Can a simplified cheesecake recipe be too good to be true? Only if two million-plus YouTube viewers are wrong.
As the Daily Mail reports, a recipe for Japanese Cotton Cheesecake from YouTube star Ochikeron has taken the social media world by storm. It’s amazingly simple, using only three ingredients — eggs, white chocolate, and cream cheese — to create a light, fluffy soufflé cheesecake.
Of course, the big question is whether the results for the average home cook can match the original. But even with a little variation in technique, it seems that it doesn’t disappoint.

Ochikeron regularly puts up videos that respond to challenges for simple recipes and tips. She’s shared a recipe for a two ingredient chocolate cake.
A decadent no-bake chocolate cake for Valentine’s Day.
Two ingredient banana pancakes (just bananas and eggs).
And a cheeseburger too cute to eat.
It’s so easy, it’s almost like there’s no excuse not to make it and eat it right now.
