BAKED NEW YORK STYLE CHEESE CAKE WITH BLUEBERRY SWIRL

image

        When i first start baking, New york Cheese cake was my first choice…now i’m wondering why i chose this cake when at that time i know nothing about cake..not even a little…with only a magazine recipe as guide i bake this cake and guess what? They love it and asking for the recipe. Today i will share my new york cheese cake with blueberry swirl on top…and i am not sure if it still called NEW YORK CHEESE CAKE cos i have added blueberry on it..hehehe

     This cake , very dangerous for someone who is on diet but who care right? when it come to this cake everything is possible.. ok..back to the recipe, make sure you read everything carefully before making this…you dont want to waste all the ingredient right? In this recipe you will need 1 kg of cream cheese and It quite expensive though. So please read before you start. I am not saying that i am an expert but it based on my own experiance. Start when you are ready and fully understand what you are going to do. I’ve been throungh an experience when i was mean to making banana cake and in the middle of the process i forgot to put my mashed banana …and the bad thing is i didnt realize until i already put my batter into the steamer for a couple of minute.

        Please choose a good quality cream cheese such philadelpia cream cheese . I have been use other brand like xxxxx sorry cant mention the brand here..and it quite salty . Of course there is still a lot more good quality brand of cream cheese out there but please choose the one that you familiar with.

         2nd, sour cream…it so difficult to find it at my place , i’m not sure in your place but if you can’t find it dont worry…there are substitution for it. You can substitute with greek style yogurt..what if you cant find this too?  Well you can use plain yogurt but make sure to drain the access of water on it…what if no yogurt ? Well 1 thing i can advice here is just forget about it..you can say goodbye to new york cheese cake and try another recipe…

          3rd , if you using springform pan try not to use foil to cover the bottom with proposed to prevent the water from seep inside the cake..it doesn’t work trust me..the water will still able to seep inside..i’m not sure if i should blame the foil or my self.. but i’m certainly sure that i’m doing it  right  just it still leaking somehow…here i would like to suggest you to used another baking pan that bigger than your springform pan…you gonna put your springform pan inside and this is the safety way to prevent the water from seep inside..

        4th the temperature, all i can say is know your oven…this cake need a moderate temperature which is not to hot nor to cold…too hot temperature will make your cake crack and burn on the top very quick, and when it too cold you will need an extra hour to bake the cake.Also after baking and turn off your oven please dont take your cake out right away…let it sit there for another half  hour …drastic change of tempareture will make the top of your cake crack too..

image

       Last but not least, how to know your cake is done? Well when the side of the cake is firm you know you are done..don’t worry if you see the middle is still jiggling when you gently shaking the baking pan because that how it supposed to be. The middle of the cake will be firm as it cool down.. And…the most important thing cake is more delicious after overnight…i know waiting mean suffering but it worthy to wait…rainbow after rain…something like that but i’m not good on this…

JAPANESE SOUFFLÈ CHEESE CAKE

image

Make one 7′ round pan

Ingredient :

125 g philadelpia cream cheese
125 ml full cream milk
60 g butter
5 egg yolk
2 tbsp lemon juice
75 g cake flour
35 g corn flour

5 egg white
120 g castor sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

Method :

1. Measure all ingredient before you start. Line your pan with parchment paper on bottom. I prefer to line the bottom only. I am not good in lining the side of pan and always end up with ugly side. For my opinion, use a right pan so that you doesn’t have to line the side of your pan.Pre heat your oven at 140’c.

2. Sift cake flour and corn flour then set aside. Separate the egg white and egg yolk. And make sure your bowl is clean enough, no trace of oil. I always clean my bowl with hot water and wipe it dry before i separate the egg. Your egg white will not rise to fully valume if your bowl is not clean enough.

3. In a clean bowl, add in butter and cream cheese. With a hand whisk stir the butter and cream cheese until melted over double boiler. You may see the butter and cream cheese seems like doesn’t come together but don’t worry cos’ once you add a milk it will become a smooth liquidy batter. Turn off the heat and let it cool.

4. Once the butter and cheese mixture is cooled ,add in egg yolk one at a time. Stir until well combined. Add lemon juice and flour mixture. Stir constantly until well combine. Strain the batter. I always strain the batter to get a smooth and silky batter. No more giant lump of  flour or unmelted cheese on the batter. Set aside.

5. Whisk your egg white until foamy. Add in cream of tartar and whisk again. Sometimes people will use lemon juice or corn starch instead of cream of tartar but i’m more comfortable with cream of tartar. Cream of tartar will stabilize the egg white. Ok now ,add in sugar and beat with high speed until egg white became shiny..should be firm peak stage. Firm peak stage is when the meringue able to hold it shape and the peak is pointing down.

6. Add the egg white to cream cheese mixture in 3 batches. Make sure that the batter is almost even before you folding the next batches. When done tap the bowl a few time on worktop to removed the bubble. Pour the batter at 10 cm height to make sure the bubble will burst as it flow down. ( i forgot to do this step and i end up with a lot of hole on top of my cake).

7. Bake at 140’C for 1 hour over waterbath method. To high temperature will make your cake crack on the top and if it too low it will couse the cake undercook or will need a longer time to cook.

8. Once done, let it cool for awhile about 5 minnute and when you see the cake is shrink a bit and pulled away from the sides of the pan, unmould it immediately. When the cake is cool enough, refrigerate for over night before serving.
