Bavarian Cheesecake Recipe

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

In the 1980's a small bakery in Simi Valley, CA  called Plusko's had this bar cheesecake that was amazing. It was not like your traditional cheesecake with the graham cracker crust. It seemed to have a cookie/pineapple type crust and the cheese cake part was a very firm and not too sweet texture. It was truly amazing.  Does anyone know of any recipes that sound anything like this?

 

:D

As I recall it's made with Quark and dried fruits, usually raisins and lemon zest. Quark is usually hard to find in the US but you can make your own.

As to the crust, it was more like a flavored pastry crust

Reading a little deeper about quark, it's often made with added cream. And the various kasekuchen rezepts I'm looking at specify as high as 20% fat quark Generally though, a 9% fat product is the preferred quark for this sort of thing as that is commonly available in Germany. Add some cream as you make your quark and you'll probably be closer to the result you're looking for.
