Indonesian Cheesecake (Bolu Keju)


Got to know a fren thru some online shopping and we hit it off very well. Recently when I shared some if my bakes (thru whatsapp) and got to know that she have a sweet tooth and love pastries. Promised to bake her sometthing should we have a chance to meet up. A pity that she stay so far away if not we wld have companion for morning kopis at time. 

She told me that she missed a traditional indonesian cheesecake with a pic and I am clueless what is the name, where to find a recipe for it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ But being secretive, i do not want to ask her as I thought it would be a pleasant surprise should i managed to find it thru web. So I began my search and found out that its actually called Bolu Keju. 

The recipe uses creaming method which is similar to making a spongecake. Gosh! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ My enemy when it comes to baking as I failed many times using this method. Either my cake comes out hard, middle uncooked or any other appearances that fails. So am kinda worried. And day before the meetup, I was busy with some sort so I didnt have time to bake ahead. But I jumped the gun and decided to do it the morning before we meet.

I tried and surprisingly, the sponge looks good! And i added an additional 15g coco powder as she is craving for the cake in chocolate flavour. (I couldnt find 1 in chocolate) I quickly bring out remaining ingredients to prep for the cream, and need to grate th cheddar on my own as the ntuc near me doesnt have any grated cheddar. 

Finally assembled and hopefully the buttercream taste well as I do not have any magarine at home. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป It’s my first time assembling, grating the cheese and it was quite messy. But tastewise, I personally love it! And its my first time that my sponge looks good! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Pls try this recipe! You totally or should I say I have never seen this kind of cake being sold outside. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
