Traditional German cheesecake is called Käsekuchen which also just means cheese + cake. This recipe makes a light and fluffy dessert because of the quark cheese it uses.

It also uses shortcrust pastry made from scratch instead of graham crackers we are so used to seeing in cheesecake recipes. Be sure to give this authentic delicious dessert a try, you won’t regret it!

Steps

1
Done

To make the crust combine the sugar and the softened butter in a bowl. Add the egg, then sift in the flour and baking powder. Grate the lemon zest and add it to the rest of the ingredients. Combine the ingredients to get a smooth dough. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for half an hour.

2
Done

Meanwhile, make the filling. Separate the egg yolks from the whites. Beat the egg whites using an electric mixer. To the yolks add the sugar, cornstarch, quark, and milk. Stir until smooth and creamy. Carefully incorporate the egg whites into this mixture until smooth.

3
Done

Roll the dough out. Place it in a baking dish. Press the dough with your fingers. Pour the filling on top and smooth it out with a spatula. Bake for an hour at 350 °F (180 °C).

A tip for a perfect Käsekuchen: when your dessert is ready turn off the oven and leave it half-open with the cheesecake inside for 4 to 5 hours. Dust the cake with powdered sugar and enjoy!

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

I have been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or weblog posts on this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this web site. Reading this information So i¦m glad to show that I’ve a very excellent uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed. I so much surely will make sure to don¦t fail to remember this site and give it a look regularly.

I was just searching for this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top web sites are full of garbage.
