European Cheesecake

Ingredients

  • 1kg quark (quite hard to get at in the UK, I must admit) (Available in larger Tesco stores, if you're having problems finding it)
  • 125g butter
  • 325g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • One tbl/s baking powder (where I live, you can get wee satchets of these)
  • One tbl/s vanilla sugar (ditto)
  • One satchet vanilla pudding powder
  • 2 tbl/s semolina
  • One lemon, grated, and it's juice

Method

Basically, you add each ingredient bit by bit and use an electric mixer to mix it all up in one big bowl.

Pour into a (round) baking tin (about 20" diameter) and bake on Gas Mark 4 for around 90 mins.

Mixture will raise a lot, and then when you take it out to cool, collapse into itself - that's normal.

Oh, and don't worry if it's still very wobbly in the middle, it's supposed to be like that, it'll solidify and create a very moist cake... delicious.
