Transcript:Japanese Rare Cheesecake

Hi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com Food. Today, I'll show you how to make Japanese rare cheesecake.

Japanese Rare Cheesecake Ingredients

You'll need:
  • 3/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup and 2 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp powder gelatin
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 package of graham crackers
  • 3 tbsp butter
You'll also need a rolling pin and a plastic bag.

Make the Graham Cracker Crust

Take a package of graham crackers and place it in a plastic bag. Roll over it with a rolling pin mashing it into the crumbs. Melt the butter in a microwave. In a medium bowl, add your freshly made graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and a tablespoon of sugar and mix it together. Press the crumbs into the bottom of a round cake pan (8 inch).

Make the Cheesecake Filling

Mix powder gelatin and water in a small cup and set aside. Stir cream cheese in a bowl until softened. Put water and gelatin mixture into microwave and heat for a minute. Add yogurt, sugar, lemon juice, and gelatin into softened cream cheese and mix well. Pour the filling into the crust and spread evenly. Refrigerate for 3 hours.

Serving Japanese Rare Cheesecake

If your pan has a removable bottom, place it on a large can, and pull down the sides. Slide the cake into a serving platter and cut it into wedges. Serve with your favorite fruit or jam.
