Cheesecake for daaays: Your Customized Cheesecake

It all started with my mom talking about a cheesecake that her friend was raving about. A few years back, my friends and I were trying to find the best cheesecake made and I ultimately ended up choosing Cake2Go for their delicious Devil's Food Cheesecake. My second choice was Don Limone's which has since closed down like all underrated restaurants in the south. New branches built are far from home now.

A few months ago, this got my interest since it was supposedly customizable cheesecake dipped in ice cream; but all we had to go with was this blurry photo from my mom's friend because she couldn't remember the name of the place.


After days of looking around and asking our friends what could be written in that logo, we were able to find a link to the video where the screenshot was taken. https://www.facebook.com/cassalucoffeeandkitchen/videos/2102256396658825/?hc_location=ufi

Eventually, we found it as "Bakeology" from Cassalu. A far cry from Sambokojin (haha) …

Baking Lemon Cake with a Pressure Cooker


Over the last weekend, I’ve experimented on baking. So far, so good. Beginner baking can be pretty easy with just two things, a mixer and a pressure cooker. Ovens still scare me a little. (Unevenly cooked mush -_-) Pressure cookers are great even if you don’t see what’s going on inside, it comes out perfectly baked.

Got good feedback on this cake, so I figured I would share the recipe.

Ingredients:

Cake
250 Grams of softened butter (room temperature)
1 1/3 Cup of sugar
2 Cups of self raising flour
4 Eggs
1/2 Teaspoon of baking powder
1 to 2 Tablespoons squeezed lemon juice (Depends on how zesty you want it to be. I prefer in between)
1/2 Cup of milk
1/4 Cup vegetable oil (To moisten cake. Cake is already moist with the above ingredients. I prefer it a bit more moist)

Frosting
250 Grams of softened butter (room temperature)
1 1/2 Cups confectionery sugar (sifted)
1 teaspoon lemon flavor
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor


What to do:

Cake
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl using mixer. Brush container in pressure cooker with butter or vegetable oil before putting the mix in. Press “Cake” on your pressure cooker and wait for the magic. Once done, cool cake down to room temperature.

Frosting
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl using a mixer until your preferred texture is achieved.

Final steps
[Watch video above] Cut cake in the middle(horizontal -_-) and spread some frosting in the middle. Place the upper part of the cake back and spread frosting around the entire cake.


Happy eating!
