plum cheesecake

Last weekend I tried out a new recipe that I found in a German magazine with cake recipes for the fall, and it was amazing. I am not the biggest fan of plain cheesecakes. But it’s great with plums or other fruit and crumbles on top. In the beginning of the summer I always make strawberry cheesecake which uses quark and cream cheese. This recipe uses quark and mascarpone. I’ve never tried mascarpone in cheesecake before and it is great. Normally German cheesecakes only use quark and no other kind of cheese.

So this is what you need:

  • 300g flour
  • 250 g sugar
  • 16g vanilla sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 175 g butter
  • 500 g plums
  • 500 g quark
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 37 g starch
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar

Knead the flour, 150 g of the sugar, 8 g of vanilla sugar, 1 egg and the butter to get the crumble dough. (You can make this ahead of time and put it in the fridge)

Split the dough in half and cover the bottom of a spring form with one half.

Mix together the quark, mascarpone, 100g of sugar, the lemon juice and 8 g of vanilla sugar. Then add the last 3 eggs one after the other and also mix in the starch.

Spread the quark mixture on the dough. Then cover it with your plums halves. Now cover it with the crumbles and bake at 175 ° Celsius for about 1 hour.

Let the cake cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Et voilà!
