This is something different from my favorite rich cheesecake that i always bake. From people who know me well, i always prefer rich cheesecake. The mild and cotton cake like texture is not my priotiry. It's just that i trust the recipe from Hsling so much that, i will give it a try.
To my surprise after first bite, the texture is SUPER SOFT like cotton! Even my children like it so...so much. You can taste the richness of eggs and it just like a sponge cake, with a little bit of savory flavour of cheddar cheese. It's a pity that the flavour of cream cheese is missing.... :(
As i never ever use cream of tartar in my baking before, i don't have it in my kitchen. I just substitute it with baking powder.
Afterall, there 's no disappointment for this recipe.
