Cheese Sponge Cake aka Traditional Pillow Cheesecake 奶酪海绵鸡蛋糕 [枕头蛋糕]

This pillow-like cheese sponge cake is similar to the Taiwanese Gochabi (古早味) Sponge Cake. I love the soft, light, moist and fluffy texture of this cake. Added cheese in the batter and layered in between gives a really nice aroma to the cake. However, the cheese layer only taste good when it's warm and melted, once the cake is completely cooled, the cheese layer will harden. If you're planning to serve this cake cooled or chilled, do omit the cheddar cheese layer. ;)

Method: 步骤

1.  Double boil (A) until butter and cheese melted. 

2. Remove from heat, the mixture should be warm, not hot. Add in yolk, one at a time, mix well with a whisk.

3. Sieve in flour, mix well. Do not over-mix the batter. 

4. In a stand mixer, beat egg white and cream of tartar until frothy, gradually beat in sugar. Continue to beat until firm peak. 

5. Fold egg white into yolk batter in 3 batches. 

6. Pour half of the batter into a lined baking tin (I use 12cm x 22cm rectangle tin). Gentle tap the baking tin on the worktop to release trapped air. 
蛋糕模铺油纸(我用的是12cm x 22cm 的吐司模)。把混合好的蛋糕糊倒入一半的份量。把蛋糕模轻轻在桌面敲几下,震出气泡。

7. Layer with cheddar cheese. Pour the remaining batter and smoothen the top with a spatula.

Water bath method:  put the filled baking pan in a larger pan and add some hot water in the larger pan.

8. Bake in a preheated oven 160'C for 90 minutes (water bath, 2nd rack from lowest). When it's done, open the oven door and let the cake sit in the oven for 2 minutes before removing the cake tin from oven. Transfer the cake on a cooling rack, peel off the baking sheet. Let it cool completely on the rack.
