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 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)
  • 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 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
  • 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 can add strawberry topping

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

My Experience making Brush Stroke Cake

I wished to make something beautiful and unique for my daughter's first birthday. I have baked a lot and have made some really tasty cakes but never really worked on frosting or decorations. I didn't have a clue what to make. One day i had a cake recipe video suggestion from food network on my facebook feed, brush stroke cake I saw the video and I was convinced that this is what I wanted to make.

Of course, I googled and researched and looked at different videos to get a better idea what I wanted to do. I wanted to make a chocolate cake, so I researched some more. Finally I came upon a blog called Modern Honey where the author called her cake LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT and I thought a cake with this name had to be tried!!

Lastly for the buttercream: I followed instructions on following video tutorial for buttercream both vanilla and chocolate.

I followed the recipe exactly as on Modern Honey for the cake and the results were AWESOME!! A very big thank you to author of Modern Honey f…
