Eat a Yoghurt-Fruit Cheese cake without the Guilt

Yoghurt-Fruit cheese cake with blueberry and raspberry

If you miss the German cheese cakes and think it’s not good for your hips, then bake it with Quark, in this case Greek-Yoghurt with Fruit. To make it easy, you can use Graham crackers as a crust. When you reduce the sugar, add the Fruits like Mandarines, Cherries and/or dark Berries. It will complete a healthy combination.

Category: Cake, Torte
Cuisine: German
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

This recipe is normally made with a “Mürbeteig” crust, but I skipped this step and instead used Graham crackers. Dr. Oetger pudding has no sugar, so if you use another store bought Pudding, see the label and adjust the sugar.


  • Crust:
  • I package Graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • Filling:
  • 500 g Creek Yoghurt. I used Fage (2% to 5 %)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 pack. Vanilla pudding (Dr. Oetger or other Cooking types)
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Mandarine (jar or can), blackberries, cherries or blueberries
  • 9″ round Spring form


  • Preheat oven to 350F (180C)
  • Follow direction on the Graham cracker crust (mix with butter) on back of the package.
  • Press down Graham crackers into the springform and let cool in freezer while preparing the filling
  • Mix and stir yoghurt, egg, vanilla pudding, sugar, milk and oil in a large bowl.
  • Place mandarines, washed cherries, blackberries and/or blueberries in a sieve to drip.
  • Remove spring form with Graham cracker crust from freezer.
  • Fill the spring form with half of the yoghurt mixture, alternate with some fruit, finish with the rest of the cheese cake mixture.
  • Lay the rest of mandarines and berries on top.
  • Bake at 350F (180C) for 70 to 75 minutes.
  • Make a tooth pick test.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for an hour.
  • Graham cracker streusel could be added.
  • Cool for an additional 3 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator


Let cool at least 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator, or best overnight. Streusel are optional
