Lava Cheese Tart 流心芝士撻 (1) (Airfryer)

Lava Cheese Tart is so popular in Saporro and now in Hong Kong.  Since I won't be visiting these places any sooner.  I decided to try my hand at it.

When I first came to know about this tart, there were only two recipes available online and both doesn't seems to be the close to the original.  

Within a month or so, more recipes were popping up in the cyberworld.

Actually my crave picks up again after talking to a fellow blogger who went to Japan recently.  Since I have all the cheeses on hand, I pick this recipe to try.  I will be eagerly looking forward to her experiment as hers might be the closest to the real stuff.  

Findings: When you cut immediately after baked, the lava effect is very evident.  

Upon resting around 5 mins, it will not be runny but will still yield a soft curd.

Overall, the tart is yummy but as to whether it is the same as the original, I was told that the original has a distinct cheese taste as I guess I won't be able to replicate that as getting Japanese cheese is not easy.

Perhaps you can incorporate sharper cheese and let me know how your experiment turn out.

In the meantime, I think this will be able to satisfy my craving for the time being.
