Tofu and Soya Bean Cheese Cake (8 x 8 inch)
Recipe by Phoon Huat
- 5 egg yolks
- 3 egg whites
- Brown sugar 80 g
- Soya bean powder 30 g
- Top flour 40 g
- Unsalted butter, melted 30 g (I substituted with 30 g of oil)
- Whisk egg whites till fluffy, add in sugar and beat until doubled in volume and stiff.
- Add in egg yolks and beat till just mixed in.
- Fold in flour gently and in one direction using a spoon or whisk.
- Fold in oil gently in one direction using a spoon or whisk till everything is well mixed in.
- Pour into a 9 inch baking tin which is lined at the bottom.
- Bake at 190 Celsius for 12-15 minutes till a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- When it is ready, remove the cake from the baking tin and allow to cool down on a cooling rack. Cover the cake to prevent it from drying out.
- When the cake is cooled, place an 8 inch square cake ring onto the cake and trim off the excess cake outside the ring. This will help the cake fit snugly into the ring so that the tofu cheese layer does not seep through. Place the cake ring with the cake inside on a serving tray. You can also use a baking tin with a removable base, but make sure the cake fits the size of the baking tin.
- Cream cheese, softened at room temperature 230 g
- Caster sugar 70 g
- Smooth silken tofu 230 g
- Sour cream or yoghurt 50 g
- Soya bean powder 30 g
Beat cream cheese and sugar on high speed for 3 minutes. Add in tofu, yoghurt and soya bean powder and beat on high speed for another 4 to 5 minutes.
- Diary whipping cream 50 g
Whip the diary whipping cream till stiff and place in refrigerator until you need it.
- Soya bean milk 100 g (Another option is to use 30 g of soya bean powder and mix with enough water to get 100 g of soya bean milk)
- Gelatine 15 g
Double boil soya bean milk and gelatine over a water bath till the gelatine is completely dissolved.
Combine Group A, B and C ingredients and mix well. Pour the mixture onto of the cake layer in the cake ring. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours till the tofu cheese layer is set. Sprinkle with soya bean power and cut into squares to serve (I added some green tea powder into the soya bean powder for colour).
Hi Mich, I've been eyeing on this recipe for awhile & I would love to try it out to support October LTU that you'll be hosting soon. Any tips to share & another thing is I can't find soyabean powder.
