Plain Cheesecake | Baked with Rice Cooker

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.    

 

BIG Lobster at Red Lobster | Odaiba, Japan

Last few weekend, I had a trip to Odaiba with my colleagues. That was the fourth time I visited to Odaiba, a man made island in Tokyo. It is one of the popular tourist spots in Japan, famous with shopping and entertainment district. Rainbow Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Aqua City and the Palette Town Ferris Wheel are few famous spots in Odaiba. Of course that are not the all in Odaiba. While we walk around Aqua City, we found a restaurant that is serving lobster. Looking at the display set, it was so tempting. With a reasonable price of the set, we decided to give it a try.

Baked Durian Cheese Cake Recipe

"Is this a durian cheesecake? A piece of durian cheesecake in Continental bakery cost RM7++." My brother ask me this question when I pass him a durian crepe cake that I made few weeks ago. "Do you think durian can match with cheese cake? Not sure how will it tastes." A sentence made by Camus's mom when she ate the durian butter cake that I baked few weeks ago. With the questions and statements out from them, I have a strong believed that I must bake a durian cheese cake. To satisfy my baking desire and answer them with actual result. Due to last minutes decision of making this cake, I have no time to look into my own recipe book, hence I search the recipe from internet. I got it from Kitchen Corner, I have a confident that the recipe I get from this blogger will work well after read through her blog for quite sometimes. She is from Singapore and I found her blog during I surf for baking blog. Thanks Grace for the recipe. Ingredients:For the base:200g digestive biscuits100g butter, melted For the filling:500g cream cheese80g caster sugar220g durian flesh3 eggs (medium size, total about 160g)90ml milk1 tbsp + 1/4 tsp cornstarch Method:For the base:1.Stir all ingredients until combined.2.Press mixture into base. Set aside. For the filling:1.Beat cream cheese, sugar until smooth.2.Beat in durian.3.Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.4.Beat in milk and cornstarch until blended. 5.Steam baked at 150C for 30 minutes (I used smaller cake pan) or until light brown.6.Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely. Chill in fridge for 5 hours or overnight. I would say that the durian cheesecake tasted superb with creamy and smooth texture. I would strongly recommend this recipe to all of you. But due to I do not blend the durian, it effected the texture. I would suggest to blend the durian first if you prefer a very smooth texture of cake.

IMG_20130716_095156Instant noodles are everywhere around the world, how about instant rice? I saw it few years ago when I was staying in Tokyo but never buy it as it looks weird. This time I am staying in Osaka, the apartment does not provide us with gas cooker, only microwave oven and rice cooker.
Getting dinner after work is a bit troublesome as many shops closed after 8pm. To save the trouble and prevent eating bento from convenient shop, I bought some fresh meat and vegetable to cook during weekdays.
First meal I cooked is sukiyaki. I cooked it with rice cooker, I bought some pork slice, chicken, vegetable, mushroom and of course, sukiyaki sauce.

To cook, add sukiyaki sauce plus some water into rice cooker. Power on rice cooker, when boil, add in pork slice and chicken, then mushroom, then vegetables. When everything is cooked, serve hot with instant rice.

To cook instant rice, tear off a little part of rice pack, add in some water. Put instant rice in microwave oven for 2 minutes. Done! It tasted exactly like what you cook in rice cooker. It is soooooo convenient!

Prepare an egg in small bowl, pour some hot sukiyaki soup to cook the egg.
That's my rice cooker sukiyaki with instant rice and half cook egg.

This took me less than half an hour to be ready.

IMG_20130709_182045I have just passed my first weekend in Japan. This time I am in Osaka. For my first shopping, I bought a lot of foods, not for one day, but for one week. Since this time I will at here for only 3 weeks, so I bought some to bring back to Malaysia too.

On Sunday, I bought a pack of sashimi for my dinner. 6 types of sashimi in a box. Although it is from hyper market, but all are very fresh. I like salmon and prawn the most.

Let's back to my last dinner before I came to Japan.

IMG_20130702_093122Coffee, has taken away my heart. Sometime it make me happy, sometime it make me high, but sometime it make my heart pumping at wrong frequency. I wish I can drink it everyday, with a set of toast spread with kaya, together with 2 half boil eggs without pepper and soy sauce, so I can have the pure egg taste, to welcome my day!
