"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." — ~TxCin~ILove2Ck

I dont know what quark is. used cottage cheese instead, and it did not turn out well. A disappointment.
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!
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!
Because the dough has so much butter in it it´s not necessary to grease the springform. And if you don´t have vanilla pudding mix just put cornstarch instead, little less the weight of pudding mix, and increase the amount of vanilla sugar.
About as German as Cheesecake gets! DELICIOUS! I made this last night for a Company Picnic and everybody (that got a piece) loved it! When you first make the filling it seems a little runny- but don't fret it will all harden up! Also-cooktime was closer to 90 minutes at 375. But soooo good!
Fast so gut wie Mama's
Wonderful recipe! I am not a big cheesecake person but this defiantly is one of my favorite things to make, and eat. It is great for parties of just for fun. If you cannot find any quark use greek yogurt because it has the same frequency.
