Why I Love This Recipe

Here is one classic Cheese Cake like you get in a German Cafe /"Konditorei" It is baked and you can keep in a fridge for up to a week.

*I´m sure you will find the Quark ("Magerquark") somewhere in stores. It is the same as the Icelandic Skyr. It´s like very thick buttermilk, but not sour. I´m sure you will get information on it at Whole Foods, which is my favourite supermarket to go and look and buy some small things :) Such a shame I can´t buy the fish there and cook it right away as I´m always in a hotel in the US... :)

Ingredients You'll Need

125g Butter
6 Eggs
300g Sugar
500g Quark *
1 small package Vanilla Pudding (e.G. from Dr. Oetker)
1 small package of Cheese Cake Help (Käsekuchenhilfe)
Grated peel of organic lemon
1 Cup Whipping cream (whipped)

one 26cm Spring Form buttered and sprinkled with bread crumble (you need ca 1 tbsp of the crumble).


Beat Butter and Sugar til light and fluffy. Add the Eggs one or two at a time and beat well.

Now add all other ingredients except for the whipped cream.

Finally add the whipped cream with a spatula.

Pour this mixture into the buttered and dusted spring form.

Bake at 200°C for 30 to 45 minutes. Or until nicely golden brown and a pin comes out pretty clean.

The cake rises high in the oven, but once taken out it falls down again. This is normal.

Let cool in the form before removed.

Great with a nice cup of coffee!!

Questions, Comments & Reviews

125 grams? 300 grams? 500 grams? What is Quark? It the Star Trek world, it's a Ferengie Barentender whose name si Quark. This recipe loks good. I'm considering the idea, of maybe trying it in the fall.

This one is really yummy :o) instead of cheese cake help (käsekuchenhilfe) you can use more of the pudding pulver or stark ... it´s very easy to make really and quite different to the US Cheesecakes

Happy New Cook and Bake Year

Guess What?? I found at Whole Foods at Columbus Cirlcle in New York!! Amazing! So I guess you will find anything there. When I make this one in Iceland I always use natural flavoured Skyr
