Tofu Cheese Cake

Had a second cooking party with my foodie friends.
Since I have a looooooot of tofu, the theme of the party was TOFU this time!
I made tofu gyoza and tofu cheese cake.
I baked tofu cheese cake before using real cheese, but this time, I tried to make it with sake lees as a sub for cheese. As I wrote it before, sake lees taste and smell like cheese when mixed with oil and salt.

For the filling

1pk tofu
3/4cup coconut milk
4tbs sake lees
1/2 banana
1tsp plum vinegar
3tbs sugar
1tbs miso
2tbs lemon juice
1/2tsp cinnamon
1.5tbs agave
1tsp vanilla extract
★1tsp agar powder
★2tbs almond meal
★1tbs potato starch

For the crust

4tbs pancake mix
4tbs walnut
4tbs rolled oat
2tbs potato starch
2tbs strawberry jam
1tbs soy milk


To prepare the filling, wrap your drained tofu in a few paper towels.Press with something heavy for about 3 hours.
First, mix agar with almond meal and potato starch(★), and then mix all the ingredients well with a blender. Let it cool over a night. (sake lees make it ferment and taste more like cheese)

To prepare the crust,preheat oven to 350F(180C).
Mix together walnut and oat with a blender.
Combine other ingredients in the blender and mix.
Press mixture into the bottom of a cake mould.
Bake for about 15mins.
Put 1tbs honey(or agave, maple syrup)on the crust, which makes the crust crunchy.
Pour the filling into the crust and bake in a preheated oven for about 45mins.
Let it cool and then chill in a refrigerator for about 3hours.
