Cotton Soft Japanese Cheesecake

This lovely moist spongy cheesecake recipe is from MyResipi by Alma. I made it many times before and made it for charity sale recently. The original recipe is plain color but I marbled it with chocolate mixture.

250g Cream Cheese
50g Butter
100ml Fresh Milk
6 Egg Yolk
1 tbsp Lemon Juice (I skipped becoz I don't like lemon smell)
¼ tsp Salt
60g Superfine Flour
20g Cornflour
140g Sugar
6 Egg White
¼ tsp Cream of Tartar

1. Double boil cream cheese, butter & milk.
Stir until smooth.
Once cooled, mix in flour, cornflour, egg yolk, salt, lemon juice.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk egg white with Cream of Tartar until foamy.
Add in sugar gradually & whisk until stiff.
Add in the first mixture.

3. Pour mixture into a lined 8" diameter tin.
For marble effect take a bowl of mixture & add 2 tbsp cocoa powder.
Pour chocolate mixture alternately with the plain mixture & marble it.
Bake with water bath 160C for an hour.
(I baked mine in microwave oven using cake function).


  1. Salam. Came here fr Zue's. I love this kinda cheese cake since its light. Thanks you for putting the recipe but may i know what is superfine flour? can i just use regular all purpose flour?


  2. Hi Farina. All purpose flour may not give you the same texture as it is heavy and the cake will sink after baking. Superfine flour is the same kind used to make sponge/chiffon cake. It is also called Hongkong/cake/sponge flour.

  3. Salam Roz...i use to bake in microwave oven as i don't have any other oven.Did u use water bath baking in yr microwave oven for this recipe?


  4. Salam's me again. I want to make a cheese cake for my hubby who loves cheese cake so much.
    Right now i only have 1 stick of cream cheese in fridge.Which one tastes nicer..yr Japanese Cotton or Surabaya Cheese Butter? Of course, next time I'm gonna try the other recipe.

  5. Zai,
    Wsalam. Both are very different in taste & texture. This one is lighter & more cheesy and it depends on one's preference. For beginner, Surabaya Cheese Butter cake has more success chance. I always advise beginners to be careful with recipe using whisked egg whites because it requires certain technique i.e. you must ensure egg whites are whisked until stiff & folding in with technique. You can check Youtube for demonstration.

  6. Salam, kak.
