Introduction

This is my favourite cheesecake ever. It's not as light and frothy as a cream-cheese & eggwhites based one, but it's baked up in a flash and perfectly comforting and custardy.

  • Grease and line a 24cm springform tin, pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  • For the batter, cream the butter with the sugar and add the egg.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder together with the sugar. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and work until you have a rather firm, squishy dough.
  • Line the springform with 2/3 of the dough, poke it several times with a fork and blind-bake it for ca. 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, mix all the wet ingredients together until all the lumps from the Quark have dissolved. The mixture will be very runny and wet.
  • If your custard mix doesn't have a large amount of cornflour in it, add the extra spoonful and incorporate.
  • Take the tin out and let it cool for a few minutes. Shape the rest of the dough along the tin into a squdgy rim, then pour in the custardy mix.
  • Bake for about 1 hour or until it stops wobbling in the middle of the form.

    Tastes divine when it's still slightly warm from the oven - best enjoyed with a tall glass of ice cold milk.
