Hi, was talking to a friend some time ago and was wondering about cheesecake using gula melaka. Any suggestion for a recipe?

Hi Jennifer,

Sorry, I'm not sure. Maybe you can look for this recipe book 'The Ultimate Indulgence Cheesecake' by Alan Kok, it has some interesting cheesecake recipe.

Thank you for sharing the receipe. I try to follow but it seems my cake looks rather flat? I wonder is it due to the temperature that I should set lower as it is not those big build in oven?

Hi Anonymous,

I'm using a table top oven too, mine is not those big build in oven. If your cake turn out soft and spongy I don't think you should bother about the height of it.
