Marble Chocolate Cheddar Cheese Cake 云石车打芝士蛋糕

Whenever i have extra cheddar cheese , sure remind me to bake a favourite Light cheddar cheese cake . But this time, added cocoa powder and create the marble effect, still taste very good!




The extra cheddar cheese was leftover after made this cake for my son to bring it to school.

So happy to have a no shrink and crack cake!

This cake is bake using steam bake method (place water underneath but not directly contact to water) but not waterbath method. First bake at lower heat then increase heat to bake till cooked. Anyway, next time i will try with normal baking method, i suspect also can work this way.

Marble Chocolate Cheddar Cheese Cake 云石车打芝士蛋糕
*makes a 8" round pan or square pan

120g cheddar cheese
100g butter ( salted or unsalted)
100g fresh milk
6 egg yolks (large or A size)
100g cake flour


6 egg whites (large or A size)
100g caster sugar

15g unsweetened cocoa powder mix with 4tbsp hot water

Method
1. Place butter and tear up cheddar cheese slices in a bowl over a pot of simmering water, take a spatula and stir to melt, then add in milk and stir until all melted and mixed together. Set aside to cool slightly before use.
2. Lightly whisk the egg yolks in another mixing bowl. Ladle big spoonful of the cheese mixture into the egg yolks. Mix well and then add in the rest and combine well.
3. Sift in the cake flour into the egg yolk mixture and make sure no lumps.
4. Preheat the oven to 130C with a steam bake (I place a medium pan that filled with hot water then place the pan underneath). Line the bottom, grease and dust with flour for the sides of a removable bottom baking pan.
5. In another mixing bowl, beat egg white till foamy. Gradually add in sugar and beat till stiff peaks or at least close to stiff.
6. Use a whisk, mix 1/3 of egg white mixture with cheese mixture, mix to combine and till light.
7. Gently fold in the balance egg white mixture with a spatula, mix well. Remove 300g of plain batter, and mix with cocoa powder, fold to mix well.
8. Spoon the two batters, plain and chocolate, alternately into cake pan. Using a butter knife or chopstick, gently swirl it around the mixture to create marble effect. Tap the cake pan to remove any air bubbles.
9. Bake the cake in the oven at 130C for 45mins ( lower 2nd level from bottom) , increase temp to 150C for 25mis, or till the tester comes out clean. Every oven is different , please adjust accordingly to your oven.
10. Remove the cake from oven and place it on a wire rack. As soon as you see the cake is slightly leave the sides of the pan and cake still warm, remove the cake from the pan as to minimize cake shrinkage, continue to cool on wire rack.
