Zupfkuchen [Cheesecake with Chocolate topping]

The Zupfkuchen isn't exactly the same thing as a Cheesecake, but it is the closest translation which I seem to be able to find. Try it, it is delicious!


For the chocolate dough
* 200 gr of flour
* 100 gr of sugar
* 100 gr of butter
* 20 gr of cocoa
* 1 egg
* 1 sachet of baking powder

For the other dough
* 250 gr of sugar
* 200gr of butter
* 4 eggs
* 500 gr of curd cheese
* 1 sachet of vanilla blancmange powder (pudding in German)
* 1 sachet of vanilla powder
* juice of one lemon

For the chocolate dough, mix the butter and sugar to obtain a foamy mixture (the electric whip comes in handy there), then add the rest. You should get a nice homogeneous and malleable dough (quite similar to a pastry dough).

Put it aside until you need it.

For the creamy dough, mix again the sugar and butter into a foamy mixture, then add the eggs one at a time, and then add the rest of the ingredients. The dough will be more liquid.

Place half of the chocolate dough at the bottom of your baking form, and press it so that it covers all the surface. Pour the cream on top. 

Make small pieces with the remaining chocolate dough and drop them all over the cream.

Bake about one hour at 180°C (may need a little more or a little less depending on your oven).

Bon Appétit!
