How’s Tempura Cheesecake Different From Regular Cheesecake

Tempura cheesecake presents a quite different experience from a regular cheesecake. In simpler terms, they taste like warm cream puffs with steroids. Although the outside of tempura cheesecakes is crispy, the inside is creamy and soft. The sweet batter masks the cream cheese flavor, making them taste tangy, but not overwhelmingly cream-cheesy. When my resident cheesecake-hating ate a lot of them in a blink of an eye, I knew I was in for a treat!

7 Simple Steps To Make Tempura Cheesecake

Step 1

Cut the cheesecake into smaller pieces. You can make it easier to cut the cheesecake by placing it in the freezer for a few minutes.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or a deep pot until it reaches 340 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 3

Make the tempura batter by mixing the wheat flour, rice flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt in a container. Use a fork to combine the ingredients. Add the egg and cold soda water. Use the fork to combine the batter and make it lumpy.

Step 4

Drop a small amount of tempura batter in the oil to test the temperature.

Step 5

Dip the cheesecake pieces in the batter once the oil has reached the desired temperature. If you are using panko breadcrumbs, dip into it and carefully place them into the oil.

Step 6

Fry for about 5 to 7 minutes. Keep the batter chilled between batches of frying by placing it in the freezer. Crispier cheesecake bites will be made with cold batter.

Step 7

Place the fried cheesecake bites in a bowl and serve them with ice cream.
