Cream Cheese Ogura Cake

IMG_0831

The Chinese Seventh Month , not a good month for kids and myself. Because all of us were sick during this period. I wanted to finish the cream cheese  in the fridge, so decided to bake one ogura cake for everyone. Fortunately, it turned out good.

Cheese Butter Cookies

Chinese New Year is only a few weeks away.

And I have not started on any cookies yet. Decided to test these cheesy butter cookies first.
Probably, these cookies are suitable for cheese lovers.

200g unsalted butter
1 egg yolk
50g icing sugar
100g parmesan cheese powder
200g plain flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder
2tbsp fresh milk

cheese filling : 75g cold butter, 75g icing sugar, 125g grated cheddar cheese, 85g full cream milk, 25g plain flour

Combine butter, icing sugar and egg yolk. Beat until soft.
Add in the flour mixture gradually until well mixed. Add in the fresh milk and mix well.
Cover and set aside dough in the fridge.
Combine all the ingredients for the fillings, to form a dough. Roll them into tiny balls. Wrap cheese fillings with dough balls and shape them accordingly. Bake in preheated oven at 150d for 30mins.

Tiramisu

There are many types of tiramisu. I prefer the no bake version though. Easy to put these layers together to make this dessert for everyone. 

My own style of tiramisu. 

To make expresso syrup

Dissolve coffee powder, sugar into the boiling water. Set aside to cool. 

** you can add Bailey’s Irish cream if you have. 

To make the fillings 

8 pcs finger  biscuits 
mascarpone cheese 150g
low fat yoghurt 50g
icing sugar 1 tbsp 
vanilla essence 1 tsp 
cocoa powder to dust 
some chocolate chips for decoration 

Mix the mascarpone cheese with icing sugar, yoghurt, vanilla essence and expresso syrup. 
Spread 4 finger biscuits in a 13cm square dish. 
Brush the finger biscuits with expresso syrup to moisten. 
Spoon half the mascarpone cheese on top with some chocolate chips. 
Spread another 4 finger biscuits. 
Spoon the remaining mascarpone cheese. 
Set aside to chill for 4 hours or overnight.  Dust with cocoa powder and  some chocolate chips.

Super Vanilla Cheesecake

CHEESE1

Z requested so I baked, even if it was after 6pm. No time to chill overnight and there…3/4 of the cake was inside Z’s tummy.

 

wheat crackers 65g ( I used digestive cookies)

egg yolks 2 
whipping cream 1tbsp  
vanilla extract 1tsp (I didn’t add) 
canned blueberries (I didn’t add) 
sour cream 130g 
icing sugar 20g 

Make cheesecake a day in advance. Preheat oven 170d. Prepare a 15cm round cake pan with a removable base. Lightly grease with softened butter. 

Lightly pulse the wheat crackers in a food processor. Add melted butter and mix well. Transfer crumbs to cake pan and press the crumbs tightly together. Place in the fridge to set. 

Place cream cheese in the microwave oven for 15s or until softened. Place in a food processor together with sugar, egg yolks, cream and vanilla and blend well. Arrange blueberries over cracker base, then pour the cream cheese mixture over it and bake for 20-25mins until the top of the cheesecake is light brown and springy when touched. Remove cheesecake from oven. 

Increase oven temperature to 200d. 

Mix together sour cream with icing sugar. Heat in the microwave oven for 30s until mixture turns fluid. Pour over baked cheesecake and return to oven to bake for another 2mins. 

Remove cheesecake. Cover with cling film and refrigerate overnight.
