'Do What You Like' Feather Light Cheesecake

Life has been pretty hectic lately.... almost breathless ! Just came back from the Reserve Forest of Kahang. Hubby & I spent a few days there.... waiting for our friends (tiger & elephants) to turn up. haha..... I'm not joking ! During our visit on last month, the tiger turned up nearby again and we all heard him roar so loudly for the second time. >o< Simply amazing. You think its easy to hear a wild tiger's roar ! No, not easy at all I'm telling you.

After all, I still need something to pamper myself. Something indulgence. And here, I made a simple cheesecake to satisfy myself & my boy. Wish my girl is around too to enjoy this !


Ingredients for biscuit base :
180gm  digestive biscuit, finely crushed
 (I used tiger chocolate biscuit)
125gm  butter, melted

Method :
stir butter into crushed biscuit and mix to combine, then press it to a 7" tray lined with grease proof paper and keep refrigerated till set)

Ingredients for Sponge :
(A)
250gm cream cheese, soften
400ml milk
70gm all purpose flour
5 egg yolks
1 tbsp lemon juice

(B)
5 egg whites
110gm sugar

Method :
(1) by using ingredients (A), cook cream cheese and milk in a double boiler untill cheese melted, stir gradually.
(2) off the heat and stir in flour little by little untill well mix, leave aside to cool. (the cream cheese mixture should be in thick paste form)
(3) now slowly add in egg yolk & lemon juice untill well combined and smooth.
(4) in another bowl, whisk egg white till foamy.
(5) then add in sugar bit by bit and beat till peak form.
(6) now, stir 1/3 of egg white mixture into mixture (A) and mix well, then stir the remaining egg white mixture into 2 batches till nicely combined.
(7) pour cream cheese batter to the icy cold biscuit base tray.
(8) bake at preheated oven.at 160'C over water-bath for about an hour or till the center is set when tester came out clean.
(9) cool completely before removing the cake from tray, and best to keep refrigerated for at least 3 hours before serving.

One of my kids favourite cake. I'm glad it turns out great and the texture is gorgeous. Really light & spongy.

Just simply serve them with some homemade dulce de leche sauce or any homemade fruit compote or homemade fruit sauce. And that is why I'm calling it 'Do What You Like Cheesecake'. ha ! I bet you'll going to ask for more. >o< Hope you're all going to have a lovely week ahead. Blessings & smile always !

OMG! I'm not sure I want to hear the tiger raw nearby, I'm already used to foxes and other small predators around my house, but tigers would be too much I guess, allthough it's well said one gets used to everything after a while. Could you share some pictures here sometime?
