Cheese Cake with RUF Käsekuchen Hilfe



Mom and I made cheese cake together last Sunday :) Actually we divided the task, mom was responsible for the crust and I was responsible for the filling.

In order to make a successful classic German cheese cake, we used the Käsekuchen Hilfe - Cheese cake aid from RUF (a German product).

The recipe:
Cheesecake Crust:
200 gr Flour
3 gr baking powder
75 gr butter
75 gr sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg

Cheesecake Filling:
750 gr Quark cheese (or light sour cream)
150 gr sugar
4 egg yolks
4 egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp grated citron skin
250 ml milk
1 sachet of RUF Käsekuchenhilfe


For the crust:
Mix all the ingredients for the crust then transfer the dough to a 26 - 28 cm removable-bottom tart pan. Roll and press firmly the 2 / 3 of the dough on the bottom and the remaining dough shaping from the edge until approx. 3 cm up sides the pan.


For the filling:
Place the light sour cream (quark), 100 gr sugar, 4 egg yolks, vanilla, grated citron's skin in a bowl. Mix them together until smooth.
In another bowl, teat 4 egg whites with 50 gr sugar until firm then pour it to the other bowl of the cheese cake mixture.
Add one sachet of RUF Käsekuchenhilfe and one cup of milk.
Mix well then fill into to the prepared baking pan with crust.
Bake at 350F (175C) on the middle rack for approximately 70 minutes.

  52. Hi Selby,

    Great blog! Gorgeous cheesecake! I'd like to ask where did you get the RUF Käsekuchenhilfe?
    I never seen it in Jakarta...And may I also ask what cream cheese brand did you use for this recipe?? Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  53. ivaline: Hi Ivaline, thanks for your stopping by and the compliments :) My mom got the RUF Käsekuchenhilfe from Germany, but probably you can find it in supermarket like Kem Chicks that sell import stuff.
    As for the cream cheese, I used "yummy", it's a local product and you can buy it easily in Hero or Carrefour.
    Happy baking :)
