Cheesecake (hmmmmmm cake :) ) but no Instructable!?? Answered
Short story, long version :) :
I had an arguement with my sister about how to make a proper cheesecake as her'S either end up as a soaking mess or taste horrible.
To my surpise we settled down quickly and discovered she uses traditional Australian recepies based on weird things like cottage cheese, ricotta and so on.
Of course cheesecake is many hundrets if not thausands of years old and what we see today has nothing in common with the cakes from that time - but there is one thing our modern cakes all have in common:
They are based on what is available in terms of "fresh" cheese or stuff that looks like it, for example Philadelphia.
Where I come from a cheesecake might have some other cheese substitues included in the mix for texture and taste but the main ingredient is QUARK.
So my sister and I went to get some quark for the next bake off...
Let me tell you this much: If you are in AU you either won't get any at all or pay top prices!
I consider 9$ for 500g cheap around here! :(
And it simply does not taste right as everyone has to include some variation to it.
I say for a proper cheescake quark is needed!
Now my big question:
Do you have similar porblems obtaining quark for your deserts and baking needs?
If so I might consider to make an Instructable explaining how to make your own quark at home on the cheap.
Maybe even include a piece of cheesecake ;)
