Okara Cheesecake in the Microwave

Okara Cheesecake in the Microwave

You can make this moist and spongy cheese
cake with processed cheese. It's so delicious that it's hard to believe there's okara inside. It's a quick "bake" in the microwave.

Ingredients: the size of 1 carton of milk (1 L or 1 quart)

Fresh okara
150 g
Pancake mix
50 g
Processed cheese
50 to 60 g
1 medium
200 g
3 tablespoons
Lemon juice
1 tablespoon


1. Mix together the okara and pancake mix.
2. Heat milk, sugar, and finely chopped cheese in a pot. Melt the cheese without bringing it to a boil.
3. Turn the heat off when the cheese melts. When it's slightly cooled, add egg and stir.
4. Combine and mix the dry ingredients (Step 1) and liquid ingredients (Step 3). Add lemon juice. Pour into a microwave-safe mould and microwave at 500 W for 15 minutes. *If you feel that the milk has evaporated and reduced (Step 2), feel free to add more milk.
5. [Tips:] It's better to remove from the mould after it's slightly cooled. Chill in the fridge for best results.
6. [A Variation with Different Measurements:] 150 g okara and 150 g pancake mix. Bake in 180°C (356°F) oven for 30 minutes. With these ingredients, it'll rise a lot. It's fluffier than the regular version, but higher in calories.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love Cookpad user akiaki-san's [Okara Steamed Bread with a Rice Cooker or Microwave]. I came up with this when I was playing around with her recipe. I also referred to another Cookpad user's cheesecake recipe for hints as well.
