Gaby's Bakery - Japanese Cheesecake

Gaby's Bakery - Japanese Cheesecake

I love quick and easy recipes and this isn’t one of them. But my Japanese Cheesecake is one of Michael’s favourites and as everyone has a little more time, I thought I’d share it.


Japanese Cheesecake
Not: Vegan, sugar nor gluten free, but delicious

This one’s a little more complicated but if it all comes together well, it just keeps rising into the lightest of cheesecakes and quite dramatic when served.

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

Method: Preheat oven to 160⁰C

Prepare a 20cm spring form cake by greasing and lining the tin with parchment paper. Place silver foil around the outside of the tin (to stop water going in*). Melt the cream cheese, butter and milk in a bain-marie. Cool the mixture, then fold in the flour, salt, corn flour, egg yolks and lemon juice mixing well.

Make the meringue by whisking the egg whites with the cream of tartar until foamy. Add the sugar and whisk until soft peaks form. Take 1/3 of the meringue mixture and fold into the cheese mixture, then another 1/3 and fold in again. Pour the mixture back into the remaining 1/3 of the egg mixture and fold in gently. Pour mixture into the prepared cake tin* and place in a water bath (set cake tin in a larger baking tray that is filled a few inches with water).

Place on the bottom shelf oven and bake for appx 1 hour and 10 mins or until golden on top. Once baked, leave the cake to cool in the oven with the door open as this will stop the cake shrinking or cracking on top.

Enjoy!

I've been making these for a few years now and they're super-quick and simple. The boys think they’re a great treat, and I know it’s a healthy alternative to biscuits, cake and bread - they'd scoff their way through a bakery if I let them. Use a good quality peanut butter without added sugar.

With Thanksgiving next week this recipe is a nod to our American friends. Although it's called a Boston cream pie, it's actually a cake that acquired its name when cakes and pies were cooked in the same pans, and the words were used interchangeably. It was created by
