I'm bumping this recipe because I really think it's worth you reading and trying. My Grandmother was German and always made this cheesecake for us. My dad entered it in a contest years ago and won first place. It's easy, and from what I gather a true German Cheesecake.
Hope some of you try it. I KNOW YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID.
Have a great and Happy day, Liz
Yes my mom also made something similar that she called Kase Kuchen. I think the crust might be the same but the filling was just eggs, dry curd cottage cheese, and cream and then she put cinnamon on top - I think I will call my sister and see if she knows how it was made. Thanks for the memory!
lizamladyCream `1 1/1 cups sugar,
Yes, sorry it's 1 1/2 cups sugar and I always put 1 tsp vanilla
Cool in the pan when finished baking DO NOT PUT IN REFRIGERATOR to cool. Take it out of the pan very carefully (slide a knife along the sides to loosen).. then unlatch the spring form pan sides watching to be sure the crust isn't sticking to the pan.Leave the cake on the bottom part of the spring form pan while serving.
Thanks for the answer. I like to try old recipes and I didn't want to mess it up because it sounds good.
