Soufflé Cheesecake Made with Sliced Cheese

No need for cream cheese, heavy cream, or butter It's a low-calorie and low-cost cheesecake It's soft and fluffy.

Ingredients: 15 cm diameter cake pan

Sliced cheese (non-melting type)
3 slices
Milk
120 ml
Eggs
2
Cake flour
30 g
Sugar
40 g
Lemon juice
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Add the milk, and small pieces of torn up cheese into a small saucepan. Heat it up over medium-low heat until right before it starts to boil. When the cheese has melted, mix well with a wooden spatula. Let the mixture cool down.
2. Separate the egg yolks and egg whites.
3. Add the egg whites, 1/2 of the sugar into a bowl, and whip into a firm meringue.
4. Add the egg yolks and the remaining sugar into a separate bowl, and mix with a whisk. Add the Step 1 mixture, and mix well.
5. Sift the cake flour into the Step 4 bowl, and mix well with the whisk. Add the lemon juice as well, and mix well.
6. Add 1/3 of the Step 3 meringue into the Step 5 bowl, and mix well with the whisk. Add the remaining meringue, and mix well with a spatula.
7. Pour the batter into a cake pan lined with parchment paper.
8. Place it in a baking sheet filled with hot water in the preheated oven, and bake for about 50 minutes at 160℃. Cover with aluminium foil halfway through so that it won't get burned.
9. If you don't mix the mixture really well during Step 6, it will separate into 2 layers, so please be careful.
10. If you are using a cake pan with removable bottom, the hot water will come into the pan while steam-baking in a water bath during Step 8, so please cover the bottom with aluminium foil and bake.
