Jiggly Cake | Japanese cotton cheese cake

Has anyone made a Japanese style Jiggly Cake?

example here:




A friend has e-mailed me a recipe (not the same as the video) and I'm wondering if this cake is good enough to warrant the time investment?

I'd be a little concerned about the texture/mouth feel.

It sure looks jiggly. Not my kind of cake but I'd like to squeeze it.

I'd try it. It reminds me of angel food cake but more moist.

For some reason I'm feeling a little leery. I think I would like to see it physically before making a judgement.

So - I made this over the weekend. Interesting.

The texture is um... odd. The cake is very jiggly when it comes out of the oven and it's pretty. But after it cools (and deflates) it's like a very light cheese cake or maybe even a cold, souffle. The flavor is a bit flat although I pumped up the vanilla and lemon. It tastes cheesecake-ish. My DH compared it to whipped wall patch filler compound.

It needs to be refrigerated after cooking as it has a high egg content - souffle like.

Not recommending.
