Alsatian Cheese cake (Käsküeche)
4
1 Review.
A French cheese cake from the region Alsace where the cake is called käsküeche. The bottom is made like a pie bottom and not like the usual cheese cake bottom with biscuits crumbles. It is big, fluffy, and less sweet than the American or English versions. You can add some citron peel in the cake to have a different taste.
