Cotton Soft Japanese Cheesecake

December 9, 2007

Cheesecake is a sweet, cheese-based dessert. “Japanese-style cheesecake relies upon the emulsification of cornstarch and eggs to make a smooth flan-like texture and almost plasticine appearance.” (quoted from wiki) My evil twin, yani loves japanese cheesecake! So i decided to do some testing 1st b4 offering it to her~ *bow* hee~ made Aishi my guinea pig and apprentice! since she was at my place today, she helped me with the sieving of flour and also the folding of the mixture. (^.^ v) and also be the 1st to taste this! And indeed, it’s cotton soft (^^,) very light and soft… and it melts in your mouth. It is recommended that a thread should be used to cut this cake instead of using a knife. so that the slices stay in shape. 

 

Ingredients:
140g fine sugar
6 egg whites
6 egg yolks
¼ tsp cream of tartar
50g butter
250g cream cheese
100ml fresh milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
60g cake flour
20g corn flour
¼ tsp salt

Steps:

  1. Melt cream cheese, butter and milk over a double boiler. Cool the mixture.
  2. Fold in the flour, the corn flour, egg yolks, lemon juice and mix well.
  3. Whisk egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy. Add in the sugar and whisk until soft peaks form.
  4. Add the cheese mixture to the egg white mixture and mix well. Pour into a 8-inch round cake pan (Lightly grease and line the bottom and sides of the pan with greaseproof baking paper or parchment paper).
  5. Bake cheesecake in a water bath for 1 hour 10 minutes or until set and golden brown at 160 degrees C.

Water bath is 1 of the method to ensure even heating, therefore helping to keep the cheesecake from cracking during the baking process.

It was a fun Saturday evening~ =D since my parents are away on holis, aishi came over to accompany me, thanks girl! We had a great time messing, baking and cooking in the kitchen~ and doing treatment for our hair. XD *fling long soft hair around* She made me dinner! Wheee~ delicious HK style French toast. Yumilicious!I’m proud of her! seriously~ she don’t cook at home =X but she came over to cook for me!*yaya face* XD Yes, it’s a simple dish, but a very delicious dish too! nice crispy crust with maple syrup and butter topping *drool*

We had 3 different fillings,

  1. ham + cheese + tomato
  2. Kaya + cheese
  3. fragrant pear

yes, “WHAT! fragrant pear!” we are adventureous~ =X we ransack the fridge and decided to go fruity. hee~ therefore we attempted to make our own fragrant pear fillings apple pie filling style. XD


erm… somehow the both of us prefer the ham + cheese + tomato filling the best! =X savoury fillings match very well with the sweet outer crust *grin* the pulling cheese effect! *scream with joy* the cripsy crust with maple syrup and butter… the aroma of this combi rocks!
