  1. Soak the gelatin in the cool water for about ten minutes or until the gelatin has softened.
  1. Beat the egg yolks with the 30 grams of caster sugar until the yolk is smooth and pale yellow. Sift the flour into the mix and whisk until well-combined. Pour the milk and cream in as well, stirring everything. Once everything is combined, put the mixture through a sieve and into a saucepan.

Pro-Tips to Follow:

Wantt to know more about making the Matcha cheesecake perfectly? Here are some pro tips to follow that can improve your baking skills and have a better outcome with the finished product!

– Ensure that everything is well-mixed but not overbeaten.

– Avoid dipping the ladyfingers for too long, or it will make the cake wet and shrink. If the ladyfingers don’t have milk, they will end up being too chewy after being left in the fridge for a long time.

– The cake will soften at high temperatures if left outside the fridge (over 30 degrees Celsius) so put it back in the fridge if you won’t be consuming it within an hour.

  1. hi thanks for sharing the recipe. I followed the recipe and got confused on step 7 when the recipe said to beat everything until soft and smooth. I didnt the question the recipe and proceeded to do so until I realized I had lost the purpose of having beaten the cream separately. I went back up to the recipe steps with pictures and there it said to fold the cream ibto the egg mixture until soft and smooth. big difference. I’m sure what I made will be edible but not quite what I’m expecting. still like the recipe but will remember to follow the non-printable version next time.

  2. Really great to know that it is so easy to make this. I have eaten one yummy cheesecake and since then I am really looking for a great recipe. I’ll surely try this!
