A New York Cheesecake is characterized by two very typical features: Cookie crust and cream cheese. In America it is usually very rich in content - but not here! Oat flakes complement the cookie crumbs and make the base nice and crispy, while low-fat cream cheese makes it easier to enjoy. And on top of that, the calorie-reduced birch sugar (240 kilocalories per 100 grams) sweeten the cake.

Birch sugar or xylitol has a similar taste and almost the same sweetness as sucrose. The sugar alternative is safe for children and adults even in larger quantities. However, at the beginning no more than 3 to 4 teaspoons of xylitol (15 to 20 grams) per day should be consumed, otherwise flatulence and diarrhoea can occur. But with time the body gets used to it and higher quantities are tolerated.

Preparation steps


For the pastry: Pile flour on the work surface, mix with sugar, cocoa and salt and make a well in the center. Cut cold butter into small pieces and arrange around the well. Add an egg and approximately 40 ml (approximately 1/6 cup) of lukewarm water to the well and chop all ingredients with a knife until crumbly. Quickly knead into a smooth pastry and shape into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


For the caramel sauce: Heat sugar and water in a saucepan and dissolve sugar, stirring. Simmer until light brown. Add cream and cook, stirring, until caramel has dissolved, remove from heat and let cool.


For the topping: Rinse orange in hot water, pat dry and grate zest. Combine quark with sugar, vanilla sugar and orange zest, mix well. Add eggs, egg yolks and cream and whisk until smooth. 


Roll out pastry on a floured surface. Line tart pan with it, making 4 cm (approximately 1 1/2 inch) edge all around. Spread cream on top and bake in preheated oven at 200°C (approximately 400°F) for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and glide sharp knife between pastry crust and cream. Reduce oven temperture to 160°C (approximately 325°F) and bake cake for about 1 hour more. Remove from the oven and cool. Decorate cake with candied orange slices and drizzle with caramel sauce. Cut into slices and serve.
