Simple 3 ingredients ~ Japanese Cotton cheesecake

I came across this simple Japanese Cotton cheesecake by ochikeron some time back. The recipe was so simple that you only need 3 ingredient. Since this is a small cake, I decided to make 2 cakes with 2 flavors (White Chocolate & Dark Chocolate).  Let start baking it!

White Chocolate & Dark Chocolate Cotton Cheesecake...Yum
Will AGEE prefer this White Chocolate Japanese Cotton Cheesecake?
Or AGEE prefer this Dark Chocolate Japanese Cotton cheesecake?


Japanese Cotton Cheesecake
Adapt recipe from Ochikeron -For better understanding, do view the video.
(For 6 inches non removal cake tin)

Things needed:-


  • 125g of cream cheese (Soften cut into cubes)
  • 120g of white chocolate chips/bar
  • 3 large cold eggs
Steps 





**Preheat the oven till 170C
  1. Place your white chocolate on a big stainless steel bowl and melt your white chocolate chips under hot water (Double boiling method). 
  2.  Add in the Cream cheese into the melted white chocolate mixture and mix well till it is well combined.
  3. Separate the egg yolks & egg whites. 
  4. Add in the 3 egg yolks into the batter and mix well. Set aside and prepare the Meringue.
  5. On a clean bowl, add in your 3 eggs whites and use a electric whisk and beat till firm peak form.
  6. Look at picture 9, I had tested that the meringue is ready as when I do the turn over test. (Try at your own risk)
  7. Add in 1/3 of the meringue into the batter and fold in slowly using a spatula till it is well combined.
  8. Add in 1/2 of the meringue into the batter and fold in slowly using a spatula till it is well combined.
  9. Lastly add in the remaining meringue into the batter and fold in till it is well combined. I prefer to use a whisk to fold in. Individual preference.
  10. Pour the batter into the cake tin. (Remember to lay the baking sheet for the cake tin.)
  11. Place the cake tin into a baking tray, pour in some hot water onto the baking tray and put into the oven. This is water bath baking to prepare the cheesecake from cracking. 
  12. Bake the cake for 15mins under 170C then reduce the temperature to 160C to bake for another 15mins. Lastly, off the power but continue to let it bake inside the oven for another 15mins.
  13. Once baking is done, transfer the baking tin on a wire rack and let it cool down completely.
  14. Sprinkle some icing sugar (optional) onto the cake and it is ready to serve!
TAGlicious's Note
** For Dark chocolate version, steps are the same. Just replace the amt of white chocolate to dark chocolate.  
** If you are using a removable tin, do remember to use aluminium foil to wrap your cake tin to avoid water sip into your tin during water bath baking.
** I chilled the cheesecake overnight before serving as we prefer to serve the cheesecake cold.

White chocolate Japanese Cotton Cheesecake is the winner!
Verdict: we can't really taste the cheese in Dark chocolate cheesecake, it taste more
more like a chocolate cake. . 

Hope you like my sharing today! Do give it a try.

  2. Oh i just made these! Instead of baking separately, i combine both to make it like a marbled cheesecake! My whole family loves the taste! The choc part tastes chocolatey and can even taste the cheese in the choc part. The texture of the cake is so soft but slightly fudgy which we all love! One of the best taste cake i hv ever made! This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you Grace for sharing this!

    5. This is what's wrong with this country everyone is offended by what he said or she said move on lets all just get along, and if you don't like what how a recipe or someone says something just move on. Stop letting little things like this get to you. We have to take down monument because of the persons name and what they did, well if it weren't for some of the things those people did would everyone in the USA be who we are today? Be glad you don't live in Russia those poor people in Ukraine or if you don't like it here you can always move?

  3. While scrolling through your recipe, it was jarring to read the recipe title “Jap Cotton Cheesecake.” “Jap” is a culturally offensive carry over term from World War 2, one that I am particularly sensitive to since my father was a Japanese Canadian during that period of history. I respectfully request that you rename the recipe “Japanese Cotton Cheesecake.” I’m sure you had no idea how the other title may be triggering for some readers. Thank you.

