Here I would like to share a cake recipe which I tested recently. I baked this cake just for my brother who always voluntereed himself to be the guinea pig for all my experiments in the kitchen. I trust his comments. He is the good criticizer who always give genuine comments on my cooking. I consider this recipe as the best ever for the Japanese Cheese Cake. Well, you can see the softness and sponginess of the cake in the above picture. Awsesome! All the credits goes to Pick Yin from her blog Little Teow Chew.
