Recipe for Cheesecake with Chocolate

Easy Cheese Cake Recipe for Best Chocolate Cheesecake

This recipe for cheesecake is my son’s favorite chocolate cheesecake. He eats it every week on Friday when we go to music school.

My chocolate cheesecake recipe is a little different than the one we always buy at the school café. This easy cheese cake recipe makes a cake with crunchy top, soft cheese filling and a crunchy bottom.
recipe for cheeseake This easy cheese cake recipe uses quark (white cheese, smooth like ricotta, little sour) as a main ingredient. Quark, or white cheese, is not easy to get in the USA.

The Vermont Butter and Cheese Company makes quark in the US and some supermarkets carry it, but one can substitute the quark with a ricotta and sour cream mixture.

If you cannot buy quark in your local food store, then you can take 50 grams of sour cream and 450 grams of ricotta and blend it well.

I hope that you will enjoy this recipe for cheesecake.
