WATCH: How to Make a Japanese-Style Cheesecake

Japanese-style cheesecakes are light, airy, and fluffy.

 

While you may be used to dense, creamy, and luxurious cheesecakes, Japanese cheesecakes are totally different. They are light, airy, and melt-in-your-mouth. Get this texture by whipping egg whites to soft peaks and carefully folding them into the cheese mixture. Pair this Japanese cheesecake with coffee or tea-it'll be the perfect midday snack.

4

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip egg whites with cream of tartar. Add remaining sugar gradually. Whip until soft peaks form.

 

5

Fold in 1/3 of the whipped egg whites into the cream cheese mixture, then fold in the remaining egg whites. Do this gently and gradually to prevent the whipped egg whites from deflating.

 

6

Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Place pan in a large rectangular baking pan with 2- to 3-inch-high sides. Pour hot water into the outer pan until halfway full. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until top is browned and cake looks set. Turn off heat.

 

7

Let cool inside oven until almost at room temperature. Chill overnight or at least 4 hours before serving.
