When you saw something delicious and knew you could’t have it, what would you do? I would try to make it by myself. I saw this dessert on the internet. They say a convenience store chain in Japan is selling it. My copy looks like it, and tastes great!


Makes

6 servings

Ingredients

Matcha Cheesecake
250g Cream Cheese *softened
1/3 cup Sugar
3 Eggs *room temperature
1 cup Cream
1/2 cup Milk
1 tablespoon Brandy OR Rum
2 tablespoons Plain Flour
2 tablespoons Matcha Powder *sifted

Toppings
100ml Cream *whipped with 1 to 2 teaspoons Caster Sugar
Roasted Walnuts *coarsely chopped
Muscovado Syrup *see ‘Method 5’ below

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 160℃.
  2. Process all the cheesecake ingredients until smooth. If you don’t have food processor or blender, mix all ingredients very well using electric beater or hand mixer.
  3. Place 6 ramekins or serving cups in the roasting pan. Pour the mixture into the ramekins, then pour boiling water to the pan about 1cm deep.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes or until just set. Allow to cool completely. I recommend to chill in the fridge when cool enough.
  5. To make Muscovado Syrup, mix 2 tablespoons Muscovado (dark brown sugar) and 1 tablespoon Hot Water in a heat-proof bowl. Bring to the boil in the microwave and allow to cool. *Note: The syrup will thicken when it cools.
  6. Decorate the Cheesecake Dessert with whipped Cream, Walnuts and Muscovado Syrup.
