Pressure Cooker Three Ingredient Japanese Cotton Cheesecake is a quick, light and easy cheesecake, using only three ingredients.
With the Cheesecake craze going on, and people messaging me about a Japanese “Cotton” Cheesecake, I just had to see what all the fuss was about and if I could convert the Japanese Cotton Cheesecake to the Pressure Cooker.
This recipe went viral when Chef Ochikeron brought it to the attention of the World, using just three ingredients.
This is Chef Ochikeron’s “Three Ingredient Japanese Cotton Cheesecake,” converted to the Pressure Cooker.
Eggs, White Chocolate and Cream Cheese, and that’s all she wrote.
The cream cheese needs to be at room temperature, so make sure you take it out of the refrigerator, first thing and place it on your counter.
Next thing is to separate the egg whites from the yolks, place the egg whites into the refrigerator and place the beaters from your mixer into the freezer.
Melting the chocolate is next. You guys know that white chocolate isn’t actually chocolate, right? It’s just a bunch of flavoring and oil, but, oh, how I love it.
Don’t use Hershey’s or Nestles and try to get a European, Australian, anything but US, chocolate bar. We just don’t have good chocolate in this Country.
If you have Grafiti Bands Cross Style, put one around your bowl, if not, use my method to make a homemade sling and lower the bowl into the Pressure Cooker and then place a paper towel on top. While the chocolate is melting………
Alternatively, you can melt the White Chocolate Bar in a double boiler on the stove top.
Grab the Beaters out of the freezer and whip the egg whites until Medium Hard Peaks form.
You should be able to lift up the beaters and see little peaks. If you turn the bowl over (like I am attempting to do, while attempting to take a really bad photo), the egg whites should stay in place and not move.
At that point, put the bowl of egg whites back into the refrigerator, until needed.
Add the melted white chocolate to your room temperature cream cheese and whisk it together well.
After mixing the melted white chocolate with the cream cheese, temper the egg yolks. This just means that you take some of the hot cream cheese mixture and add it to the eggs to bring them up to temperature without scrambling them and then add that to the warm mixture.
Whisk the egg yolks into the cream cheese mixture, so that it is nice and smooth.
Gently and I mean gently, incorporate the egg whites into the cream cheese mixture, one-third at a time until you have a nice and smooth batter. Don’t forget to scrape the sides to fold in the eggs.
After the egg whites have been incorporated into the cream cheese mixture, prepare your 6 inch cheesecake pan. I would not go any bigger than a 6 inch pan.
Slowly pour the cheesecake mixture into the prepared cheesecake pan.
It is cheap to make and you will find yourself using it all your Pot in Pot cooking.
Cut four slits in the Parchment Paper, so that you close the lid, it will protect the Pressure Cooker Three Ingredient Japanese Cotton Cheesecake from the condensation.
Completely cool the cake on a Baking Cooling Rack and then place into the refrigerator overnight.
Some people like putting an Apricot Glaze on the top and sides.
This Pressure Cooker Three Ingredient Japanese Cotton Cheesecake is very fluffy and light and is supposed to melt in your mouth, like cotton candy. I love blue cotton candy. I want some blue cotton candy.
