15 marie biscuits, crushed (Supposed to Graham crackers, but marie cookies were the only ones i found at Ookubo's place)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoon of brown sugar
4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese (Using Philadephia Cream Cheese makes the cheesecake rock!)
1 cups white sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch springform pan.
2.In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan. (Bake for 10 mins)
3.In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in vanilla and flour until smooth. DO NOT OVER BEAT!!
4.Pour filling into prepared crust.
5.Put spoons of blueberry filling randomly into the pan, use a skewer or a fork to create a marble in the batter
6.Fill Baking tray with water after placing the cake pan in it
7.Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
Make up for cracks
1. Whip sour cream or yogurt with some sugar and coat the cheesecake on the top and on the sides
2. Add more blueberry filling and marble the cake
3. Top the sides of the cake with toasted coconut flakes
I woke up to nice breakfast at the Ookubo's.. Bread from Paul! Well, not Paulie Waulie from Aerospace, but a famous bread shop that originated from France.. You can check out Paul La Paisson du pain website or wikipedia it! I'm such a wiki fan cuz they give the best summaries..
As the title suggest, we're having a garden party!!! And this is the Ookubo family's garden!! Tat-chan told me he has a really ugly garden.. He says its worst than a forest.. bla bla bla.. But does it look that bad to you? Well, apparently, to prepare for my coming, Okaasan spent some money to get someone here to tidy up the garden...
