It’s easy to see why everyone is obsessing over Japanese cheesecake. The popular dessert is a lighter version of the real thing. It has a sponge cake that is less sweet and contains less calories than traditional cheesecake.
Japanese cheesecake also has a fluffier texture because it’s usually made by whipping the egg whites and egg yolks separately.
