like custard (rather than cheesecake). Or is it suppose to taste like that?

Hi
I finally found this receipe. I'm so happy because my hub loves to eat cheescake. I want to try to do this for him. But what is fine granulated sugar? I went to Cold Storage to find but they only have golden granulated sugar. Or can I use caster sugar instead?

Pls advise. Thank you!

Hi Peggy, fine granulated sugar = caster sugar, so you should have no problem using caster sugar(fine grain).

SmallCookie, hope you don't mind me answering this question.

The 1st time I bake this, it cracked badly and the lemon taste was not strong enough. However the crack 'healed' miraculously when I put it in the fridge.

I made it again yesterday and this time I added lemon zest as suggested and also made a biscuit base for the cheesecake. My mum prefers cheesecake with a base. I am so happy that the cake did not crack this time.

Thanks for sharing the recipe, small cookie.

Thila19, your cheesecake has a very nice texture. When I make it, I can't get that fluffy texture. Good job!

Irene, your cheesecake looks so nice and fluffy! now i can't wait to try this recipe out.

By the way, can I just melt the butter,cream cheese and milk over low heat on the stove? I'm too lazy to use the double boiler method unless absolutely necessary. :lol: Embarassed

don think that would be a good idea cos milk have the risk of burning your liquids ... also cream cheese will take a longer time to 'melt' as compared to butter.

I baked this last night, and the base turned out to be a little too dense.

Do I have to preheat the oven till the water is boiling before I put it in? I forgot, and put everything into the oven before switching it on and started baking without preheating.

Tastewise, it's great! I made so many errors during the mixing process, thought it was going to be a big failure.

Thank you small cookie for your recipe!

Finally baked this! Still cooling down so don't know how's the texture and taste yet. It did shrink a little but not too much. No top/cake flour so used plain flour.

Reena, the pooh bear's so cute! Did you use a cookie cutter for it? And your cheesecake's such a nice colour, looks so yummy!
