3. How long should I beat the egg white before add in sugar ?
4. How many pandan leaves shall I cut  ? ( I cut 10 pieces ) . How much water to be added in order to make a concentrate pandan juice  ? ( 150ml water ) I need only 70 ml  concentrate pandan leaves after it subside for the next day .)

It Is Not A Perfect Coffee Marble Cheesecake :(

This coffee marble cheesecake is not the perfect one as I have added too much flour ( 2 tbsp corn flour + 2 tbsp all purpose flour ) in 500 g of cream cheese and 3 eggs.
So , it is too hard after keeping in the fridge the next day.
And , I made the pastry base instead of using crushed digestive biscuits.
I will  make a " better" one later and will share the recipe with you "if " it is successful :)
