Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 500 gr / 18oz digestive cookies or graham crackers
  • 85 gr / 3oz melted butter
  • pinch of fleur de sal
  • spray cooking oil

For the cheesecake:

  • 500 gr / 18oz cream cheese
  • 200 gr / 7oz ricotta cheese
  • 200 gr / 7oz quark cheese
  • 130 gr / 4.7oz white sugar
  • 70 gr / 2.5oz brown sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod scraped
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • zest of 1 orange
  • pinch of fleur de sal

For the raspberry sauce:

  • 300 gr frozen raspberries
  • 75 ml / 2.5fl oz water
  • 70 gr / 2.3oz white sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp of warm water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 160C/ 320F.
  • In a food processor, mix together cookies, butter and a pinch of salt, and pulse until finely crumbly.
  • Spray with oil the bottom and sides of a 20cm/8-inch springform pan. Fold in the crust mixture onto the bottom and sides, and press firmly. Then refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a stand mixer, beat cream cheese, ricotta, and quark together with white and brown sugar until light and smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at the time, mixing until just combined. Then stir in the vanilla and orange zest and a pinch of salt.
  • Wrap foil tightly around bottom and sides of the pan. Pour the filling evenly over the bottom of the pan.Then transfer the pan into a large roasting dish.
  • Fill the roasting dish with boiling water, halfway through the springform pan.
  • Bake for about 1h15m -1h30m or until the cheesecake reaches an internal temperature of 65C/150F, the edges are set and the center edges are set, and center jiggles slightly.
  • Remove the springform pan from the water bath, remove foil and refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 5-7 hours or overnight.
  • In the meantime, prepare the raspberry sauce: in a small sauce pan, fold in raspberry, sugar and water and bring to a gentle boil.
  • In a small cup mix together cornstarch with the water, until dissolved. Stir into the raspberry mixture and boil over medium-low heat for an extra 4-5 minutes or until the mixture has thickened a bit.
  • Allow to cool, then pour over the cheesecake and serve immediately.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Notes

Make sure not to overmix the batter, mix only until just smooth.
Wrap your cake tin with a double layer o foil, to avoid any leaks when baking in the water bath.
To check whether the cheesecake is ready, use an instant-read thermometer and make sure the cheesecake inside reaches 65C/150°F.
