Baked Cotton Cheese Cake 棉花芝士蛋糕

Many of us love cheese cakes, does not matter how it was prepared, and know very well that the high calories in all cheese products. Most of us cant resist the temptation of it. But friend remember this ' one moment on your lips, forever on your hips" When that happen, don't blame me! Haha.....

I always prefer cake to be plain without those cream, icing. Cream and icing decoration are too troublesome and not healthy too, this give very good reasons to be lazy.

The original recipe is just a plain cheesecake, but some how this time around, thinking making some swirl to the cake. Hmmmm....... the swirling not that perfect, but still quite nice orh! Some of my FB friends like to know how to swirl a cake, I have took some photos, most of them are blur, left 2, hope these will be able to give some guidance on how it is done. But trust me practice make perfect, your swirl of cake will come easy as ABC in no time. Happy trying! 

You may refer to my new Japanese Green Tea Cotton Cheesecake for if you love green tea like me!   

If the cake is taller, I am sure it will looked gorgeous. Ehhemm......
What a waste. Sign.....

Instead of a taller cheesecake, I mistakenly used the 8 inch cake pan, so here I am with 2 shorty cheesecake. End result for the cake is smooth and soft that mattered most. Hope next time won't be so careless.
6 egg yolks

Beaten egg white

Swirling of Cake - Spoon some plain cheese cake batter and mix with some cocoa powder, put into piping bag and pipe the cocoa batter in circular forms as shown in the photo.

Use a chopstick to drag the batter from the edge to the center to create the pattern. Do you get the idea? Please let me know, by leaving some comment. Thanks guys!
