Bernie makes The Wildwood Brownies!

Made these brownies over the weekend, they are not wild, and they are definitely not made in the woods! Frankly, I don’t even know why they were named that, but I baked them after my last assignment on Monday and then got lazy to type a post on it till now. Heck, its exam period now and I’m writing/editing this post! =/

Bernie makes Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake!

Semester 1 of my Final Year has been hectic, so many MANY assignments to do and with only 3 weeks left to the end of semester!

So, my exams have come and gone, so what’s a girl to do with holidays in her mind right now??

Bake(!!), make ice-cream, watch game-plays of survivor horror games on Youtube and go out on merry outings with her friends!

What’s creamy, tangy and smooth with a crunchy base? A Cheesecake of course! Made with a lovely cream cheese from the local cheese shop in Victoria Market (Curds and Whey).

I used to make a white chocolate cheesecake which had so much white chocolate that I refused to eat it, much to the delight of my brothers. So I decided to look around for another cheesecake recipe which was not too sweet yet tangy for my taste buds (I don’t like freeze cheesecakes, so that’s out of the question). That was when my mum stumbled upon a Stephanie Alexander recipe for baked cheesecake on one of those weekend magazines that came along with the newspapers a long time ago.
