Cheese Cake with red fruit

Cheese Cake with red fruit. This healthy Cheese Cake is a recommended when you are looking for a delicious birthday cake and don’t want one filled with sugars.
I used to look forward to my grandmothers birthday or a Mothers Day when we would visit my grandmother. She used to make the best Cheese Cake ever! When we celebrated our own birthday we also asked her to bake us a Cheese Cake. She still does it and I can also still enjoy it, but not the way I used to. Funny that when you start to eat healthy some things just don’t taste like they used to, less tasty or just too sweet. My grandmother made the bottom of the cake from Bastogne cookies and I like them so much!

It seemed a good idea to make a healthy version of a less healthy Cheese Cake. But how do you do that?! I had never made a Cheese Cake before and had no idea where to start. I got inspired by the yogurt cake from van Focus on Foodies and here you can see the first result of the cake. A lot of bottom and not so much Cheese. Later I made it again but with twice as much quark and fruit. That looked more like a Cheese Cake.

​Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time:             20 minutes
Cooling time:           2-3 hours
Amount:                      1 cake
Special Products:

  • Blender
  • Spring form (21 cm)


  • 100 grams coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 40 grams honey
  • 700 grams quark
  • 100 grams almond flour
  • 50 grams spelt flour
  • 10 grams baking powder
  • 8 grams cinnamon
  • 250 grams red fruit
  • 7 grams agar agar
  • 1 liter water

How to make it?
Preheat the oven on 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit). Put the coconut oil in a small pan and put on low heat fire to melt. Put the eggs, 20 grams honey and 100 grams quark in the blender. When the coconut oil has melted you can add that as well. Blend for a few minutes into a dough.

​Cover the spring form with a piece of baking paper and divide the mixture over the bottom of the form. Try to make it as smooth as possible to make sure the bottom has the same thickness everywhere. Bake the bottom for 20 minutes in a preheated oven, pay attention that the baking time may differ per oven. In the meantime you can make the quark layer. Mix the rest of the quark with the rest of the honey properly in a mixing bowl.

For the red fruit I picked strawberries and red currant. I put them in the blender. Mix through the quark mixture. You can now use the agar agar. Agar Agar is a plant based variant of gelatin and I believe it is easier to work with than gelatin as well. Put 1 liter water in a pan and add the agar agar. Heat the water (until just before boiling) and keep on stirring. You will notice the mixture getting more thick.

​When you notice that the water mixture with agar agar is thick enough you can carefully stir it through the quark mixture. Divide over the bottom and set in the fridge. Let the cake harden in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Afterwards you can carefully get the cake out of the form. And of course enjoy it. Pay attention that you can’t freeze the cake so you have to eat it soon. But I don’t believe that will be a problem with this delicious cake.
