Unlike Western creme d’ange and mousse-like No-Bake Cheesecake, it uses gelatin, so it has a plump texture.

In Japan, it is said that, a pastry shop, “Top’ s”, in Akasaka, Tokyo, was first released in the 1960s, but it is uncertain.

Because it can be cooked without using fire, it is a favorite for children and beginners.

You can also reduce calories by replacing part of the cream cheese with tofu or gelatin with agar. Because of this ease of arrangement, there are also rare cheesecakes with the flavors of roasted green tea or matcha.

Japanese writer’s comment for Rare Cheesecake

It’s a cold and refreshing cake, so it’s preferred by people who don’t like sweets. If you like rich cakes, it may not be enough. It looks white and is very beautiful with colorful fruit sauce, so the photo is very good.

Occasionally there is also a sweets corner at a convenience store. It’s often in a container like pudding, so you can easily take it out.

If you have a deep love for cheesecake, I recommend you to take a look at the pastry corner in the department store. You may find a long-established store Top ’s.
