Happy Mother’s Day!

13 05 2007

Mom always say that I am extremely picky with my foods when I was young. And still does until now when it involves chinese dishes. What to do.. like mother, like daughter lor. Mom is so picky with cakes! She only eats butter cake and cheesecake.

Mother's Day #1

So, a cheesecake it is for dearest mommy this special day. And I am going to bake! It’s cheap, and it’s a labour of love :P I searched high and low for the least expensive block of Philadelphia cheese cream in Penang. Then I found it at Gama for RM7.70! Hoho n_n

Mother's Day #2

The recipe calls for heavy cream, but I substituted with 75gm butter and 3/4 cup milk. durianberry’s $$ saving technique ^_- This is another skill I pick up from mom. She’s very thrifty when it comes to spending money.

Mother's Day #3

2.5 hours of clumsy kitchen work produce this Japanese Souffle Cheesecake! To my amazement, it turned out pretty flawless for the first cake I ever bake. No cracks or sinking in the middle which I fear most. A presentable gift for mom!

Mother's Day #4

The cake is chilled overnight to let the flavour release. In the morning, mom couldn’t be more eager to cut it. Hehe. The cake is cottony soft and melts in the mouth! Rich and creamy too. Yummy :3

Mother's Day #5

Oh wait! Not forgetting the ma-lai go (steamed Malay sponge cake?) given by mom’s friend :D

Mother's Day #6

Tada! A touch of localness.

Thank you, mommy for being a wonderful mother, a fantastic cook and a multitasking housewive!

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers in the world!

Thank you, SeaDragon for the recipe. It made mom really happy!
