My First Serious Baking
Till now I still wonder how this baking passion got started. Now I remember, it was when I exchanged my bonuslink points for a Faber cake mixer and next came a new Zanussi electric oven. After a couple of months, as the portion get bigger so does the mixer and end up having a Kenwood major classic mixer, a big freezer and a chiller.
I have this huge interest and bit thingy about cheesecakes. Not sure why but I guess it might be the hunger for a piece of thin crust and top with huge thick aroma soft creamy cheese. My first cheesecake writer that I came across is Mary Crownover and she is a real knockout. After doing an extensive reading on her books, I decided to embark on baking a cheesecake with a local flavour.
This cheesecake looks great and refreshing. The beautiful brown creamy cheesecake with dark Oreo crust will make you love it. The aroma smell of the gula melaka and toasted pecan gives me the fondest memory of little town Melaka.