    3. I agree, Jap is derogatory. Should be removed.

    4. Everything is offensive to someone, even if it has more than one meaning or just an acronym with absolutely no reference to the person’s claimed offence of choice, my grandfather was shot by a particular race and it took me many years to stop my mother treating all by the horror and sadness she felt. Different generations different triggers, I don’t think the writer meant any more than to abbreviate to fit a space. Make the cake, eat the cake, enjoy the cake and move on or not

    6. I’m in the UK and repeatedly get called a Brit or if they went off my surname I would be called Indian. I don’t get offended by either. Life’s too short and too precious to argue silly little things. If I know I’ve upset anyone I would apologise and not do it again

    8. I was jarred to see the offensive name in such a lovely place. Not a Karen and it is often an equivalent to calling a black person the “n” word. I think not doing that is just being a kind person.

    9. s the word jap is offensive, it triggers a lot of memories, good and bad. for me it's particularly jarring, as my uncle was a prisoner in Japan, shot, tortured, in the Battan Death March, scarred for life. so yes remove it please.

    10. If people spent as much time trying to find ways to unite people, as they do looking for ways to divide people, they’d find time to take a nap! …and perhaps stop acting like grumpy toddlers! For Heaven’s sake! Get your eyes off of yourself! Stop looking for things that you can complain about! And as for those who take such strong offense, the least you can do is identify yourself, rather than hiding behind “unanimous”. That simply screams’ “coward”. Do you think that no one notices? They do. But they don’t pay attention to what you want them to. Learn from this, it would behoove you to do so.

    11. Are you stupid crazy!! What about Amish bread , Hillbilly recipes, German recipes , and more! These are recipes from our cooking history! This really pisses me off. You probably don't even cook! Get over yourself, and don't make it.!

    12. Thank you for bringing that up. Jap is a deregatory term and is not comparable to the words German, Amish or Hillbilly. Comparing those words shows a lack of understanding.

    13. It seems these commenters are the ‘’so called Karen’s’’ that’s the problem everyone takes offense to everything and excepts nothing no cares about anyone or anything except their own feelings and most of those kind of people are childish immature and probably not highly intelligent so now I’ve said my opinion just wait and count the rebuttals that are to come back as people just handle the truth!!!

    19. I agree with the objection. There seems to be a misunderstanding here. The comment speaks against the use of the term "Jap" (which appers midway through article) not the use of the title Japanese Cotton Cheesecake. Big difference. The word "Jap" has historically been used as a derogatory term to Japanese citizens.

    24. DISGUSTING THAT YOU DONT RECOGNIZE THE RACISM INHERENT IN THE FLIPPENT USE of SHORTENED NAMES OF FOODS when the actual name is a legitimate descriptor!!! NO One is changing history...Aunt Jemima is gone from the pancake batter mix too. Just use the formal name of the cake. This site has some pretty nasty comebacks. It's a formal public discussion. some courtesy should be extended. If it's not meant to be offensive the onus is on YOU NOT TO OFFEND....in Florida there is no longer a requirement for a permit for that gun in anyone's pocket....Those babies are taken by the border patrol under the "cheezy's" watch

    2. Woild you feel the same if someone put the N , or C or S word or another derogatory word. I cannot believe how callous and uncaring some people are. Yes it is a recipe but the comment is offensive. It is simple for those that have yet to face personal racism to be critical .... once you've been subjected to racism you will change your tunes. It is simple for the author to address the issue.

      Delete
    3. Exactly! It's derogatory and offensive, but I'm sure no offense was intended by the author. They should quietly learn from their mistake and rename the recipe. As for those who say we are "too sensitive" or "politically correct," you have no right to tell someone who feels disrespected and insulted by a comment that they "shouldn't feel that way." One does not choose to feel a certain way, and to be told they shouldn't only adds to the insult.

