Japanese Cheesecake – a light & fluffy, melt-in-mouth combination of a creamy tart cheesecake and a light & airy sponge. It’s rightly called a cotton cheesecake – a little pillow of joy on your plate!
The cheesecake was always on my list, but I never had the confidence nor the clear understanding of how a cheesecake works. I went through some videos and recipes online. Since this was my first shot, I wanted to not-attempt the full-blown cheesecake. I found one easy recipe for New York style individual cheesecake on ‘Joy of Baking’ website and modified it a bit to suit me. It made sense to make 6 cheesecake muffin to get the idea right before I go on to the other forms and varieties of cheesecakes – baked and unbaked. Typically a cheesecake takes a long time to bake, but these muffins took only about 25 minutes!!
