Friend’s Anniversary-Hectic Pastry Week

18 Jul

I can’t tell you how thrilled I was when asked by a high school friend of mine to do a cake for her anniversary.  I wanted to make it fresh as much as possible, using two kinds of cheeses and incorporating what I learned from pastry school into the product.  Voila, here it is.   Thank You, Sau.  Happy Anniversary!!!

In addition, this was a hectic week as well as I had courses too with the ever so technical puff pastry.  It was hard work and attention to detail but in the end it paid off :).  I can’t wait till my next class in ice cream making.

Here is the recipe for German Cheesecake, adapted from a recipe of Le Cordon Bleu.

Baked Cheesecake

Pate Sucre

1 2/3 cups flour

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 egg yolk


4 eggs, seperated

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 cup cream cheese

1 cup Quark

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup sour cream

Make the Pate Sucre and use to line base of a greased 10 inch spring form pan.  Prick dough and chill for 30 minutes, then bake for 10 minutes at 340F.

Beat egg yolks and sugar together until pale and creamy.  Beat in cream and Quark cheese and lemon rind.  Sift flour over mixture and beat in, then fold in the sour cream.

Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold into mixture.  Turn into pastry crust and bake at 325F for 1 1/2 hours, until deep golden and set.  Let cool in the pan.  Chill for several hours and sift w/ powdered sugar before serving.

***For the cake I made it just decorated w/ fruits and white chocolate.  Decorations are your preference.
