I love cakes especially simple ones that doesn't need any icing  and goes well with  tea or coffee.

  • First preheat oven at 150 degree C and put a tray of water below the level where you want to put the cakes.
  • Melt cheese with milk and oil in a double broiler, whisking until you get a smooth batter.
  • Beat egg yolks and the 80g of sugar until smooth and add lemon juice.
  • Slowly add cream cheese to the mixture.
  • Add corn flour using the lowest level of speed on the mixer until well combined.
  • Next beat up egg whites on high speed and add spoonfuls of the 120g castor sugar until you get a firm peak of the egg white.
  • Add ⅓ of the eggwhite batter into the cheese mixture and gently fold until combined. 
  • Repeat with another ⅓ until all is used up.
  • Scoop into cupcake papercups or use muffin cups like me as I have ran out of cupcakes papercups.
  • Fill batter almost to the brim.
  • Bake the cakes for 50 to 55 minutes (depending on the size of your cups) or until the cakes are nicely browned.
  • Remove from oven, take a few pictures for posting in blog if you like, and then dig in! ( that's just what I did, Jeannie :)
