Ingredient Needed:

Ingredient Notes:

Lighter digestive biscuits – Choose these for a lighter German cheesecake experience, or opt for Graham crackers if you’re in the United States.

Light margarine – Melted to bind the biscuit crumbs, offering a healthier alternative to cold butter.

Eggs – Essential for setting the soft cheese filling.

Low-fat quark – The star of the show; if hard to find, consider substituting with low-fat Greek yogurt or pureed cottage cheese.

Vanilla extract – For that classic German cheesecake flavor.

Sweetener – Use a zero-calorie stevia for an almost sugar-free, authentic German touch.

Crafting the Perfect Cheesecake

Now, let’s embark on the journey of creating this delectable Slimming World Quark Cheesecake.

How To Make:

Begin by preheating your oven to 200 degrees.

Spray a 9-inch clip-release cake tin with Fry Light, ensuring both the base and sides are covered. Line it with baking paper.

Blitz the low-calorie biscuits into a fine crumb, either in a food processor or by placing them in a plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.

Transfer the biscuit crumbs to a medium bowl, add the melted margarine, and mix well.

Press the buttery biscuit mixture into the prepared tin and refrigerate while working on the cheesecake topping.

For the topping, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until smooth, then layer it on the biscuit base.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until firm. Allow the cheesecake to cool before serving.
