Here’s the Japanese cake spreading like wildfire on the internet – just wait until you see the 3 ingredients

There’s something about Japanese culture that has always fascinated me. Its strange dishes – different to most foods we eat in the west – is probably paramount in this respect.

With this particular recipe for Japanese cheesecake, however, I was sceptical at first. Most of us will have eaten cheesecake before, sure, but this is something different …

All in all, you need but three ingredients.

Sceptical I may have been, but one taste put an end to all of that. Its color – a bright yellow – drew me in, whilst the fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth texture stole me away.

I’ve quickly understood why food lovers the world over are hailing this crazy creation … one that’s since garnered some 11 million views on YouTube!

What you need:

3 eggs

120grams (4.3oz) white chocolate

120grams (4.3oz) cream cheese

What to do:

1: First, separate the eggs yolks from their whites in two different bowls. Place plastic foil over the bowl with the egg whites and place it in the refrigerator for later use.

3. Stir the chocolate until it has melted and then mix in the cream cheese. Remove the bowl from the pot and add the 3 egg yolks to the mixture.

4. Beat the eggs into the mixture until you’re left with a foam-like substance. It should be so thick that you can turn the bowl upside down without losing anything.

5. Now mix the egg whites in. Pour a little at a time, while stirring quickly in between.

9. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 170 degrees. Then bake at 160 for another 15 minutes. Finally, turn off the oven and allow the cake to bake for a further 15 minutes with the remaining heat.
