Cheesy Weekend

My oven is working overtime this weekend.  I have lots of cheddar and mozzarella leftovers from the pizza project yesterday.  Once the package is opened, it does not take long for the cheese to turn moldy even if you keep it in an airtight container in the fridge.  The hot weather in Malaysia doesn't help at all!  Rather than risk it from going bad, I used them up today.  So for dinner, we had baked macaroni with cheese and for dessert, Cheddar Cheese Butter Cake.  Hmm, that's a lot of cheese for a meal!  My family and I love cheese, so, once in a while we don't mind getting a little bit too cheesy.

This is the first time I baked this cake and I liked it.  It has a soft texture with not too strong on the cheese.  It's just about right and the top is very crusty.  I will definitely bake this again whenever I have extra cheese from any of my kitchen project!
