Pearl’s notes.

Her brother Shaun came back from England (also on exchange) today. He’s loud, boisterous, and loves hitting his sisters (in a somewhat friendly, you don’t need to call the police way)

Combine ingredients and knead for 30 minutes.

Place in bowl and let it rise for 25 minutes.

To make cheesecake, combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Throw them in a blender and add the wet ingredients. Blend. Pour into cake tin.

Apparently the Japanese family Pearl stayed with liked to press and fold the baking paper into the pan, as opposed to cutting out strips and shapes to fit.

Eve likes to help Pearl cook. All she does is pour the ingredients that Pearl measured out into a bowl.

The oven wasn’t hot enough, so Pearl cranked up the heat halfway. Resulting in this. A wet, sunken cheesecake. Wooh!
