Japanese Cotton Cheese Cake

When I was younger, my bro would bring back these sinful fluffy cheese cake from Singapore.... But now, there should be Miki Ojisan No Mise outlets here in KL.

the Miki Ojisan

If SEPHORA can open an outlet here.... why not everybody else... eh?

Cooling process in my oven, which is about my age too... :P

So, yesterday... I attempted to make these lovely Japanese Cotton Cheese Cake from scratch..... my own way.. it turn out well!

I was already hoping if it was as good as Giant RM9.90 cheese cake pon ok laa.... but it turn out much much better than i expected! The fluffiness, the subtle blend of cheese, milk and butter..... melts in your mouth..... I did altered the recipe a bit.... as it uses 6 whole eggs! I added about 2 teaspoon of vanilla essence to drown the egg'y taste....
Use vinegar instead of cream of tar tar to stabilise the beaten egg.. bcoz i was too lazy to buy one.

But heck, even with all this alteration, the taste was still the same! I'd say even better! Even hubby who wasn't a fan of the fluffy type cheese cake LOVES it!.. He is more of the traditional new york style cheesecake fan.

So, feast your eyes babe..... luscious kan? Best thing about this cake is... it is simple to make.... uses only one bag of Tatura cream cheese... if you bake the normal new york style cheese cake, you need 2!!

Close up, nice fluffy melt in your mouth soft blend of cheese, milk and butter....
 OK, here the recipe :

Japanese Cotton Cheese Cake (take from :

- 140g or 0.6 cup or 10 tbs fine granulated sugar
- 6 egg whites
- 6 egg yolks
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar -->changed to 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
- 50g butter
- 250g cream cheese
- 100ml fresh milk
- 60g or 4.2tbs cake flour (can also use plain flour)
- 20g or 1 ½ tbs corn flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence  for the white eggs batter
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence for the egg yolk batter

1. Preheat the oven at 160°C. Melt cream cheese, butter and milk over a double boiler. Cool the mixture. Fold in the flour, the cornflour, salt, egg yolks, vanilla and mix well.

2. Whisk egg whites with cream of tartar/vinegar until foamy. Add in the sugar and whisk until soft peaks form. Add vanilla

3. Add the cheese mixture to the egg white mixture and fold well. Pour into a 8-inch round cake pan (lightly grease and line the bottom and sides of the pan with greaseproof baking paper or parchment paper). Wrap the base of your cake tin with aluminium foil if you are using a springform tin, to prevent seepage.

4. Bake cheesecake in a water bath for 1 hour 10 mins or until set and golden brown at 160°C. I put a tin foil cover first the remove it at the last minute for browning stage.

5. Leave to cool in oven with door ajar, about 30mins to 1 hour. Sudden changes in temperature may cause the cake to cool too quickly and collapse.

Chocolate Pavlova with Fresh Berries - sexy pics!

Akibat tringin benor nak buat Nigella Lawson's Chocolate Pavlova... maka aku paksa laki aku ke pasar mlm Bangsar right after make trial session with a customer... kol 9 pon kol 9pm laaa.....
Al- kisah nak cari fresh berries.... aritu gi Giant dah.. tapi bayangkan strawberry dah kulat, buruk pon nak jual RM9??? Boleh blah la kan.... Baik aku sabar, beli kat pasar mlm Bangsar tu... RM4 jer sekotak... fresh, lawa2 and murah... sesuai kalo buat deko mkn..... or smoothie....


2 layer choc pavlova

Aku saja letak few pics besor2..... kasi korang
terlioq.... muahahahha! (jahat siot)

Recipe for Chocolate Pavlova With Berries (adapted from Nigella lawson website)


  • 6 egg whites(aku guna 4 biji aja)
  • 300g caster sugar(aku guna 3/4 cup only)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, sieved
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic or red wine vinegar(guna cuka bodo pon OK, and tambah vanilla 1.5 sudu teh, hilang rasa hanyir teloq skit)
  • 50g dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 500ml double cream
  • 500g raspberries
  • 2-3 tablespoons coarsely grated dark chocolat


Serves: 8-10.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4 and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Beat the egg whites until satiny peaks form, and then beat in the sugar a spoonful at a time until the meringue is stiff and shiny. Sprinkle over the cocoa and vinegar, and the chopped chocolate. Then gently fold everything until the cocoa is thoroughly mixed in. Mound on to a baking sheet in a fat circle approximately 23cm in diameter, smoothing the sides and top. Place in the oven, then immediately turn the temperature down to 150°C/gas mark 2 and cook for about one to one and a quarter hours. When it's ready it should look crisp around the edges and on the sides and be dry on top, but when you prod the centre you should feel the promise of squidginess beneath your fingers. Turn off the oven and open the door slightly, and let the chocolate meringue disc cool completely.
  3. When you're ready to serve, invert on to a big, flat-bottomed plate. Whisk the cream till thick but still soft and pile it on top of the meringue, then scatter over the raspberries. Coarsely grate the chocolate so that you get curls rather than rubble, as you don't want the raspberries' luscious colour and form to be obscured, and sprinkle haphazardly over the top, letting some fall, as it will, on the plate's rim.

