Innocent Cheesecake Recipe

Innocent Cheesecake Recipe

It is a great snack to keep in the fridge before you grab something very-very bad. High in protein, low in sugar (just do not add too much dried fruit) and you can make it low fat with quark or higher fat with ricotta. It is very satisfying and even can work as dinner after a late night work out.


  • Quark or Cottage cheese or Ricotta 1 kg;
  • 6 eggs (deep yellow yolks give better taste and nice colour to cheesecake);
  • Dried fruits: apricots or raisins or cherries (I love them!) or pineapple to taste;
  • Vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract or vanilla pods to taste;
  • Grated peel of 1 fresh lemon.

Start with Quark

Lemon peels

Mix and add dried fruit


Mix all together with a mixer or blender, then add dried fruits. Grease a baking dish with butter, pour mixture into the baking dish and bake in the oven, until just ready, so it is still juicy.

Just wait for it to cool down, it tastes best when cold, and voilà! I also like it with plain yogurt.
