Chocolate Cotton Cheesecake

Coming back home means I'll be busy in the kitchen again. Haha - I only have 1 more month to bake before I start my practicum. I must seize the restricted time left to do what I like the most. ;) Okay, less talking, here goes the hero of the day - Chocolate Cotton Cheese Cake

I personally have not tasted this type of cake before. It is a total new experience for me.

Chocolate Cotton Cheesecake 
Original recipe taken from: Stella Pang

130g cream cheese 
65g full cream milk 
30g butter 

4 egg yolks 

20g corn flour 
20g low protein flour/cake flour
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder 

4 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar 
60g white sugar (if you are making this for the elders, use 40g then) 

Chocolate chips 

Utensils Needed: 
6 inches non-removable baking tray with aluminium paper lining
Hand whisk for egg yolks
Electrical whisk for egg whites 
Tray which is big enough to fit the baking tray 

  1. Mix and stir well the mixture of A by using the double boiling method until smooth (cannot see any precipitate in the mixture). 
  2. Mix in B and stir well. 
  3. Sieve C and gradually mix into the cheese mixture slowly until it blended well. 
  4. Whisk the egg whites until bubbles are formed. Add in cream of tartar. Continue whisking and gradually add in sugar. Whisk until soft peaks are formed. 
  5. Pour mixture into the baking tray. Gently hit the corners of the tray to get rid of air bubbles. 
  6. Sprinkle some chocolate chips on top.  
  7. With water bath baking method, bake your cake at 150 degrees Celsius for about 60-70 minutes with up and bottom fire (fan-on). 
  8. Chill in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours and serve. It really tastes like cotton!! Haha - 
Do know that every oven's temperature setting is different and you have to regulate the baking time and temperature accordingly. 

Below are some images for illustration purpose.

Do take note of how soft peaks look like.

Study what is water bath baking before you start to bake a cheese cake.
I'm glad that all turned out well and smooth for my first attempt =)
