Just These Ingredients! Souffle Cheesecake

Just These Ingredients! Souffle Cheesecake

It is so fluffy and delicious without heavy cream or sour cream! You can enjoy it right out of the oven or chilled.

Ingredients: 18 cm cake mold (springform)

Cream cheese
1 box (200~250 g)
Plain yogurt
1 pack (500 g)
Sugar
80 g
Eggs (separate into yolks and whites)
3 large
Cake flour
30 g

Steps

1. Drain the yogurt well using a cheesecloth on a strainer. Chill in the refrigerator if draining overnight.
2. Mix cream cheese, egg yolk, half of the sugar (40 g), and the strained yogurt in a food processor.
3. When smooth, add cake flower and mix for a little bit (do not mix too much).
4. Whisk the egg whites and the rest of the sugar on high. You can use a hand held mixer. Whisk until fluffy peak form.
5. Put the mixture from Step 3 into a bowl, and add 1/3 of meringue and mix with a spatula (try not to break the meringue).
6. Mix the rest of the meringue in two separate times just like Step 5.
7. Line the bottom and side of the mold with parchment paper.
8. Bake 45 minutes in a 160°C preheated oven. Use the steam function if available. If not, bake in a hot water bath.
9. When finished, check the doneness by inserting a skewer. It is ready if the skewer comes out clean. Bake for longer if batter still sticks on the skewer.
10. When cooled, take it out of the mold by inserting a knife along the side. Slice and enjoy!
