Japanese Cotton Cheesecake - Bake With Paws. Much thanks to my friend Mandy for introducing me to this recipe. She is great at baking and her results inspire me a lot. You may see her recipe shared on Rasa Malaysia. This is the 7th cake I have been baked so far and 5 out of 7 were cracked even though I followed every instruction and tip. Finally, I think I’ve figured out the culprit. It is because of the meringue, whisk until soft peaks form only as below picture. Ingredients: 140g/5 oz. fine granulated sugar 6 egg whites 6 egg yolks 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 50g/2 oz. unsalted butter 250g/9 oz. cream cheese 100 ml/3 fluid oz. fresh milk 1 tablespoon lemon juice 60g/2 oz. cake flour /superfine flour 20g/1 oz. cornflour (cornstarch) 1/4 teaspoon salt Method: Melt cream cheese, butter and milk over a double boiler.
Notes: I used 9-inch non-stick spring form round cake pan and lined the bottom with grease-proof baking paper or parchment paper.
