Royal Cheesecake with Cherries


  • Crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (320 g)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (100 g)
  • 7 tablespoons butter (200 g)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder (40 g)
  • A pinch of salt
  • Additionally:
  • 7 ounces cherries in syrup or 5 ounces cherry jam (200 g)
  • Cheesecake Filling:
  • 2 1/4 pounds high-quality cheese (1 kg)
  • 7 tablespoons butter (100 g)
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar (150 g)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar (20 g)
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 packet vanilla pudding powder (40 g)


  1. Cut the cold butter into small pieces for the crust. Add the flour, egg yolks, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and a pinch of salt. Knead into a crumbly dough.
  2. Divide the dough into two parts. Chill one part in the refrigerator.
  3. Spread the remaining dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, sized 20x30 cm. Pre-bake the crust for 5 minutes at 390°F (200°C) top and bottom heat.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the cheesecake filling. In a bowl, cream together softened butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla sugar until fluffy.
  5. Add the egg yolks and mix briefly. Then add the cheese and pudding powder, and mix until well combined.
  6. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form. Gently fold them into the cheese mixture.
  7. Spread the cherries or cherry jam over the pre-baked crust.
  8. Spread the cheesecake filling evenly on top of the cherries or jam.
  9. Grate the chilled dough from the refrigerator over the cheesecake filling, or crumble it with your fingers.
  10. Bake the cheesecake for 50 minutes at 320°F (160°C) top and bottom heat.
  11. Allow the cheesecake to cool in the turned-off, slightly open oven, then chill it in the refrigerator.
  12. Enjoy your delicious royal cheesecake with cherries!
