cheese cake

well i do like to challenge my culinary skills every now and again....and a couple of weeks back, i decided to make the seemingly impossible cheese cake....little bit of research on google and i realized that the task wasnt as difficult as i had anticipated...even then i was nervous if i would get the consistency and texture right..well i did get it right..and so here is the recipe :)

for the base:
  1. 1 1/2 cup honeymaid cracker crumbs (u can grind Parle G or marie...be sure to add more sugar if u are using marie biscuit)
  2. 3 tbsp sugar
  3. 1/3 cup butter
  4. cinnamon powder (for flavor)
Method:
  • mix the crumbs, sugar, cinnamon powder and melted butter till is form an even consistency mix....then using a spoon press the mixture in the baking dish..it should be 1/2 " thickness...pre heat the oven at 325 degree F....bake the crust for ten min........
for the filling:
  1. 16 ounces (2 packet) cream cheese
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1 tsp lemon juice
  4. 4 eggs
  5. 1 pinch salt
  6. 1 tsp vanilla
Method
  • Beat eggs, add sugar, vanilla, salt, lemon juice, mix well....add cheese and blend everything well...if u not using an electric beater u can use ur mixture as well (i used it)
  • Pour it over the crust and Bake for 55 min at 325 deg F or until the knife comes clean at the sides
  • you notice that the middle is still loose but that will set when cooled.
  • After 55 switch the oven off...but keep the cake in the oven till it cools down..if u remove it out immediately it might crack....(mine did..) once it is room temperature, refrigerate it for 4 hours or overnight...
  • decorate with strawberries or fresh fruits while serving...you can add strawberry topping

Its really easy to make this...and very very tasty....trust me...everyone loved it :)

Eggless chocolate chip cookie

I have been craving a cookie or brownie since a few days, I wanted to try egg less versions just because I wanted to build my eggless recipe collection as of my friends and family dont eat eggs.
I even had a different recipe book marked but then today as I got ready to make my batch of cookies, i noticed that the recipe I was gonna try needed softened butter and I didnt have that. So I made a quick research into cookies that required "melted butter" :) I found this recipe on baking mischief, which I decided to convert it to eggless version using corn starch and water like I had in my chocolate turtle cookie recipe couple years ago. Yes, I confess, I have not baked cookies successfully many times and so I dont make them often, however now I am encouraged to make more cookies after this recipe.

Ingredients:

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
