Matcha Japanese Souffle Cheesecake

Matcha goes well in a dessert- Almost any dessert. Matcha pancakes, Matcha ice cream, Matcha pudding, Matcha sweet, Matcha chocolate, Matcha Tarts, Matcha cheesecake and many more. Serious Matcha fanatic here. Pardon me.

And because of that. I decided to incorporate some Matcha into cheesecake.


Matcha Japanese Souffle Cheesecake ( Makes 1 round 5” cake) – *Matcha version of original



125g Philadelphia cream cheese
3 egg yolks (Each whole egg weighs 60g)
35g castor sugar
30g butter
50 ml milk
5g matcha powder
30g cake flour
10g cornflour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)

3 egg whites (Each whole egg weighs 60g)
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
35g castor sugar


1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C (Top and bottom heat, no fan force)

2. Spray 5in x 3in cake pan with non-stick spray, line bottom with baking paper

3. Whisk cream cheese till smooth over a warm water bath

4. Add egg yolks and whisk till combined

5. Add 70g sugar and whisk

6. Warm milk and butter over stove and add into batter

7. Add vanilla and salt and whisk till combined.

8. Remove from water bath, sift flour and matcha powder and fold into mixture

9. Whisk whites at low speed till foamy

10. Add cream of tartar and beat at high speed till bubbles become very small but still visible

11. Gradually add sugar and beat till just before soft peaks

12. Fold whites into batter 1/3 at a time

13. Pour into cake pan and tap the pan on the counter to release air bubbles

14. Baked the cake at 200 degree C for 8mins. After the 12min mark, I placed an aluminium foil quickly over the top of the cake to prevent it from browning too much and baked until the 1 min mark. Then I lowered the temperature to 160 deg C and baked another 18 mins more. After that switch off the oven and leave cake in for another 25 mins. After that open door slightly and let cake to cool 10 more mins. I find that the golden brown color of the cake was just nice. Feel free to experiment with your oven temperature. )
