As for kitchen equipment, we recommend buying from our go-to wholesaler, Sia Huat:

The biggest characteristic that sets the Boufé Classic Cheese Cake apart from the rest out there is the nice and even golden brown surface that is seemingly hard to achieve but will not be too difficult if you follow this recipe closely. You should also look out for the creamy and smooth texture as well as a little crunch from the digestive biscuit base.

Note: It may take sometime to achieve a cheese cake with no cracks at all because every oven is different, so experiment with yours to find the best results!

Using a K-Beater to mix the cream cheese and sugar at low speed.

Once well integrated, gradually add in the eggs. (DO NOT pour all at once or the mix will curdle) If you’re using a standing mixer, we recommend to scrape the bottom of the mixing bowl to prevent unmixed cream cheese.

Slowly add in the following: vanilla essence, yogurt, lemon juice and heavy whipping cream.

Pour the cream cheese mix in to the 8inch cake tin.

Place the cake tin on a tray/insert with water(steam bake) and bake.
