Käsesahne Torte The Käsesahne Torte is a very well-known cake in Germany. It is found in many bakeries and cafes. It can be made with or without fruit.
Literally translated, Käsesahne Torte means Cheese-Cream Cake (not Creamcheese). Its ingredients include both cheese (Quark) and cream (whipped cream). A sponge cake is baked ahead of time and used as a base and topping for the cake. The cheese-cream filling is not cooked. Instead it is filled raw into a spring-form pan over the sponge cake bottom. Gelatine is used as a thickener. The cake must firm up in the refrigerator overnight.
