Quark Mini Cheesecakes with Fresh Blackberries (German Käsekuchen) |

These Quark Mini Cheesecakes or German Käsekuchen are delightful and surprisingly easy desserts. Perfect for brunch, afternoon tea, or dinner guests. Topped with fresh seasonal berries, they are incredibly delicious.




1 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons butter melted
1 tablespoon sugar


1/2 cup butter, melted (1 stick)
2 cups Quark
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon cornstarch


1 cup fresh berries
mint sprigs


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.

Combine the graham crackers, melted butter and sugar. Spoon evenly into the 12 lined muffin cups and using a 1/4 cup measure, tap down the crumbs. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter, quark, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and cornstarch until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Portion the batter into the 12 muffin cups.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the center is mostly set. Turn the oven off and cool in the oven with the door ajar for 10 minutes. Remove to a metal rack to cool completely. The center will deflate slightly as it cools making it perfect for the berry topping you’ll add just before serving. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.

To serve, remove paper liners, top with fresh berries of choice and fresh mint sprigs.
