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.
Baking time: 20 minutes
Cooling time: 2-3 hours
Amount: 1 cake
- Spring form (21 cm)
How to make it?
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.
I like it a lot if you make one of my recipes and I am very curious to see what you made and how you did it. That is why I like it also if you share it on Facebook or Instagram and tag Organic Happiness @organichappinessblog and/or use the hashtag #organichappiness
