Who can resist this German cheesecake recipe. Kasekuchen is a favourite of mine and so refreshing with mandarin oranges. Obviously it is laden with calories but so delicious.
My recipe will make 24 slices.
2 tins of mandarin oranges (each 314 ml)
10 medium eggs
2 packets vanilla sugar (Dr Oetker)
pinch of salt
small amount of butter
1.5kg low fat quark
75g ground almonds
2 packets vanilla pudding powder (Dr Oetker)
50g sliced almonds
Drain the mandarin oranges. Beat the eggs in a very large bowl for about 10 minutes until thick and creamy. Sprinkle in the sugar, vanilla sugar and salt and mix. Stir in the quark, cream, mascarpone and 50g ground almonds. Sieve the pudding powder into the mixture and mix well. Lastly stir in carefully 4/5 of the mandarin oranges.
Sprinkle the remaining almonds over the bottom of a well greased baking tin. Pour the mixture into the tin. Decorate the top with the sliced almonds and remaining mandarin oranges and bake at 175 degrees C for 1 hour.
Leave to cool.
Enjoy my German cheescake recipe with friends and family.
