German Baked Cheesecake
80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
10 ingredients
6 servings
This is a baked cheesecake with shortcrust pastry instead of biscuit base, which comes pretty close to the 'real thing'. In Germany, we use 'quark' instead of cream cheese, which is somewhat lighter in texture. After much experimentation, I came up with this one. I did not include a recipe for shortcrust, I'm sure there are excellent ones around. Enjoy!
