If you are constantly on a diet, like me, :) and you are worried about your hips but you can't live without sweets I have a perfect solution for you!!! This cheesecake is extremely aromatic and the strawberry smell is just crazy! The strawberry aroma will surround your kitchen from the first minutes of baking! A great spring recipe which will bring some sun to your house :)
For the bottom:
- 1 cup of oatmeal or granola
- 50g melted butter
- 50g brown sugar - optional
- 500 g low fat cheese (I used quark 01g fat)
- 2 eggs
- 110 g sugar
- 1 package of vanilla instant pudding
- 1 package vanilla sugar (16g)
- 300g strawberries (you can use frozen strawberries in that case remember to not defrost them before)
Preheat the oven to 180ºC and prepare a 22-25cm round tin.
For the bottom: Mix the granola or oatmeal together with the melted butter and sugar and pour into the prepared tin. With a spoon or with your opened hand press the granola forming a flat surface. Put into the oven and bake for 15min.
For the cheesecake: Take all your ingredients except the strawberries and combine them together until you get a nice smooth texture. Note that we are adding the entire eggs to the mixture and we will not beat the egg whites separately.. Pour your cheese mixture into the tin, cut the strawberries into peaces and place them on the cheesecake gently pushing them into the mixture. Bake for approx. 60min. Before taking out of the oven leave to cool down for an hour and if you can resist put into the fridge and cool down over night. If you can't resist, like me, just bite in!!!!!
