Heat milk, sugar, and finely chopped cheese in a pot. Melt the cheese without bringing it to a boil.
Turn the heat off when the cheese melts. When it's slightly cooled, add egg and stir.
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.
[Tips:] It's better to remove from the mould after it's slightly cooled. Chill in the fridge for best results.
[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.
*Use processed cheese of the non-melting type. Some varieties (Mini Babybel cheese, sliced cheese, etc...) are harder to melt, but I mix it into the dough even if it's not completely melted. *If you boil the milk too much, it'll evaporate and eventually reduce, so try to keep an eye on it. Add more milk if necessary. (Refer to the photo in Step 4 for how it's supposed to look like.) *This recipe uses the minimum amount of sugar, so please adjust to your liking.
