Cheesecake Journey : Testing the Perfect Rice Cooker Mango Cheesecake

My journey to create the perfect Rice Cooker Mango Cheesecake was filled with alot of trials, even more errors, and a lot of learning. Here’s a breakdown of the five rounds of testing that led to the perfect rice cooker mango cheesecake:

Round 1: The Liquid Mess

For my first attempt, I followed a recipe I found on the internet, cooking it at high pressure steam. Unfortunately, this was a complete disaster. When I flipped the rice cooker pot, a liquid mess came out. Clearly, this was a major fail!

Round 2: Too Dense

In the second round, I used a recipe from the Cuckoo America website. However, this recipe was intended for a multi-cooker and resulted in a cheesecake that was far too dense. While it was an improvement from the first try, it still wasn’t what I was looking for.

Round 3: A Promising Success

For my third try, I adapted Kat Lieu’s recipe for Matcha Japanese Cheesecake by substituting mango puree for the lemon or yuzu juice and matcha. I used the non-pressure steaming setting for 40 minutes, and it turned out awesome. This was a significant breakthrough! However, my attempt to make whipped cream to accompany it failed as it overheated, I overwhipped it,  and it turned to butter! Whoops. (insert embarrassed emoji here, lol.)

Round 4: The Exploding Boba Cheesecake

Determined to perfect the recipe, I decided to make a Mango Boba Cheesecake with stabilized whipped cream. I experimented with two types of boba: one from a boba tea kit and the other made from scratch. I used the second type and put it in the cake, but all the boba fell to the bottom of the pot, preventing the heat from spreading through the rice cooker. This caused the cheesecake to explode through the steam release, creating a huge mess. Additionally, my efforts to make stabilized whipped cream with gelatin and another try with cream cheese resulted in butter again, and when I added more cream, it turned into liquid that wouldn’t whip up. That’s frustration there for yu!

Round 5: Light and Fluffy Perfection

Finally, after many trials, I achieved the perfect light and fluffy Rice Cooker Mango Cheesecake. The key was in gently folding whipped egg whites into the batter to maintain its airy texture. This cheesecake had a delicious cream cheese flavor, with the mango adding sweetness and color both inside and on top as a beautiful garnish.

Each round taught me valuable lessons and brought me closer to the perfect recipe. So, I did the work, so you don’t have to!

What's the secret?

The secret to this Rice Cooker Mango Japanese Cheesecake is non-pressure steaming and perfectly whipped egg whites. Let’s get started!

  • Light and Airy: The secret is in the whipped egg whites, making it incredibly fluffy.

About Mangoes and Alternatives 🥭

Why Champagne Mangoes

I chose Champagne mangoes for this recipe because of their exceptionally sweet and creamy texture. They add a delightful tropical flavor that perfectly complements the light and airy Japanese cheesecake. Plus, their vibrant color makes the cheesecake visually appealing. Champagne mangoes, also known as Ataulfo mangoes, have a smooth texture and a rich, sweet taste that enhances the overall dessert experience.

Types of Mangoes You Can Use

If you can’t find Champagne mangoes, don’t worry! You can substitute them with other types of mangoes like Haden, Kent, or Tommy Atkins mangoes. Each variety has its own unique flavor and texture, so feel free to experiment to find your favorite. For more information on different types of mangoes, check out this guide to mango varieties.

Ingredients for the Rice Cooker Mango Cheesecake set in small glass bowls on top of a variety of white, light blue, and dark blue cake stands of different sizes. there are egg yolks, sugar, mango puree, butter, and creamcheese. Then, also, milk, salt, cake flour, cornstarch, vanilla extract, egg whites and cream of tartar.

Step-by-Step Instructions 📋

Preparing the Cheesecake Batter

In a medium saucepan, mix the cream cheese and butter over low heat until smooth and creamy. Remove from heat and whisk in the sugar and egg yolks until completely combined. Add the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, vanilla extract, mango puree, and milk. Whisk until thoroughly mixed, ensuring the mixture doesn’t stick to the side of the pot. Set aside off the heat.

Whipping the Egg Whites

Beat the egg whites till stiff peaks form. Start the mixer slowly to avoid splattering, then gradually increase the speed from medium to high, spending 2-3 minutes at each level. When the foam starts, add the cream of tartar, and once the egg whites are foamy and white, add the sugar. Mix until stiff peaks form.

Combining the Batter and Whites

Add 1/3 of the beaten egg whites to the batter in the saucepan and gently fold. Repeat one more time, then pour the batter into the remaining whipped egg whites and fold until fully incorporated. Ensure there are no white streaks, which would cook separately in the rice cooker and create soft spots in the cheesecake. Finish with a whisk to ensure the mixture is completely combined.

Preparing the Rice Cooker

Butter the rice cooker pot using your fingers or a soft paper towel. Pour the batter into the pot and tap to deflate air bubbles. Cook the cheesecake in the Cuckoo Rice Cooker on the non-pressure steam setting for 40 minutes. The cake will be jiggly and very soft when done. Carefully flip the cake onto a serving plate or cake stand.

Garnishing and Finishing the Cake

Let the cake cool down for 60 minutes before decorating. You can eat the cake the same day, and it will be very soft and jiggly, but it will taste slightly eggy. For best results, refrigerate the cheesecake overnight. This helps the flavors meld, making the cheesecake taste less eggy and more rich and creamy. Just before serving, arrange the mango slices on top of the cake in a spiral flower pattern and top with mint.
