  • 320 g Flour
  • 35 g Baking cocoa
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 9 g Baking powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 160 g Cold butter
  • 150 g Sugar


  • 3 Eggs
  • 150 g Sugar
  • 200 g Butter liquid
  • 750 g Quark
  • 1 packet Vanilla sugar
  • 1 packet Vanilla custard powder


  • Preheat the oven to 180 ° C O / U heat. Grease a 26 cm springform pan.
  • Knead all ingredients for the base into a dough. Pour about 2/3 of the dough into the greased springform pan, distribute it evenly with your hands and press down. Press the dough about 2 cm high on the edge. Put the rest of the dough aside.
  • For the filling, stir the melted butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla sugar, quark and pudding powder into a creamy mixture.
  • Pour the quark mixture into the springform pan on the dark base. Pluck the remaining chocolate dough into flakes and spread on the quark cream. There should be some space between the flakes so that the curd cream can still be seen.
  • Place the cake in the preheated oven and bake for about 60 minutes. Then turn off the oven, half open the oven door and let the cake rest in the oven for about 10 minutes. Then take them out of the oven and let them cool on a wire rack. When the cake has cooled down completely, remove it from the mold and place it on a cake plate.
