LeTAO Double Fromage Cheesecake Recipe [ORIGINAL]

Recently my mum went to Japan and got a "cheesecake" as a souvenir. It tasted so good that I immediately wanted to recreate it so I can literally have it whenever I want.

After doing a few researches, I found that LeTAO is very generous in sharing their original recipe on youtube.  From the video, I gathered the recipe and started to whip it up. I used my observational skills to deduce the steps, cause I can't speak Japanese to save my life, so the steps might be a little different to the original one. You can still watch the video and compare the differences.

The outcome? Not "perfect" but good enough. If I were to remake this again. I would use my own recipe for the sponge cake and maybe test out cream cheeses from different brands and origins. The mascarpone mousse layer is perfect, definitely a keeper. I am surely going to incorporate into other different recipes to make something new from it.

It takes quite some time to make it as it consist of 3 layers but it is totally worth it and if you start early in the morning, by nightfall you can surely fully assemble the cake. It doesn't take long, it just have long wait times in between.

Try it out, we "translated" the original recipe and did a video for the english-speaking community. Cause I believe everyone should be able to enjoy it so we made the effort to minimize the extra hoops you have to jump through.

Vegan Milk Tea Recipe 3 Delicious Ways

We did a recipe on boba tea and although it is absolutely delicious, it is really rich and not that healthy. We always aim to give people choices to what they can try and today we are here to bring you 3 naturally vibrant and VEGAN milk tea for you!

We did it with no tapioca pearls this time but you totally can check out this post to learn how to make pearls from scratch. They are already vegan from the normal recipe so no tuning needed.

Disclaimer: We, ourselves, are not vegans. We don't judge anyones dietary choices, we give people options so once in a while we make vegan stuff.

Maybe just try out the teas first, if you enjoy it, you might just which it over to this "healthier" option.
*Healthier is in quotes because if you go overboard with sugar and full fat milks, well the healthy factor gets thrown out the window* lulz

Recipe time!!

FOOD HACK: Quick and Easy Chewy Nougat

Nougats are delicious but usually you buy it from the store because it is too tedious to do it yourself at home with dangerous hot sugar and a thermometer. 

Here to the rescue!! This recipe is another game changer. One more hack for you to add it to your repertoire. With 1 secret ingredient... Marshmallows!

Nougats are basically hot sugar and egg whites, the marshmallow takes care both of those elements.

I would not say this is can replace a traditional torrone in any way but this is a quick fix if you are just craving for a little chewy candy or if you are trying to impress some family and friends when you make them as little handmade edible gifts. So lets get to the recipe....

HACK: No Bake Brownies 3 Ways

We try not to disappoint with our recipes and we are not gonna lie, this trio is one of the great ones here. 

After our amazing game changer, the no bake stove top cheesecake, we are back at it again with another easy-to-do, no oven needed brownies! This time we are not showing one but three ways to make a no bake brownie from scratch!

Now you can make brownies anywhere, from your tiny dorm room to your office pantry even by the camp fire!  These brownies are rich and decadent, perfect pair with a cup of hot coffee in the morning, during snack time or even dessert at night after dinner.

Both microwaves and stovetops are great heat sources for cooking so why not a brownie? And for the refrigeration method....

Disclaimer here... the refrigeration method does not really make a real "brownie", it is a chocolate fudge mixed with nut flour and cracker crumbs to emulate the taste and texture of a brownie just enough to curb your cravings when you don't have an oven...

Now we have that out of the way... down to this fabulous recipe!
