Japanese Cheesecake


Received an "order" for a Cheesecake, those light Japanese version and I decided to take up the challenge as it has been a while since I baked a Japanese Cheesecake. The thoughts of mixing in Egg Whites deter me as I haven really been baking cakes much.

I googled and decide to try a new recipe from JustOneCookBook. Her Japanese recipe never fails me and always keep me happy after seeing my end product. Ha~

I followed the recipe exactly except that I mixed 40g Plain Flour + 40g Corn Flour instead of 80g Plain Flour and I omit Lemon juice as I kept forgetting to replenish them! Other than that, I took about 10 tablespoon of batter and mix with 1.5Tbsp of Cocoa powder. I wanted to drip small dots to make flower swirl to run thru skewer but I was too clumsy and end up piping all the batter onto the cake. So I jus swirl it big for marble effect!

End results? I think lemon juice should not be omitted. But the cocoa marbled effect really makes the cake taste yummy! Texture is so good! All packed to give away!
