TWD - Cheesecake Alsace Style


This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Cheesecake Alsace Style.  The fascinating thing about this cheesecake is that it does not contain any cheese - the filling is made with yoghurt and cream.

This cheesecake is featherlight in both the filling and base.  You could eat a number of slices and not even notice.  And better still, it is delicious.  The dark top is normally something that would turn me off a cheesecake, but it is not a negative here at all. 


There are sultanas soaked in booze in this cheesecake, although you could leave them out if you have an aversion to such things.  I soaked my sultanas in Cointreau, somehow being wilfully blind to the fact that the recipe actually said Cognac or rum.

This cheesecake was absolutely perfect and I would happily make it again.

  1. Woo hoo! I love cheesecake and this looks delicious! Kind of funny though, no cheese in it! But booze in it sounds awesome! Thanks!

  2. Cheesecake is something I can usually eat and it sounds delicious. I love plump sultanas, especially in bread and butter pudding, but soaked in alcohol in a cheesecake sounds even yummier! Also, the added bonus of being able to eat several slices.

  4. This sounds like a nice twist on classic cheesecakes.

    I like sultanas but find them in a cheesecake intriguing!

  5. I like the sound of Cointreau - not sure about the sultanas though, I might use cranberries and Cointreau... I'm really interested to try this!
