Japanese Jiggly Cake – Light Cheesecake

japanese jiggly cake

Jiggly cotton cheesecake, sometimes referred to as Japanese jiggly cake or light cheesecake, is a soft, elegant, airy, and delicious cake. It is great served up with some whipped cream or ice cream. Believe me, your family and friends will love it.

There are a few suggestions and alterations to making this cake. Firstly, a spring form pan makes the execution of the cake much easier. If you do not have one, any round 6 inch pan will suffice. Just be sure that you use the parchment paper and spray the sides well.

You can use any brand of cream cheese. I always use Philadelphia cream cheese as it is one of my favourites. Two percent milk and unsalted butter are best for the mixture.

When separating the egg whites from the yolks, be sure not to get any yolks in with the whites as they will not whip properly. To separate them, you can use your hands, the shells, or an egg separator. Also, make sure the eggs are at room temperature.

The vanilla extract is optional, but I find it adds some additional flavour to the cake. You can use lemon zest too if you like.

It is also important to note that when whipping the egg whites, they need to get to the point of stiff peaks. You will know they are stiff peaks when they stick to the paddles and hold their positions.

The water bath is important in the baking process. Make sure that the water is very hot when adding it to the tray in the oven.

  10. Line the bottom and sides with some parchment paper. Make sure the parchment paper is double the size around the edges to allow the cake to rise.
