Japanese Cotton Cheese Cake: Light, soft and easy!

 If I say that this cake is very easy, some of you might not believe me, ^^.


But it's the truth, because this recipe is a bit different from my former recipe and yes, it's a lot easier and needs less ingredient too. Anyway easier doesn't mean less delicious, it's very delicious (I can guarantee that). The difference is this cake contains corn starch, that act as stabilizer for the this souffle cheese cake, so the problem that the cake is not set properly is removed!. But the corn starch doesn't contains gluten, so the texture of the cake is still melting in your mouth.  
The most important thing that you have to pay attention to is the temperature of the oven, 170-180c, not higher than this or the top of the cake will crack like crazy.
After the cake becomes cool, refrigerate it overnight is recommended, because it's more delicious when cold and if you want serving it with fresh fruit (esp. berry) is a good choice too.
