Tips for making this coffee and chocolate cheesecake

This chocolate and coffee cheesecake does not have a biscuit base. Of course, you could add one but this would mean extra calories and really it is not necessary you will still enjoy it I am sure.

Only make this cheesecake using a springform cake tin. This is one where the bottom can easily be released. The main thing to ensure is that liquid can not escape before it is cooked!

What is Quark?

It is a soft cheese made with skimmed milk. It’s rather like Philadelphia in its consistency and, due to the fat-free aspect of it, there is little flavour. Because of this, quark on its own is not often enjoyed.

Quark is, due to its limited flavour, very versatile and useful in some great recipes. I frequently use it in both sweet and savoury recipes and share a variety of my favourite quark recipes.

Top tips for healthier treats

It is ingrained in us that desserts are not good for us. This is not the case. The reality is that it all comes down to eating everything in moderation and cooking things the right way. Many of us eat for the wrong reasons too.

Do you eat because you are hungry or because you are bored? We so often eat our emotions and that is what makes us gain weight more than what we are actually eating. Because we are feeling depressed we eat and eat and it is the quantity that really does it to the waistline!

If you are a bit of a food addict or find you are choosing the wrong snacks then finding more low syn snacks is what you need. Check out this directory for lots of ideas.

  1. I’m not a coffee drinker, but I do like the flavour in desserts. Quite difficult to believe that this cheesecake is an SW friendly one – delicious!
