Butter Cheese Cake (芝士牛油蛋糕)

Hi.  I’m back.  Happy 2014!!

May 2014 bring joy and peace to you and your loved ones.

To recap, I’m quite proud that I have achieved many last year in baking and cooking.  You know what?  I had baked and cooked total 65 recipes from June to December 2013!!  For someone like me, who didn’t cook or bake at all prior to that, it’s indeed a great achievement.

There’re also many recipes that I had tried and didn’t work out for me.  But it was through all these failures that I achieved total of 65 recipes.  The only bake that I still don’t get it right until now is Macaroon!  Each time I made, I failed terribly and had to literally throw them all away.

I don’t think I could achieve that much without participating in the events like
Cook-Like-A-Star; Little Thumbs Up; Bake Along and Cook-Your-Book.  It is through these events that have motivated me to bake along and learn along with the rest of bloggers.

Thanks to all fellow Bloggers who have left value comments in my blog and especially to Zoe (Bake for Happy Kids); Joyce (Kitchen Flavour) and Yen (Eat Your Heart Out).   They've never failed to reply to my queries and doubts promptly whenever I encountered any.  

I’m so glad to know you, ladies.  Cheerios!

Ok. Back to my baking.  Here is my first bake for 2014 – Butter Cheese Cake (芝士牛油蛋糕
from 蔡老师 完美芝士.

This is a very buttery and cheesy cake and definitely will blow your mind off.  
It is also a very fattening cake.  You can’t have it all by yourself.  But it is delicious.  Just one slice to go along with a cup of coffee or tea, it already brings great enjoyment to me.

100g       caster sugar (I reduced it to 70g)

Cheese layer