      Delete
    4. I couldn't agree more!! When every little thing offends you stay off the internet. I'm not telling you to "not feel that way" I'm just saying your right to not be offended is not in the constitution, My right to freedom of speech is. Don't go away mad just go away :)

    11. SERIOUSLY………….One of my favorite restaurants in my neighborhood is a Japanese restaurant. Am I allowed to call it that anymore? I go there all the time to eat Japanese food. Am I allowed to call it that anymore!? Oh, and by the way, the restaurant is run by my Japanese neighbors. They are proud of their heritage as I am my of my heritage. I certainly don’t get offended by German chocolate cake or Irish coffee or a French pastry. As you can tell, I’m a bit of a “mutt” French, German, and Irish, I am! But I’m a proud mutt!!
      This poor woman was just trying to share a recipe that I’m sure she didn’t name! We have to stop letting words offend us so quickly! You can call me whenever you want I could care less. It’s just a word! I tend to observe people’s actions, or in actions in life! What kind of person are you? Are you an evil soul or are you a good person? That’s what I focus on!

    12. Funny, my dad used to call Brazil Nuts 'n' toes. He had blk friends. He slapped the taste out of my brother's mouth for calling said friend's kids the 'n' word while playing when we were small...we didn't know because we'd heard others use it without the context of hate behind it. Did that make it right??
      The word Keffir (I'm not sure of the spelling) I'm told was also used in a derogatory manner towards blk folks but is less known as such. I was horrified to know I'd said it so casually while looking for lillies to add to my garden. No one told me to stop but I don't like saying it anymore. Am I only to be judged by others and not hold myself accountable? Because I truly felt bad for saying it even in ignorance.
      I don't know, Sometimes I get annoyed at the young folks these days when they get offended over pronouns and think it's, 'too much' BUT my own nephew is of that age and if he asked me to do something then, I will because I love him and those actions speak just as loudly, whatever my personal opinions.
      I don't go to church but I try to be KIND to others as I would have them be kind to me. At the end of the day whatever my opinions are on this, I guess everyone will just be the person they can live with but I hope we all remember our own attitudes when the time comes when WE feel something is important in the face of indifference and casual cruelty.
      also to note, im not singling you out, you seem reasonable and not mean spirited so I just thought to strike up a conversation, that's all, I hope thus finds you well.

  11. If you check any dictionary you will find that the word Jap is derogatory. Of course I do not believe the poster intended offence at all and used the word innocently. But we should show kindness in how we deal with people who are offended by a remark whether it was intended to hurt or not. If we know something is hurtful and continue To do it then it would appear the offence is intentional. There’s never any harm in being kind and listening and adjusting Our speech to help somebody. It seems a small thing to do that costs little and yet who of you would refuse to hesitate to jump into the water to save a drowning person or pull someone from a fire?

  25. I read the comments because I wanted to know how people experienced the recipe - instead I got a political lesson. Yes, we should be gracious and sensitive: how about being caring to the person who took the time to share this (clearly someone to whom Engli is not a first language)? SINCE when is caring a one-way thing?? There are better ways to point out that something you intended innocently might be offensive to some. Speaking from experience. The response to the recipe show ignorance and self-righteousnous rather than any desire to help. Saddening.

    ReplyDelete
  34. So, I also wanted to see how many people made and liked the recipe.
    Apparently, that was not the case because some people weren’t paying attention. This woman shared & posted this recipe in 2014. Then an unknown person got offended & posted her statement in 2018. Then a blow-up of comments in 2022. Yes someone got offended, but did anybody really look at the name of the recipe. It does say Japanese in most of the description and the word Jap once. Common sense tells you that lady who submitted the recipe obviously abbreviated it cause it wouldn’t fit & wasn’t done to offend anyone.
    And just a little info for some, Jap is also a term of mild contempt, used (most often by Jewish people themselves) to refer to a young Jewish female who is spoiled or indulged. In its reference to a certain stereotype, the word has anti-Semitic and sexist overtones. Everyone of every religion or race has insults & racism no matter what. Everyone will experience an offensive or derogatory comment in life, but it’s your choice to whether or not you make it define you.
    I’ve had my share of racism or mean comments towards me, but I choose not to get offended. You can’t fix stupid and I have better things to do. If someone tries to put you down just remember it’s only because they are ugly on the inside and miserable about their life, so they think insulting makes them feel better.
    So, let’s just stop and make the recipe. Everyone be kind to one another and stay blessed, happy and healthy. ☺️πŸ™☺️

