And so Kpo Kia mama decided that once or twice failure will not stop her from messing up the kitchen. She is feeling adventurous and decided to try out the 3-Ingredient Soufflé Cheesecake that was widely shared Facebook:

You can get the recipe from the youtube page. For convenience of those who would like to view the recipe easily, I have copied it below!

3-Ingredient Soufflé Cheesecake
Estimated Time: 1hr
Number of Servings: 6
Calories per Serving: 230Kcal

Necessary Equipment:

  • 15cm (6inch) round cake pan
  • electric mixer

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 120g (4.3oz.) white chocolate
  • 120g (4.3oz.) cream cheese *softened

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F). Separate the eggs and place the whites in a large bowl. Let your egg whites sit in the refrigerator to keep them cold until you are ready to use them (which makes the meringue more stable).
  2. Place the chocolate (broken into pieces) in a large bowl. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over hot water (60C/140F). Then add the cream cheese and melt them together. Remove the bowl from the double boiler, add the egg yolks, and mix well.
  3. In a large bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until firm peaks form. *If it’s thick enough, you can turn the bowl upside down without it sliding out.
  4. Add 1/3 Meringue into the cream cheese batter and blend well with a spatula. Then add the rest of the Meringue 1/2 at a time and mix well.
  5. Rub some oil/butter on parchment paper (in this way, the cake can slide down when it shrinks, so you can prevent the cake from cracking). Line the round cake pan with the parchment paper. Pour the batter into the pan and drop the pan lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter.
  6. Place the cake pan on a baking sheet. Pour some hot water into the baking sheet. Bake at 170C (338F) for 15 minutes, 160C (320F) for 15 minutes, then stop the heat and bake with the remaining heat for 15 minutes.
  7. When it is done, place the cake pan on a wire rack to cool completely.

You can either serve immediately or chill in the fridge before serving! It will slightly get hard in the fridge, so leave at room temperature for a few minutes before you serve.

Haha, since for some reason, I can’t find the Meiji White Chocolate in the nearby supermart, I ended up with milk chocolate. Some friends thought the cake ends up brownish because it’s burnt~ LOL

My not so successful first attempt at the cheese cake, made from scratch (previous attempt are all trying out on pre-packed cake mix:

After baking for 15 mins and 15mins, and 15mins and another few more 15mins, it still looks… unbaked! Look too moist to me!
