Japanese Light Cheesecake


I was in the mood for cheesecake yesterday & I baked 2 cakes at one go! One for my precious darling fat cheeks & one for my dear friends. Fat cheeks loved the cake much and kept asking for more. Hope my friends will enjoy it as much as she did. The cake texture was soft, creamy & fluffy. It's not too sweet and the lemon juice adds a little tang to it. Next time I shall try the vanilla version.
.
Here's the recipe from The Ultimate Indulgence Cheesecake:

Ingredients:

- 400g fresh milk
