Another type of cheesecake
I don’t even know how to title it.
It has cream cheese in it.
It has white chocolate,
It has butter.
Yet it’s not exactly a cheesecake,
nor is it a buttercake,
and definitely not a blondie.
Oh, and did i mention that it was steamed, not baked?
But if i were to have a go at this cake,
I would say this is a cake between a sponge and a butter cake.
It’s light and soft, yet it’s “bulky”.
It’s sweet, but not sponge-cake sweet.
Its rich, but not buttery cake rich.
Oh well, whatever the case, i think it’s a pretty good cake, considering that it’s steamed.
Which brings me to another point.
Admist rising electrical bills (Having a baby really jacks up your bills!), and a full force electrical oven which drains 2200 watts each time i fire it, I decided that i should steam more often and bake less.
So here it is!
