Chocolate Marble Cheesecake

Baked this cake for YL for her birthday. She actually wanted a strawberry cheesecake of don't know what sort which I don't have a recipe for. And she didn't have a picture of how the cake should look like. Thus in the end, she settled for this Chocolate Marble Cheesecake from my cheesecake recipe book - Junior's Cheesecake Cookbook

This cheesecake has a digestive biscuit crust which I laid the crust higher at the sides so that there was more biscuits to eat with the cheesecake.

Besides this cheesecake, I made dumplings for this Thursday dumpling festival - 端午节. This was of course with the help of my Mother-IL who did the cutting and cooking of the filling. Cooking the fillings is a lot of work having to cut up all the meat, and other ingredients are cooking them. The Hokkien dumplings needed more effort as each item had to be cooked seperately whereas the Nonya dumplings only needed to cook 1 filling which had all the ingredients in it.

There were quite a lot of ingredients for the Nonya dumpling left as we ran out of rice. So that means that we could do dumplings again pretty soon!
