Music: All the things she said - Tatu
Do you remember the cookbook I was telling you about? I have it finally! Few days after our shopping spree, I've decided to buy the book after payday. I realized that, all the cheesecake recipe that are in the book are actually worth it and I would never find any other cheesecake cookbook that have all the yummy and unique cheesecake recipe. The cookbook has a lot to offer me, it has a lot of yummy treats in store for me. So there, after deciding on whether to buy or not to buy the book, I immediately sent an IM to Sweets and told him that I will buy the book and ummmm and....and.....if he can go get it for me before he reports to work that night ( because work on a graveyard shift). He asked me if he can just do it the next day since it was our day off the next day but, I insisted to buy it immediately. And because Sweets knew that I was so super duper excited about the book, that night, he left early just to go to the mall and buy me my precious cookbook!
This is my new favorite book - Junior's Cheesecake Cookbook. The book features their 50-To-Die-for recipes for New York Style Cheesecake. Junior's is a very popular restaurant in New York and their specialty? - Cheesecakes. They've been baking cheesecakes since the 1950s, over the years their bakers have perfected it all from the ingredients, techniques, and of course the recipes too. Most of the secrets and techniques are all in this book. Now, let me ask you. Do you think buying this book was all worth it?
I've never been to the US so I have never tried their popular New York Style cheesecake. And, you wouldn't know if the recipes in the book are really yummylicious unless you've tried it yourself. So, last November 1, I tried to bake one of their SkyScraper Cheesecakes recipe.
My new masterpiece! Lemon Custard Cheesecake Ü
-I actually made some changes with the recipe so that I could call it my Own Recipe! This is my own version of Junior's Lemon Coconut Cheesecake. It's just mouthwatering...yummy!
What made this a unique from all other cheesecakes is because it it is a cake within a cake! This is a two layered cake. The first layer is a traditional home made cake, then enhanced them with rich, thick, creamy layer of original New York style cheesecake. This type of cakes are two day affairs. The cheesecake is baked on the first day and frozen overnight, the put together with the cake layer the following day. It takes a lot of work, patience and love but hey, it's worth the wait!
