If you are fond of cheese cake, so you'll love German cheese cake (Käsekuchen). Germany has lots of types of cheese cake, and all are tasty ;-)
I always ate Käsekuchen at the café or bought one slice at the bakery shop but never of my own. Last week I craved cheese cake, but the one from café or bakery shop. What should I do? I never baked Käsekuchen before, but there is always the first time for everything, isn't it? Then you know what happened next, don't you. Yup! I baked my first Käsekuchen and it was success. Everybody who ate it, gave the compliments by saying how tasty it was or by eating it without stopping or by asking me to make it again :-)

On 25th of December 2007, I brought my homemade Käsekuchen for lunch with a very lovely German family. They said that it smacked "lecker".
