Double Happiness

Double Cheesecake

Made two types of cheesecakes yesterday, Blueberry Rare Cheesecake and Cotton Soft Japanese Cheesecake. The blueberry rare cheesecake is sandwiched between Japanese cheesecakes. It is suprisingly light and refreshing, tastes very different from the cheesecakes I usually bake. I guess this is the only cheesecake I would ever pig out.

Japanese Style Cheesecake

Yummy cake in making... first I baked this Japanese cheesecake. Then I made rare cheesecake with Ringo's simple strawberry rare cheesecake recipe. You should see her rare cheesecake, beutiful!

Hi Heok,

(1) Chill the Japanese (cotton soft) cheesecake first, then divide into two.

(2) Place one piece of (1) back into springform pan, fill in rare cheesecake, then place another piece of (1) over the top. Lightly press down the cake. Chill before removing from springform pan.

Your cheesecake looks delicious and I decided to try out your recipe. The cake rise well during the whole baking process. However, when I switched off the oven and left the cake in the oven(door closed for 5 min), it shrank from the sides as well as from the top by about 3cm. Is this normal? How can I prevent it from shrinking?

Lydia said...

Hi Alice,

It is normal that the cake shrank by 1/4. Texture shld be soft and smooth (close to creamy), not spongy.


Elaine said...

Hi Lydia, I need to impress some HK friends with this recipe. Can you explain what you mean in Direction #8 (Cotton Cheesecake) Bake with waterbath? Thanks.

- Elaine.

Lydia said...

Hi Elaine,

Water bath aka bain-marie method, place cake pan (with batter) in a shallow pan filled with warm water then bake as usual. All the best.

Lydia said...

Hi lydia,
Is it measuremet for the cheesecake is equal with the measuremet of blueberrrry cheesecake..
And if I want to double the measuremet, is it both of that I need to double alsoo?

Anonymous said...

And one more, if I want to do same like in the picture above, should I just follow your recipe with double it?

Lydia said...

No, the amount aren't the same.
The recipe of the cheesecake make a not-so-tall cake, but enough for this cake (2 round slices).

If you want to make a 8" round cake, just follow the recipe.
