Dear Jasmine,

I tried your recipe 3 times but only the first time turned out really well. The only difference I could tell is that I forgot to mix the egg white and the cream cheese mixture well the first time round but it was very fluffy and nice and I use Philadelphia brand instead of Anchor brand of cream cheese the second and third time.

Would you be able to tell me what do you do to the cake after it is baked? Invert after 10 minutes or immediately?

Thanks for sharing all your recipes.

Hi HY,

Sorry for the late reply. Hopes it wasn’t too late to reply u.
Usually the cream cheese and the egg white had to mix well incorporated but not over-mix them.

Ermm.. I don’t invert the cheesecake unless it chiffon type of cake. If you’re referring at removing from the cake tin, I usually remove the cheesecake from the tin after 5 – 10 minutes after t baked due to impatient.

But most cheesecakes are advice to wait till it cools before remove it from the tin.

Hi Jas:
I have just found your website lately.I really want to try out those wonderful recipes you posted,I will go with this Japanese cheesecake first. But I have one question to the recipe which is about the flour to be used. Is the superfine flour just simply all-purpose flour or self-rising flour?
