apple cheesecake and a truffle garden

October 14, 2006 at 1:37 am | Posted in Cakes, Chocolate | 8 Comments

i was really really craving for a cheesecake, so i got down to baking one this afternoon. apple cheesecake!

null

i decided not to put any topping for this one because i wanted to feel the “cheesiness” of the cake. the combination tasted alright, it’s like a cross between an apple pie and a cheesecake. i mixed the apple pie filling with cinnamon sugar just to get that reminiscent taste of apple pie. ๐Ÿ™‚ i still think blueberry pie filling works best. i need to try out raspberry and dark cherries next.

i haven’t cut the whole cake because i made some in cupcake-form and i already ate 2. this is heaven. ๐Ÿ™‚

and this is a truffle garden that ave ordered.

i have a problem. if i need to make any more truffle gardens, i will need to source for those paper flowers. my supply has depleted and the problem is i got those flowers from chiangmai!

and i have to thank my lovely cousin for getting me those styrofoam boards because i had no time to travel all the way to art friend. i don’t know why popular doesn’t stock it.

  1. Maya dear,
    I was never particularly fond of cheese cakes,
    Until recently I tasted the one that you baked.
    Definitely a trip to Secret Recipe I will forgo,
    There is no need to go anymore.
    Your cheese cake has that undescribeable taste,
    None of the crumbs went to waste.
    I thoroughly enjoyed it with my cup of tea,
    A treat made in heaven it was to me.
    Keep on baking, try out other recipes,
    You can only a better baker be
    Now i am hitched to cheese cakes and the likes
    Baked by you dear, others can take a hike!

  2. the truffle garden is freakin’ amazing! i’d love to order that when you do get a stock of paper flowers in. let me know? scratches.the.cat@gmail.com

  3. lucrece: thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚ i don’t know where to get them! haha. i’ll let if know if i chance upon them. thanks again.

  4. it is so lovely!

  5. Hey, I tried making truffles, and I found that they melted quite fast once they’re outta the fridge… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ How do you keep yours from not melting? I need to make them as gifts for my bf. Cant have them all melted! Help!

  6. cupcake-lover: it might be the recipe/the proportions. mine will go a bit soft, but it won’t melt. you could try coating them in another layer of couverture/coating chocolate. both are available at baking supplies stores.

  7. Your cheesecake looks fab! Mind sharing the recipe? :]

    And kudos to all your pretty pretty pictures and interesting entries. :] :]

  8. Hi,
    I’m intrigued to find out how you overcame your fear of baked cheesecakes (and with obvious reasons too, yours turned out fantastic!).
    Perhaps also you might share the recipe? Many thanks!
