This is based on my mum's traditional recipe for German cheesecake. Originally it uses a German ingredient 'quark' but for this recipe I have substituted for cottage cheese.
This cake is delicious! Easy to make and very popular with everyone who has eaten it. - 10 Apr 2011
This recipe is well worth making - It does require patience and planning but it is exactly the kind of recipe I was looking for. I wanted something without a base that uses cottage cheese. It is a bit tricky getting the lumps out of the cottage cheese but it still turned out really well. Perhaps a food proccessor may do a better job at making the cottage cheese smoother. Any suggestions would be welcome???? - 10 Sep 2014
I lived in Germany many years ago and loved eating cheesecake, but the cheesecake recipes in the US are very different. This recipe is the closest I've found to a traditional German cheesecake. - 09 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