  35. Did anyone care to notice? If you click on about us at the top of the page, the woman whom submitted the recipe is Asian. She posted a picture of herself with her family. My guess is that she might be Japanese herself.

  36. I can't believe people are bullying someone who (correctly) points out an offensive item.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Isn't this an example that PC divides rather than United? Words comfort or hurt based on the intentions of the sender and receiver. As a racial minority, I don’t feel putting down by the author’s use of “jap” here, or assume she meant to hurt by her choice of word. Word policing shifts the focus away from the real racism. There will always be some people feeling offended by other people for something sometimes. My advice to these people is no one can make you a victim unless you let them to. Don't be crucified on small crosses, and you will be much happier.

  38. If you are in the public eye you open yourself to criticism. Having Japanese relatives I appreciate your changing the title. It is good to acknowledge when even accidentally we have offended people. It is called good manners.

  40. Hi, May I know what size pan please? Is it a 6 inch? Thank you.

  41. People, the author DID NOT name the cake. Google “Jap Cake”. It’s history comes from a French school of baking. Get off of your high horse & your research before you open your mouth.

  48. We are becoming a nation of cry babies. Back to the recipe - I love when a recipe is very simple but makes a very fancy presentation.

  52. Iti’s, Brits and many others are simply short forms of those names, neither offensive or racial. WOPS (without papers) was once a in common use to describe primarily Italian immigrants and is highly offensive.. The term Japs was always a racial slur against Japanese, just as Chinks was always a racial slur against the Chinese.The history of Japanese internment in Canada and the U.S. is an ugly one. Those of you who think it doesn’t matter what a cake is called are demonstrating a lack of knowledge of how racism can develop and have no understanding of how it affects others. For white Americans among you..... do you like being called Whitey... a derogatory term other groups use to describe you? How about I publish a recipe for “whitey” cake? For Americans....how offensive is it to be called a Jap? Just as offensive as calling an Asian cake a Slant cake.

  53. She called it Japanese cake 6 times previously.

  54. I live in KY, I have Irish,Indian,German ancestors... it's sad that society is so weak!! You can't even publish a recipe without someone being offended?!! Get off the internet, stop watching television! Do something productive with yourself, instead of causing conflict and confusion! I can be called a " Hillbilly " all day everyday and I do not care! Grow a backbone... come to the hills and mountains!! They will toughen you people up real quick!! Now, I'm gonna make my JAPANESE COTTON CAKE!!!

  56. People please! All that is going on here is the sharing of recipes. Please don’t go off track. EVERYONE knows that this unique dessert is originally from Japan, where the people born there are called Japanese. If you look at her written title above, you can see that this 8 letter word would not fit, so she simply shortened it! There is no underlying, offensive meaning to it. 3 letters fit in where 8 couldn’t. It’s as simple as that. Happy baking people!

    ReplyDelete
  57. This looks like a great recipe, but I'll never be able to make it without thinking of this darling Japanese mother whose feelings many of you are hurting. This has obviously been going on for years. She had no idea what a fire storm was going to erupt when she posted it. The English language sucks: give her the benefit of the doubt and post about your experience with this recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am eager to try this since it has no added sugar, even though I’m not skilled at folding in meringue. As to the controversy over the name, someone make a polite request to adjust the title. Who knows if her parents or grandparents were put in internment camps? The responses attacking her are far uglier than her initial request.

