      Making the original "QUARK" for the cheese cake is very very easy ladies! I just found out a few weeks ago. I use my oval shaped insert from my crock pot to heat 1 gallon buttermilk (plus small heavy whipping cream if you want sahne quark) in oven at about 300 until it starts to separate then turn it down lower for the rest of the time. Turn oven off after 2 hours and let cool down in oven then pour slowly into a clean cheese cloth laid out in a colander then let it slowly drain overnight. I cover top with a piece of aluminum foil and place a heavy bowl on top to give it a little pressure) You then have perfect Quark left behind in the morning. Transfer in a plastic bowl and seal with lid and refrigerate until you use it. Also, if you do not want to make the quark, the best yogurt to use is greek from FAGE highest % fat is the best. Thats just my opinion and its a taste preference.

      Kayline is right. This looks exactely like the ones my mom and grandma made back in Germany. Yes they get brown on top ...oh I got such a craving for one by looking at the authentic pictures. I'll bake one tomorrow, just for me cause my kids and hubby do not like them. Can you imagine a whole springform of cheesecake just for you?! Love this recipe with the fruit , try to use raisins like I do, or cherries. Oh Yum. Think of this as just another version of cheescake, there are several versions in america ,too. Good tio with the propped oven door and the center of the cake still wet. Right on!

      I haven't made this recipe, but I would like to say that German cheesecake is much different from the "New York" cheesecake that most of us are used to eating and that may be why this recipe got some bad reviews. It has a much lighter texture and more delicate flavor. Also, my German MIL's is always VERY brown on top - looks almost burned but doesn't taste that way.
