This is an authentic German cheesecake recipe from my friend Isolde, a dear friend and coworker, gave to me many years ago. Quark is found in Germany and parts of Europe. If you cannot find quark you may substitute fromage frais, yogurt cheese, mascarpone, 2 parts ricotta plus 1 part sour cream, or strained cottage cheese.

Outstanding!!! I made it for a Oktoberfest party and everyone loved it. I'm not sure why anyone would sub cottage cheese for quark since it's not even close to it in texture or taste. It has the texture of ricotta and the taste of a light sour cream. You must use quark for this recipe to taste right. To get the nice color on top I had to cook it for an hour and twenty minutes and chilled it over night. Again great recipe!

This was so much like my Oma's cheesecake I was floored! Luckily I found Quark, vanilla sugar, and non-instant vanilla pudding at a local German deli (Old Heidelberg, if you are in the Phoenix area). I followed the recipe to the T, except I added "drunk raisins" (raisins soaked in rum) to the batter, as my Oma does. It was fantastic. I am so glad that I can now make the cheesecake that I previously only had on trips to Germany. Thank you!
