I wanted to make a chocolate bottom cheesecake. And I mean not a common chocolate bottom, but a dense and fudgy brownie! I also added some strawberries, baked it shortly in the oven, topped it with cheese, put it back in the oven and after thirty minutes my kitchen started to smell amazing and the cheesecake was golden brown. But, as if that was not enough, I decided to garnish the top with roasted strawberries. Strawberries baked in the oven are wonderful, the high temperature gives the berries a very intense flavor, leaving the sweetest and softest fruit you will ever taste. I mean, you’ve got to be addicted by now, I sure am!
- 1 organic egg
- 140 g sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 100 g Greek yoghurt
- 60 g flour
- 45 g cocoa powder
- 100 g strawberries, cut into small pieces
- 250 g fat natural quark cheese
- 100 g Greek yoghurt
- 2 organic eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 100 g sugar
- 1 tablespoon potato starch
- 200g strawberries
- 1 tablespoon honey
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Beat the egg with the sugar until the mixture has thickened and turned into very pale yellow. Add yogurt, vanilla extract and oil. Sift the flour and cocoa, combine into a homogeneous mixture. Add the strawberries and stir gently. Line a 20 cm springform pan with baking paper and grease the sides with butter. Pour the batter into the pan, place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Beat the eggs, egg yolks and sugar until the mixture has thickened and turned a very pale yellow. Add cheese, yogurt and potato starch, stir gently with a spatula. Pour the cheese filling onto the brownie and put back in the oven for 20 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 150°C and bake for 50 minutes more. Allow to cool.
Cut the strawberries in half, place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake for 15 minutes at 160°C. Let chill slightly and than top the cheesecake with the roasted strawberries. Enjoy!
whenever someone says cheese, i automatically associate it with savory things, even if it’s quark or cream cheese or mascarpone or something else that can definitely be used for sweet things. anyways, this sounds delicious and decadent, and i could have used a slice when i had a cup of tea this afternoon (:
Thanks, Heather! Oh yes, I love cheesecake and savory cheesecake too, it’s delicious with roasted cherry tomatoes (:
