Japanese Cheesecake

Japanese Cheesecake aka Japanese Cotton Cheesecake - light, pillowy soft and fluffy texture. It's a combination between sponge and creamy cheesecake in both texture and taste. Not overly sweet, it's a perfect treat for one who love desserts.

The first time I baked this, I shared some with my neighbour. Few days later when I was about to ask her how she likes the cake, she came to me and asked 'Miki, do you own a bakery shop? Do you sell your cakes? the cake taste so good!'. That had made my day!

Take a closer look at the texture...