    2. Agree ! My dad grew up on an Indian reservation,my mother is German. You can call me squaw,ingun,half breed,hitlers child,nazi etc... It really doesn't matter to me. I'm secure with who I am. When you have complete peace from within and God's love,stupid things like what a person wants to call a cake doesn't matter to you. This is so ridiculous,you are getting offended by what someone has called a cake.WOW!
      I think we can agree there's a lot of things in life we all will take offense to at some time or another,but sometimes you gotta say,well I don't like it but someone does,so it's their prerogative,and move on. Done

  60. What does “n” stand for. And what does PC stand for? I don’t see that in the recipe?

    ReplyDelete
  61. LP INGRAM Please take note: This is NOT a sugar-free recipe. No sugar is in the ingredient list, but chocolate - white, milk, or dark - has plenty of sugar in it. You can buy chocolate totally without sweeteners, like baking chocolate, which is quite bitter. And you can buy sugar-free chocolate. But, please don't go shopping, pick up a regular package of toll house-style chocolate chips, make a Japanese Cotton Cheese Cake, then think it is sugar-free because it doesn't include sugar as a separate ingredient.

  66. This recipe looks delicious! Thank you for providing a clear recipe to create this beautiful dessert!
    I’m sorry that you ended up being slammed by so many comments. There seems to be a lot of emotion in them with little substance. I’d like to briefly explain why the term Jap is offensive.
    When Pearl Harbor was bombed, the U.S. government decided that U.S. citizens of Japanese decent were a security risk. Entire families were rounded up (Particularly on the west coast), and put in ‘detention’ camps. One of these is a National Historic Landmark near Lone Pine, California. All of their assets were taken from them. Where I live, one of the biggest farming families, Tanimura, were able to give their assets to their business partner, Antle, until this awful experience was over. They still exist as a large grower of veggies. Throughout the country, people of Japanese ancestry, whether or not they were born here, were considered the enemy. They were called Japs.
    There are several beautiful novels about this period. One is Snow Falling on Cedars, by David Guterson, another is The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende. Recently there have been a lot of hate crimes against people of Asian decent, so I think that a negative term that brings up this kind of history is especially jarring. Please try to walk a mile in these shoes.

  67. Calling it "Jap cake" is officially an ethnic slur. It's offensive. Look it up. It's shocking how many people are hopelessly ignorant. I won't be able to make this cake after reading all of the nasty, ignorant, truly ignorant, comments.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Eesh.. sorry but Jap is absolutely offensive and no it’s not anywhere near the same as Jew as in Jewish or Brit as in British.. I don’t know who in the world would not know this really.. unless you never took US history? Which I took in 1997.. to use this term is actually uncool and makes you look very ignorant.. Tell you what.. go to a bar and use the word Jap.. let me know how that turns out for you..

    ReplyDelete
  69. This is such a stupid argument. Jap is just a shortened word for Japanese.. just like Australians get called Aussies.. new Zealanders get called kiwis and English get called pommes.. just names shortened.. life is too short to take offends to every little thing...I hope everyone here has a beautiful day x

  73. I love to bake and love..love..love cheesecake and I can't wait to make this.
    What size cake pan do I use? And for all of you out there...maybe we should just call it "politically incorrect cheesecake recipe" and get over yourselves.
    Kind of silly and very childish but that is exactly what the media is trying to do
    separate us. Don't let them. I'm of Italian decent and we as a group were called "Waps". Can't you silly people just stop it already! It's a baking website for heaven's sake.

  74. Been reading all these comments and how crazy has the world gotten. I don’t think there was any disrespect meant here at all. Funnily, what come to mind as I’m a Brit, is a dessert we have in the UK called “Spotted Dick”. I’ve never seen a man called Richard get his knickers in a twist over it.

  75. There's more comments about an abbreviation than the recipe. Most people would have never noticed Now if she called them a Slope that would be another thing
    Get a life and stop fueling division.

  76. You have to be kidding, you really took the time to ask them to change the name? Absolutely ridiculous, don’t make it go to a different recipe come on people like you are what’s wrong with this country. I can’t believe this. Offended over the name of a recipe.. Good Lord!