Pilot Test - Pavlova Kiwi

Dah bosan asyik Red velvet cake.... mula la tangan nak cuba menda baru.... Skarang ni tgh trend makan Pavlova pulak..... Slalu dengaq org kata Pavlova kat alexis, Empire sodaap!... But aku tak pernah try pon menda ni.... so semlm, testing ler buat pavlova ni... sebab takot tak jadi, maka aku buat half portion ajer.... Buat dua layer, guna topping kiwi ngan pisang ajer....Tambah sikit cadbury punya choc shaving curls...

 Kalo dah pass, sedap oleh SIRIM (laki aku)... baru leh buat pakai buahan mahai like raspberry, strawberry etc....

And, it turn out not bad, except aku rasa kena kurangkan lagi sugar portion.... Kek orang puteh ni, mmg slalu overdose gula la..... Agaknya, gula kat negara depa tak semanis kita punya kot.....

But, aku tetap kena gi try Pavlova, Empire.... nakkkk jugakk!

Recipe take from cattylife

4 large egg whites
1 cup caster sugar (sila kurangkan 3/4 kalo tak nak mati overdose gula)
1 teaspoon vinegar
(sila tambah 1 sudu vanilla... kalo tidak nnt ada rasa hanyir teloq, which I hate)
1/2 tablespoon corn flour
300-500mL whipping cream (depends how much cream you want. I used 500mL because I’m gross like that)
1 punnet strawberries
1 punnet blueberries
  1. Pre-heat oven to 120°C/250°F.
  2. On a sheet of parchment/baking paper, draw an 8″ diameter circle. Turn over, or place another sheet on top but make sure you can still see the circle.
  3. Separate egg whites from the yolk and place in a large mixing bowl. 4 egg whites don’t look like a lot but believe me, they will grow.
  4. Beat at a medium to high speed until soft peaks form. This should only take a couple of minutes.
  5. Slowly add in the sugar while still beating and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Your mixture should now be a smooth meringue.
  6. Sprinkle vinegar and corn flour over the mixture and fold in with a spatula.
  7. Using a spatula, spoon the mixture onto the prepared baking tray and baking paper keeping the meringue inside the circle. Smooth over and try to make the outside edges slightly higher than the inside edges.
  8. Bake meringue in oven on a middle shelf for 90 minutes. After 90 minutes, turn off the oven, leave the oven door slightly open and leave pavlova to cool for 2 hours or over night if possible.
  9. When ready to serve, beat the whipping cream in a large bowl until it becomes firm enough so that it can hold itself up. Spread across the top of the pavlova.
  10. Wash and prepare strawberries and blueberries, decorating the top of the pavlova. Serve pavlova with any left over berries.

Pack Up And Leave .... Forget Everything

As we grow up, commitments build up... striving for financial stability.. finding what we want to do in life... job in hell... or bosses from hell..... PTPTN making sure the kids has the best we can offer... being a parent... being a daughther/son... being a wife/husband.... being part of the community.. save our planet... pray to God..... natural disaster alert....

I tell you, it never ends.....

Banyak menda dlm pala.... tunggu masa nak nangis aja... or amok.
So, whilst we buat dunno.. try to move on with our daily life... keep moving on... becoz we have to.... lagipon, other people may have it worst... so be thankful....

sekali sekala... have a getaway.... forget everything...... eventhough for a moment.... becoz it will keep you going against the odds, with better focus.

Pack up and leave.... go anywhere...

These pictures are not for showing off anything...

it is juz us, taking a break, appreciating life in front of us....
We may plan ahead, but luck juz wasn't on our side..... so, we thought.....
But things turn out surprisingly pleasant afterall..... so relax.... shit happens, OK.

We got each other...

Who's having a BAD day?! WHO?? (sambil tarik rambot sendiri...)

An entry without sense or logic.

Been feeling tired and very moody lately... actually most of the time...
I thought i was pregnant.... bcoz of my dream the other day.... i saw 2 blue lines...

But, no....(.....fuhh, lap sweat)
just time of the month..... I think the neighbours may notice a sudden decibel surge of me having shouting match wiv d kids....

I do dread the coming weeks.... so many things to do...
to go... to buy.... to think..... to commit... or not to commit.... to move.. to fly there... back... drive... back n forth... toilet train Aqid... perfection... to let things slide.... to let go....


OK..... maybe Not OK.

(2 hours, later.... kids, husband all away.... on the way to KTN)

Suddenly this quaint 852sqf apartment seems so big.... and lonely.....

What do I do next?

Look at the kids pics....

sedih.... kejap.

Cantik dan amat menggiurkan

Cantik dan menggiurkan....
Sorry bout the misleading title... but to me, this is very very inviting, luscios, beautiful and slurrp .... yummy!

This is a waffle from Gelare, eCurve, ... ground floor next to Tony Romas....
The 4 point cream is not from the can... you can taste it. The ice cream is heavenly.... and the waffle itself is perfectly done... u can taste the milk, egg as good as homemade freshly baked... not pre-mix crap out of the box, just add water. Although the price is rm17.90...(blom masok tax lagi) is worth every single darn bite....
Therefore, usually I am particular about pricing, but this is an exception.
Tambah plak ngan hot latte.... mmmmm.... perfect.
