TGIF! Finally got some spare times to update my blog. Baked a small cheese cake on Tak's request, but at the end I ate more than him! Bad... felt guilty for a few days. The original recipe is actually for a whole 9" cake but as usual I havled the recipe and baked with loaf pan. Still, it was too much for us. And, the bar idea I got it from Yani... I am a big copycat!
80g short bread, crushed
1 tbsp butter, melted
450g cream cheese
¾ cup white sugar
½ cup milk
½ cup sour cream
½ tbsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp cake flour, sifted
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Grease a loaf pan or line it with baking paper.
In a medium bowl, mix together short bread crumbs with melted butter. Press the mixture evenly onto bottom of the loaf pan.
- In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and cake flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust.
- Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door ajar. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
Note: This recipe is for 9" pan, but methods above are for halved recipe baked with loaf pan to make bars. For 9" round cake, bake for 1 hour.
