Coconut Soufflé Cheesecake with Caramel Pineapples


Spring has sprung & the winter has finally gone.
The sky was blue & the sun was bright while I was writing.
Sadly I didn't go outdoors but to bake in the kitchen.
After I baked a coconut soufflé cheesecake, I felt like something was missing.
I scanned through my recipe library for ideas & decided to make caramel pineapple to accompany the cheesecake.
It matches perfectly as coconut & pineapple always go together & the tropical flavours are the tastes for the summer to come :)


While we're enjoying the weather & food here, please make efforts to help people in need even though what we do from here maybe little, but every little effort can still be something.

Help now!

Recipe (6" square):
Coconut Soufflé Cheesecake
3 eggs, separated
300 g cream cheese
70 g sugar
90 g milk
40 g unsalted butter
3 tbsp plain flour
6 tbsp coconut milk flour

Grease & line a parchment paper on a 6" square pan, then wrap the outside with foil.
Preheat oven to 150C.
Melt butter using a microwave, add in the cream cheese & milk while it's hot, stir until smooth.
Add in the egg yolks, one at a time, stir until smooth.
Sift in the flours, mix well.
Whisk egg whites until foamy then add in sugar gradually, then whisk to soft peaks.
Add 1/3 egg whites into the cheese batter, fold in gently.
Add the remaining egg whites & fold gently until well combined.
Pour into the prepared pan & bake in a hot water bath for 45-50 min or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean & the top is golden brown.
Cool completely before refrigerating.

Caramel Pineapples
150 g chopped pineapples
50 g granulated sugar
3 tbsp Malibu rum
1 tbsp water

In a saucepan, caramelise the sugar then carefully add the rum & water on gentle heat, stir to dissolve the sugar.
Add in the chopped pineapples & cook to reduce the liquid until thick.

Assembling:
Cut cakes into 8 small pieces & serve with caramel pineapples.

  3. Coffeeteamix,

    Thanks for your comments :)

    I bought a bag of coconut milk powder from an oriental store in London.

    I think the alternative is to replace milk with coconut milk & use milk powder instead of coconut milk powder.

    Enjoy baking!
