Cream Puff

Setelah sekian lama tidak membakar, kini hasil pertama dari dapur baru Smiley ialah Cream Puff 50 biji yang ditempah oleh kawan lama Smiley di SAMER dulu, Hafizah.

Ini kali ketiga beliau menempah, dimana 2 tempahan sebelum ini terpaksa ditolak atas sebab tak dapat dielakkan. Memang kali ini rezeki dia, sebab malam tadi rumah saya langsung tada air, so saya dah inform awal-awal takut tak dapat buat. Alhamdulillah, mungkin rezeki dia, lepas subuh pagi tadi, saya bangun air dah ada. Jadi, saya pon buat le cecepat sementara anak daraku yang menyusu itu tidur.
Terima kasih Fizah ;)
Eh, nak tengok dapur Smiley ker? meh le jenguk sini.

Cheesecake baking pan

Hello everybody,

It has been a very long time since the last time I update this blog. I miss baking very much! My baking activity is currently 'on long holiday' since the kitchen is under a major rennovation.

I don't want to leave this blog in gloomy. So today, I just to share a short for those cheesecake lovers who is planning to bake your own cheesecake.

The first basic tool , you must have a a springform pan. In basic, it consist of two parts: a circular flat bottom, and a side formed in a circle.

There are 2 types of cheesecake pans I ever known so far:

Type 1: Cheesecake pans with Removable Bottom.
This pan are made from heavy aluminum with a removable bottom. This is ideal for the easy release of cheesecakes or cakes whose crumb crusts are difficult to remove.

Type 2 : Nonstick cheesecake pan made with a tight sealing high quality clamp. The bottom fits into the side, the side is then locked, and the pan has a top and bottom. When unlocked, the side opens and the bottom (and the cheesecake) can be removed.

You can find the pans in all baking supplies shop like Bagus and Bake with Yen.

Now, you have known with these 2 types of pan. So, which one to use?

Based on my experience, using the Type 1 pan is better than the non stick springform pan I have ever used. Guaranteed! These pans are covered under a lifetime guarantee against rusting, chipping, flaking, warping, and more! I can also remove either the baked or no baked cheesecake easily! What a peace of mind when the time to pack the cheesecake has come. I miss baking!!.

Hope this info benefit you all. Happy Baking! Any question just send email to
