Kitchen utensils

1 Small bowl, 1 Teaspoon, 1 Fine grater, 1 Citrus juicer, 1 Loaf pan (about 30x11 cm), 1 Pastry brush, 1 deep bowl, 1 Hand mixer, 1 Tablespoon, 1 large Bowl, 1 Cup, 1 Fine-mesh sieve, 1 Whisk, 1 Rubber spatula, 1 Wire rack, 1 Tea strainer

Preparation steps

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 1

In a small bowl, mix dried cherries and 1 teaspoon cornstarch. Rinse lemon in hot water, wipe dry and grate zest. Cut lemon in half and squeeze out juice.

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 2

Grease a loaf pan (about 30 x 11 cm) (approximately 12 x 4 inches) with butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 3

Separate the eggs. Add salt to the egg whites and beat with the whisk attachment of a hand mixer until stiff. Refrigerate egg whites.

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 4

Add sugar, vanilla, egg yolks, and 2 tablespoons of water to a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer until creamy. Gradually stir in cheese or quark.

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 5

In a cup, mix baking powder and remaining cornstarch. Stir into the egg yolk-cheese mixture.

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 6

Place the cherries in a sieve and shake to remove excess cornstarch. Mix cherries, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and poppy seeds into the egg yolk-cheese mixture.

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 7

Carefully fold in egg whites with a whisk. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and smooth with a rubber spatula. Bake on the second rack from the bottom in a preheated oven at 175°C (step 2 convection 150°C, gas) (approximately 350°F/convection 300°F) until firm and brown on the surface, 80-90 minutes.

Cherry Cheesecake preparation step 8

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Remove cake from the pan and let cool on a wire rack completely. Before serving, place powdered sugar in a tea strainer and sprinkle over cake.
