Cotton Cheese Cake

I've had this in my old keeper for almost 10 years! Imagine that.

This cake is (i think) almost similar to some other cheesecakes that carry different names and may also differ slightly in the way it was prepared. It is very soft and not sweet.

(source: Mrs Lee of Kelantan)

A) 220 ml UHT milk ( i use dutchlady fullcream milk)
250 gm cream cheese, cubed
90 gm butter
1/2 tsp vanila/lemon zest

B) 20 gm cornflour } sift
40 gm pau flour (i used normal rose flour) }

C) 140 gm castor sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
6 egg white

D) 6 egg yolk - lightly beaten


  • Dissolve creamcheese and milk in double boil. When smooth (ie all cheese melt), add in butter and vanila. Leave aside to cool slightly.
  • Beat C till fluffy (not stiff). Add in dissolved cheese mixture. U can fold using hand or cake mixer at low speed.
  • Add in egg yolk.
  • Fold in sifted flour
  • Steam bake @ 160 C for 1 hour. I used 23 cm loose bottom cake pan, lightly greased.

When done, remove from cake pan and let cool completely. You can also glaze the top of cake or decorate anyway you like, but i prefer mine as it is.

maybe some sifu can tell me why my cake cracked up there?


  1. i'd prefer the cracked-top one any day, kalau perfect² rupa macam store made, tak syok laa

  2. Salam Kak..Nampak soft....sedap niiii...simpan resipi dulu...

  3. Betul KOG, that's home made, tp kalau berhajat nak bagi kat org, jenuhlah dok tanam bunga celah celah rekahan tu.

  4. Salam sue,
    Thanks for dropping by. Memang soft kek ni. Jangan simpan 10 tahun mcm makcik tau :))

  5. Eh bujal nak masak ke? Amik lah...bila dah buat nanti pos mai sini nak rasa

  6. betol kata KOG.. baru la nampak homemade.. kalau nak bagi kat org, sapu topping cream cheese+whipping cream pun ok kot...

    satu hari yg tenang, saya akan try this recipe... steam bake means kukuskah?

  7. cik lupark,

    ya itulah satu cara nak tutup lubang....

    Steam bake (ada org kata bain marie juga) is a baking method where the baking pan is placed in another larger pan half filled with water. To prevent water from entering the baking pan( sbb loose bottom), we often wrap half the baking pan with aluminium foil. Tapi makcik letak baking pan tu dalam satu bekas lain and then letakkan ia dalam satu lagi besar punya bekas berisi air. Oven heat will heat the water. Ini utk prevent cake (selalunya cheesecakes) from getting burnt/too dry.
    takpa bila nak buat, pi tgk balik n3 ni, i will link abt steam bake

  8. Hello MCKantin, this cake of yours masuk mulut nampak bulan naik early, ha ha. I guess it just melts in the mouth.
    Ada lagi? With iced coffee sedap best ni.

    Makcik, I'm giving a cake recipe, I very suka, bila makan you and family will get all shook up.
    It is Elvis Presley's favourite cake, cooked by his mom Gladys long go. Maybe when you not busy going to disco or doing the ronggeng or joget...
    boleh try.
    If you do, send me telegram, ya. I take the bus come over. Siap kan iced kopi. I'm not fussy, local kopi pun boleh, arhaaaa ha ha.


    3 cups granulated sugar
    1/2 pound butter, softened
    7 eggs, at room temperature
    3 cups cake flour, sifted twice, divided
    1 cup whipping cream
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

    Thoroughly cream together sugar and butter.
    Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Mix in half the flour, then the whipping cream , then the other half of the flour.

    Add vanilla extract. Pour batter into prepared pan. Set in a COLD oven and turn heat to 350 degrees F.

    Bake 60 to 70 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes.

    Remove from pan and cool thoroughly.
    Then invite Uncle Lee come for coffee.

    Best when preparing this is play an Elvis CD, wear sarong and then bake....
    The cake will get all shook up.
    Have a beautiful Sunday.

  24. aunty..kalo kte x gune oven tp gune periuk yg kukus tu leh x?

  25. Hi, thanks for the link back, just found out only today, LOL! To prevent the cracks on top, have you found the method? If not, hope this helps: usually cracks are caused by sudden drop of temperature. To prevent, best is to leave the oven door ajar (slightly) after the end of baking (turned off), keep the cake in it for another 40-60 min.
