Cheesecake

I received this luggage from SIA this afternoon as compensation. It is my favourite pink! Even though it is slightly bigger & lighter compared to my damaged luggage, the hard casing is actually quite thin. :( My damaged luggage was bought at USD90, but I supposed this luggage is cheaper & quality is not as good also. What is your opinion on this compensation?

I came across this cheesecake recipe from a book in giant. However, I did not take note of the title & author of this book ;P

P/S: I modified the recipe slightly.

Ingredients:
(A)
250g cream cheese
150ml milk
55g butter

(B)
20g plain flour
20g corn flour

(C)
5 egg yolks

(D)
5 egg whites
90g sugar

(E)
1 Tbsp Kahlua
1 Tbsp Cocoa powder

Method:
1) Double boil cream cheese & milk until it combined. Add in butter & leave it to cool.
2) Using a balloon whisk, add in (B) & whisk until combined. Add in (C) slowly.
3) Whisk (D) till stiff peak. Combine with cream cheese mixture & add in Kahlua.
4) Remove 1/3 of the batter & add in cocoa powder.
5) Pour the batter (alternating the plain & chocolate batter) into a 8" square pan
6) Bake @ 160 degrees for 1hr in water bath.

Verdict: My cheesecake is definitely not as pretty compared to other bloggers' featherlike cheesecake, but it is extremely soft!

Jocelinelor,
这个 luggage 的壳很软,不是很好。

CaThY said...

sotong,
Yes, very soft indeed ;)

CaThY said...

Did you also ask them to compensate for the damages inside the luggage? I think you damaged luggage is of a better quality by the look in your blog.

CaThY said...

Blessedhomemaker,
Precisely! my damaged luggage is better quality! My hubby called them back & said he is not happy with the quality of luggage, so we were told to go down Ion to collect $140 instead & someone will come my place t take back this pinky luggage. No compensation for any damages inside the luggage.

CaThY said...

No compensation for any damages inside the luggage? SIA? Unbelievable!

CaThY said...

neyeeloh,
yah loh. Luckily nothing was damaged inside the luggage...

CaThY said...

Well...I guess some compensation is better than no compensation! :D And your cheesecake looks really good!

CaThY said...

Von,
hahaha, tks :)

CaThY said...

Cathy, what brand is yours? coz what I know is that you can actually request for the same brand compensation. Of course cost wise must be comparable.

CaThY said...

Edith,
My damaged luggage is an American brand & is not available in spore.

CaThY said...

Now look at what you’ve done … you have me seriously craving for a piece of this
Looks fantastic :)

CaThY said...

Olivia,
