Quark cheese cake without crust
1 kg Quark
2/3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3 tablespoons cornstarch (Maizena)
100g butter (= 8 tablespoons) , melted and cooled
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 lemon, grated peel and juice
Preheat the oven to 190°C and put the oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Butter the bottom and the sides of the baking form and sprinkle in flour to lightly coat the form.
In a large bowl, beat together the Quark, sugar, vanilla, eggs, cornstarch, butter, flour, baking powder, lemon peel and juice until the batter is creamy.
Pour the batter into the prepared form. Bake for 45 minutes.
Remove the cake from the oven and place the form on a cooling rack. The cake will be losing its height – that’s normal. Let the cake cool down completely before removing the sides of the form.
Enjoy with with a dollop of whipped cream.
