Cheesecake is not typically associated with Japanese cuisine, however the Asian dessert is a combination of the best aspects of a cheesecake and a souffle. Light and fluffy, this recipe for Japanese Cheesecake is lightly flavored with lemon for citrus twist perfect for summertime. The cheesecake will need to be baked in a water bath for the beautifully fluffy end result. Serve this cake with your favorite fruit topping or jam, chopped nuts, or drizzle with caramel or fudge sauce for a delicious dessert.
