Hi

If you refer to step No. 2, you need to beat the butter and sugar and then still in the mixer add in the eggs. After that using slow speed add in the rest of the mixture.

I hope the above is clear. The cake is wonderful.

Thanks yah.

I have not done any good cheesecake before so thinking of trying this since it doesnt look too difficult.

Yes, I'm referring to No. 2. I just wonder should I throw in the flour after mixing the butter n sugar. So its to throw in the flour n mixed together in slow speed till well combined.

Will give it a try.

I made this today. I think I put too much of part 2 mixture on the bottom layer, leaving me with not much left for the top layer, hence the pattern on the cake, but nevertheless, the cake is easy to make and most important of all, yummilicious!

At least yours looked nice. Looked at mine. It caved in the centre & the cheese went down to the bottom. Evil or Very Mad

Hi

Mine is ok, can see the layers, just that you must be very gentle when you mix the cocoa portion and the cream portion so that they don't mix too much.

Hi,

I baked this yesterday, but I set the oven to 160 degrees and after 50 mins, the centre of the cake feels wobbling so I continue to baked until
1 hr and 15 mins.

When I opened the oven at 50 min, the cake kinda of sink a bit in the
centre.

It taste good though, but I don't know what happened.

Can someone help me? should I baked at 180 degrees for 45-50 mins?
how to tell if the cake is done? I usually check by inserting a skewer.


Rgs,
Agnes

I believe the recipe states 150 degrees.

If you find that your cake is dry on the outside, but not so cooked inside, chances are your oven's temperature is too high. Adjust the oven's temperature lower eg 130 - 140. Of course this would mean your baking time will be longer.

Your testing of whether the cake is baked or not, is correct.
