Coffee Marble Cheesecake

Tried out another recipe from 孟老师的100道小蛋糕. I don't have much choices when it comes to making cheese cakes. Remember my disaster for my peach cheesecake? I haven't got any springform or loose base pan yet, so I wouldn't want to attempt any cheesecakes with a biscuit base. That's why I picked this cheesecake recipe without a base!

Making this cheesecake is indeed simple. No need mixer at all. No need to beat egg whites. Perfect for beginners.

The steps go roughly like this: Double boil the cream cheese and sugar. Stir till the mixture is smooth and no lumps. Add milk and cornflour, mix well, remove from heat and cool. Add eggs and vanilla essence, mix well. Scoop 1 tsp of the batter and mix with instant coffee powder. Pour the remaining batter into the tin. Drop teaspoons of the coffee batter on top and swirl marble patterns with a skewer. Steam bake in hot water bath. You can replace coffee with cocoa powder or green tea powder.

Sorry, recipe will not be provided here cos I don't want to publish too many recipes from the same book.

I have no problem with eating any type of cheese cakes. But my mother thinks it's a bit too cheesy and prefers the Japanese type of cotton-soft cheesecakes. It was 1 year ago since I baked it. I miss it too! :)


  1. Hi SSB,

    I have baked the Devil Cupcakes last Sunday. I think I over baked it a little (new experience yet..ha..ha..), the top of the cupcake is a little dry, but inside was very moist. It's was very yummy indeed. My family members like it very much. Thank you so much for the recipe.

    Your marble cheese cake looks nice, but the Japanese cheesecake was even more tempting. I got to find time to bake it one day. Thank you again!


  2. Wao, the description really make it like very simple .. but I have too many "to do" in my to do list and I still have not got the cream for the ice cream (cold storage did not have it when I last went on sunday) .. the book you mention, not easy to find in JE library leh .. wait till I got time for that, i ask you for recipe in private can?

  3. Hi Destiny, so glad to know that you and your family love it. It's so far my favourite chocolate recipe. Yeah, I miss the Japanese cheesecake so much, must find time to bake it too. :)

  4. Hi Sherlyn, yes very simple. But not really the best, so I choose not to post the recipe. You can email me for the recipe,

    I reserve the book from the library. I find JE library has lesser baking books. :( If not, you can also go kinokuniya and browse through hehe...

    I got my non dairy cream from phoon huat. Good luck! :)

  5. Hi SSB,
    This is my first time here.
    Very nice blog you have here.

    The cheesecake looks really good. Must be yummy!

  6. Thanks Joyce, I love reading your blog too! :)

  7. aiyo, JE has less baking books ? sob sob .. thats the only library I go .. no time to venture to bookshops (somemore in town) .. so .. very dependent on you and HHB. kekeke.

    ok, will email you for recipe when I want to get my hand on this cake. :-) Thanks in advance.

  8. Hi Sherlyn, ya lor, I think reserving a book is cheaper and more convenient than travelling to other libraries. Hehe...

    Anyway, our to-do list is always expanding and never ends. So we must be more selective now and just bake the best and must-try recipes. :)

  9. Agree that reserving is definitely better than going there personally cos sure get the book .. but reservation means that you have to know the book title first.... so it must also be a "tried and tested" book keke.

    ya, me got less time recently, so has not been baking. Hope to pick up the job soon .. miss it.

    Still waiting for chance to go PH to get my cream for the ice cream.

    have a nice weekend

  10. Busy mum hehe... Hope u back to baking very soon. :)

  11. Love the swirl on the cheesecake. Coffee lover's like myself will like the aroma of coffee added to the cake.
