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! :)
