How to make the fluffiest Japanese cheesecake:
Japanese cheesecake is much different from the popular American cheesecake. It is light-weight, fluffy, not too sweet, and without a crust. Let’s cut the chase and move straight to the recipe that you are looking for:
What do you need:
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup cream cheese
- 6 egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons castor sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 and a 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 6 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 and a 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
How to make it:
- Take a saucepan and add butter and cream cheese to it. Also add milk to it and cook it over medium heat until everything melts and mixes well.
- After it is done, transfer the mixture to a bowl and let it cool down.
- Once the mixture cools down completely, add one yolk at a time while mixing it in an extremely gentle motion.
- After that, add sugar into the bowl and whisk it.
- When the sugar is mixed properly, add vanilla extract and then lemon juice to it.
- Then you can add the dry ingredients one by one while sieving them. The dry ingredients include flour, baking powder, and cornstarch.
- Next is the turn of egg whites. Using a hand blender or stand mixer, blend the egg whites until they turn into a foamy consistency.
- Add 6 tablespoons of sugar while blending the egg whites.
- Once sugar is completely mixed with egg whites, you can add this to the cheesecake mixture. Mix it very gently to avoid deflating the egg whites.
- You can transfer the mixer to an 8 inches pan. Using a water bath, you can ensure there are no cracks.
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and then bake the cake for 40 minutes.
- After that, you can unmould it, and your cake is ready to be served. You can also serve it with strawberries.
