Pumpkin Light CheeseCake (南瓜轻乳酪蛋糕)

很久没烘乳酪蛋糕了。 很想吃就快快动手做了这个南瓜口味的。
A few days ago, the conversation started like....
Man: Mummy, we have not eaten a cheesecake for a long time?
Boy: Mummy, daddy is right, we have not had a cheesecake since !!!
Second boy: Make a pumpkin one.
Mum: Why make pumpkin one?
Second boy: Your LTU have been carrying 5 little pumpkins home since last two weeks.
Mum: ...LOL

Of course I quickly whipped up a PUMPKIN cheesecake..
The cake shrink quite a bit but it is still very delicious.
See the orangey little dots hiding in the is the pumpkin
Overall it a soft, fluffy and moist cheesecake with very very light taste of pumpkin.

Pumpkin Light CheeseCake
Recipe adapted from "Cake Talk (蛋糕密语) by Wendy Kor
Make a 7 inches square cake

125g cream cheese
30g butter
60g milk

3 egg yolks
50g mashed pumpkin
25g corn flour 
10g plain flour

3 egg whites
65g castor sugar 
1 tsp lemon juice 

To do:
  •  Preheat oven at 150c. Greased and lined the bottom of the cake tin.
  •  Mix cream cheese, milk and butter together, double boil until just melted. Let this cool a little before adding in yolk. One at a time mixing well after each addition. Stir in mashed pumpkin, corn flour and plain flour. Set aside. 
  • In a clean mixing bowl whisk egg white until it is foamy, add in lemon juice. Start adding sugar a little at a time beating until it is almost peak form. 
  • Fold  the meringue into yolk batter in 3 batch, do not overmix. 
  • Pour batter into the prepared cake tin. Bake cake in water bath for 55 minutes. Invert the cake once it is out from the oven. (this time i did not invert the cake maybe because i did not invert the cake the cake shrank and the top were wrinkle but it is taste very good =p )
