    Lol seeing good ol' Naomi Jon here was unexpected xD but I love the recipe! Would it be possible to use Xanthan or Guar gum powder too? We use those at work but we just do cold stuff (delicatessen like mayonnaise, potatoe salads etc.) so I don't know how this would turn out when baking it.

    Tried one of these from an ice cream shop. It took them 30 minutes hidden away in the back to make it, and I didn’t like it at all, even eating it with ice cream. Some people must like super eggy fluffy flour blobs, but I’d rather just eat eggs if that’s what it’s gonna taste like.

    My molecular gastronomy knowledge is pretty limited, but I'd hazard a guess and say they're adding locust bean gum as it wouldn't affect the viscosity until the cooking process. As it cooks, it activates and acts as a thickener, making a more viscose batter to trap air pockets and stablise the finished product.

    Hi lily I understand what you are saying but still it is wasteful in my humble opinion and kicking food is not Something very cool

  • lily


    Day ago

    I understand where you're coming from but whenever you learn something new waste is always a hurdle to begin with, it can be frustrating and expensive but its to ultimately improve a craft. The production of art supplies negatively impacts the environment for instance but to stop using them altogether because of that, rather than finding green solutions and recycling, would be a waste of what we DO have and can be said for almost anything, even the technology you watched this on. It's awful people don't have access to food but it's no reason, if you have the means, to not develop your skills as unless you planned on feeding them yourself, it wouldn't make anyone any less hungry but if you don't mess up you wont get better.

    Excuse me, but the eggwhite is too runny. Whip it until an egg floats on top of the egg white. Also the egg white should stay in the bowl when you turn it upside down. Here's how I do it: 1. Add the sugar to the egg yolk 2. Per egg add 1 tsp hot water to the egg white 3. Add a pinch of salt to the egg white 4. Whip until stiff as described. Do NOT use a high power machen, you CAN overwhip it Then fold as described in the video. I guarantee it works much better

    I had this same issue trying to make the Japanese jiggly souffle cheesecake. I tried exact measurements from both American and Japanese scales (as well as using Celsius/Fahrenheit cook times) and I could not get it to puff up. My egg whites would get too stiff or too runny, batter would be too runny or too thick making the cake super dense and like a sad, overcooked sponge that was thick enough to grout your floors with it 🧽 super frustrating, and even watching the most professional Japanese chefs' tutorialsonline, I could not get it right. I even tried an American variation from Laura Vitale and hers looks 1000x better and cooked properly. I just chalked it up to my oven/my complete lack of basic baking skills, but the batter and process is actually not too different from the pancake recipe minus the cream cheese. I'm going to try some of Ann's secrets here and pray I do everything correct, my nearest Asian grocery store no longer sells the pre-packaged Japanese cheesecakes 😭😭😭
