Resipi Cheesecake

Angah, a tagger at Joe's tag asked from me a simple cheesecake recipe. She asked me to email but I could not compose and email from my email account so I am uploading the recipe here. I hope she reads it. This recipe was given to me by a male colleague. I have tried it once and find it OK.

Baked Cheesecake (10-12" pie size)


1. CrustCrushed biscuits (recommended cheese crackers) or bread crumbs2 table spoon butter or margerine1 table spoon plain sugar

2. Filling
500g cream cheese (2 x 250g pack usually sold),
1 table spoon vanilla essence,
6 table spoon plain sugar,
3 eggs
2 table spoon butter


1. Make crust first. Have ready 10-12" pie pan. Crush biscuits enough to fill or layer the pan.

2. Melt the 2 table spoon butter and 1 table spoon sugar.

3. Pour into pan and mix well with crushed biscuits. Melt & add more butter if required. Use hand or spoon to pad crushed biscuits into crust layer in the pan. You can sprinkle or mix unmelted sugar with the crushed biscuits also to make crust crunchy-sweet.

4. Put in fridge to "set" or harden the crust.

5. Cream cheese must be left at room temperature to soften i.e. take out of fridge 1-2 hours or more. Before mixing the filling ingredient.

6. Turn on the oven and set to 100-150 degrees celcius (or low flame).

7. Use a mixer to whip the softened cream cheese + 1 table spoon vanilla essence + 6 table spoons sugar (you can add 1-2 spoons more depending on your taste) + the 3 eggs in a suitable container. Mix/whip well (3-4 minutes or more) until the filling is smooth. Taste to your liking. You can add a table spoon of lemon or lime to make it more sour.

8. Pour filling into pan with crust layer. Put in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. Once top of cheese filling turns slightly yellowish brown, turn off oven and leave for 15-20 minutes. Take out to cool at room temperature then put in fridge. Cake is best served a few minutes (15-20 minutes) after taken out of fridge when the cheesecake is softer.

Have fun trying OK

Lepas Kak Mutiara bagi resipi sos salsa hari tu, kawan aku AMZA ada bagi resipi Taco. Agaknya sedap dimakan dengan sos salsa kut. Aku pun belum cuba, AMZA dah modify to Malaysian taste katanya. Thank you AMZA for the recipe. I will upload the others one by one later.

Taco is like Mexican kebab (flat bread with salad , sauce ie salsa and seasoned meat)

Taco Meat Seasoning

1 1/2 tablespoons corn flour
4 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 reaspoon of curry powder
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon beef /chicken granules
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- mix all the above together
1 1/3 pounds lean ground beef - washed and drained
1 cup water


1) Put ground beef into a skillet or pan and over a medium heat brown the beef. I love to let the juices dry proper so that I do not throw away the flavour of the meat, cos some would recommend that u drain the water out for the meat once its brown.

2) Mix in the seasoning and pour in the water. simmer on medium to medium high heat until liquid dries.

3) To be served on soft tortillas or soft tacos (pita bread or lebanese bread would also make good substitute)

4) Chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes (remove the inside if not, it'll be too watery), i love chopped capsicum in my taco, grated cheddar cheese ,and salsa.

And for the authentic mexican taste - a squeeze of lime juice, hot sauce or even cili padi. yummmmm

It's worth a try right?
