This cake is extremely light and fluffly! Despite using condensed milk as one of the main ingredients, it is not too sweet at all! Again, the texture is to die for!
3 egg yolks
50g condensed milk
50g plain flour - sieved
100g cream cheese (increased to 130g for a stronger flavour)
35ml canola oil
1 tsp lemon juice (to enhance flavour)
1 tsp lemon juice (to enhance flavour)

1 tsp lemon juice

4. Mix yolks, 1 egg and condensed milk until well combined. Set aside.
5. Heat oil over stove. Once done, drizzle over sieved flour and quickly mix to a smooth paste. Set aside.
6. Pour yolk mixture into the cream cheese, mix well, then add in flour mixture, whisk until well combined. Set aside.
7. Beat egg whites untill foamy, add in lemon juice, then add sugar in 3 batches. Continue beating until attain stiff peak.
8. Fold in meringue to the yolk mixture by several batches. Be sure to fold till you don't see any streaks of meringue.

Can I use full cream milk insteadReplyDelete
I'm sorry but i have not tried with full cream milk before so i can't guve you a definate answer....Delete
can i replace canola oil with olive oil or butter?ReplyDelete
I find that olive oil has a distintive taste, so i would prefer to replace with melted butter.Delete
I tried both with melted butter and olive oil. Melted butter cannot form smooth paste, it will be lumpy. With Olive oil it is ok.. have you tried with butter before?Delete
I did once, no issue..Delete
If i'm going to use butter, how many gr shld i use to replace the 35ml oil? Also, after 105 mins of baking, take the cake out quicky invert it? Or can i leave it few minutes in the oven to cool it down? ThanksDelete
will also be around 35g. I invert the cake immediately when the cake is done.Delete
Can I replace castor sugar with normal white sugar ?ReplyDelete
Beside castor sugar, you can also use fine or granulated white sugar.Delete
Hi, do u use sweetened or u sweetened condensed milk? Thanks :)ReplyDelete
I used sweetened ones :)Delete
Which is better to use for this recipe? Spreadable cream cheese or the cream cheese block?ReplyDelete
cream cheese block will gives a better and firmer texture.Delete
I find it difficult to beat the egg white till foamy. And i use a hand whisk! Could u help? Just some tips maybe?ReplyDelete
Firstly, you need to be sure there is no water or oil in the mixing bowl or whisk, because meringue would not formed with even the minimum stains of it. And there should also not be any stains of yolks inside the egg whites. I usually use a mixer to beat the whites and it prob takes me ard 5min to form the meringue. Using hand whisk will definately takes a longer time....Delete
Thank u so much! Will give a try!Delete
Does the cream cheese have to be at room temp?ReplyDelete
Hi just wan to clarify..The original recipie out 35g corn oil.. but u put 35ml canola oil.. so issit in grams or in mls?ReplyDelete

Hi! If I have a 12-inch round tin do I just double the ingredients?ReplyDelete
I doubled the ingredients for an 8" and there are still batters left, so i guess it should works for 12" :)Delete
Hi, I would like to check if I can bake this in rice cooker that have cake function?ReplyDelete
I'm sorry but I cannot give you a definite answer as I did not try making in a ricecooker before. But you need to note that the cake will only works by waterbath method. Without it, the cake will crack like mad. I've baking it with airfryer and it boomed like a huat kueh!Delete
Hi, if I were to make into cupcakes do I still have to put in water bath?ReplyDelete
Yes, still need to. Put all the muffin cases in a tray, then the tray into the tin for waterbath. Bake at 150C for 30minReplyDelete
Do we have to reduce the temp also?Delete
Keeping at 150C is fine, just shorten the baking time to 30min.Delete
Hi. Can I ask what is waterbath ?ReplyDelete
Hi Denise, this article gives a detailed description :)Delete
Tired the recipe, taste is wonderful but prefer stronger cheese, can I jusy increae the cream cheese and the other ingredient remains the same qty?ReplyDelete
Glad that you like the taste :) to be honest, i have not try increasing the cheese quantity, but i guess you can :)Delete
Hi just to confirm, total baking time is about 1.5hours?ReplyDelete
Total is 1h 50min. 150C for 30min then 130C for 75min.Delete
Hi, 50g condensed milk does that means 50ml?ReplyDelete
Yup, almost the sameDelete
Hi, I actually baked twice but it turned out soft and not golden brown. :(Delete
Seems to me it's underbaked.Delete
Does this cake have to be refrigerated ? Or can it be kept at room temperature ? Thanks !ReplyDelete
Refrigerate after it cools completely :)Delete
may I know why do we have to bake at 2 temperatures? What should I see at the 30min mark?ReplyDelete
I reckon the first 30mins is to set the cake structure and the final phase is cook the cake. Cheese cakes are usually very sensitive to temperature so cannot bake at high temp for too long.. But I have seen people baking this cake at 150C for 80mins, but personally, I have yet to try at this temp & timing..Delete
how long is the baking duration for 8in?ReplyDelete
how long did you bake for a 8in cake? thanks!ReplyDelete
Just tried a new baking timing and temp for 8". 170C for 20mins then 160C for 40minsDelete
Tried the recipe today, like the taste very much, thanks so much. It's my first cake ! Just need to try it again as it didn't raise high.ReplyDelete
How do you melt the cheese ? My cheese seem to dry out insteaf of melting..ReplyDelete
By double boiling. Heat up a pot of water over high flame, once it started boiling, lower down to low flame and put the mixing bowl with cream cheese over it. Then stir over it for a min, remove from the pot and continue stirring. If the cheese stip melting, put it back over the pot to get the heat. Repeat until cheese melts.Delete
The top of the cake turned out burnt. Is it because the temp of the oven is too high? How long do I have to preheat the oven at 150c?ReplyDelete

Each oven is different, do you have an oven thermometer to measure the actual temp? Preheat 10-15min before baking.Delete
How much is this 6inch cake pls ?
