My journey to find the best “Rahmkuchen” has come to an end. Finally! After years of searching, I have finally created the ultimate recipe with this delicious (sugar-free) Rahmkuchen aka. German Style Cheesecake! If you are new to the blog you might think “what kind of nonsense is that?” ;) Perhaps I should explain this “journey” a bit better. So grab a slice of the cake and get a cup of coffee… it’s time for a little story ;P
Cheesecakes are very popular bakes I’d say. At least here in our kitchen and among friends and family. As soon as a cheesecake, like this one here, is on the table the room turns silent and everyone is handing you their plate to get a slice of it. I am not complaining about that. If everyone is happy and silent… why would I complain?! ;P Another great thing about this Extra Rich Cheesecake – it is sugar-free! Means I can have at least one slice! ;P
If you want to eat a bit healthier, you should include foods in your diet on a regular basis that are good for your body. Stuff that contains lots of vitamins and minerals and stuff that’s good for your digestive system. A happy stomach and digestive system equals a happy (hopefully healthy) body ;) This means you should eat lots of fruits and veggies but also legumes and oats, for example. Even though oatmeal can be good for your body, these cookies are not quite a “healthy” snack I’d say. But they are better than most cookies from the supermarket though. Not only flavorwise :P
In German, there is not really a 100% suitable translation for the word “pie” – is it a cake, something like a tart? Well… not quite, right? Of course, pies exist within the category of cakes, but they are a bit more special I’d say. I guess it took a while, but by now everyone here understands what you mean when you talk about pie. Unless you are a group of German mathematics… they might think of something else first ;P Anyway. I got a pie for you! A delicious Buttermilk Pie!
Back in the day, this kind of cheesecake was something you could always find at a children’s birthday party. Chocolate Cheesecake aka. Russischer Zupfkuchen is still very popular here in Germany. Everyone loves this cake, I dare to say. If only I wished we had this sugar-free version back then! Maybe I could have avoided getting Diabetes. Just kidding… I would have gotten it anyway. The amount of chocolate and gummy bears I ate over the years was enough to give two people diabetes I guess. Not the occasional piece of cheesecake ;P
I haven’t baked a cheesecake in a while. I know… how could that happen?! Is there a limit for a “cheesecake-free” time? Probably ;) Well, the suffering is ending with this delicious (and sugar-free/no sugar added) Blueberry Cheesecake. I really need to bake cakes like this one here more often. Nothing can beat this creamy beauty with that blueberry topping! Mmmm…!
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
