Recipe : Marble Soft Cheese Cake06:23
What can I say , this cheese cake is fluffy like clouds, cottony soft like pillow, light as feathers, and not dense. I love cheesecake but the ones that you get at the store is too heavy. But this cheese cake is very light to the tummy, less butter, not too sweet with a subtle hint of salty taste. It was not so cheesy too but you can still feel the milky-ness in it. Relatively suitable for people who don't very fancy cheesecake. It's really soft, and tasted best when chilled in the fridge. Since it does not use baking powder, the cake rises mainly by using egg whites that are whipped till stiff giving it a lot of air. This cake will be listed in what-cakes-to-bake-for-raya list ;p
