  4. Stir in lemon juice and salt, mix well.
  5. Sift in cake flour and corn flour, fold until just combined. Set aside for later use.

hi lydia,
i didnt realise tht can bake japanese cotton cheesecake in muffin pan. They look so cute!! Did u line the muffin holes with silicon cups n bake bain marie? How long should we bake these cuppies for?


Lydia said...


I lined muffin tin with paper cupcake case and placed small tray of water on the lower rack. As for baking time, I baked about 20 to 25 minutes at 180degC.

Just a quick note, the cuppies wil be flat after cooled.

I tried the cup cakes version, but the surface of the cake craks and nothing like you picture at all- smooth and nice looking. Did I do something wrong?

Hi Ellen Yee,

Sorry I didn't get the comment notice. Well, your cake cracked maybe oven heat too high.

Thanks for trying out this recipe. You are welcome to post your cake photo on My Kitchen FB page to share with other members.

I'm just wondering would it deflate a lot after baking. Shouldn't I leave it in the oven to wait till it have cooled down before taking it out?


Lydia said...

This cake will deflate quite a lot (+/- 1/3). I would suggest you bake them in hard paper cups (card type) then you invert on rack to cool. This way, you can maintain both the volume and shape.

Leaving to cool in the oven will dry out the cake.
