Royal cheesecake recipe

Two popular cakes combined

This Polish pastry combines two popular cakes, namely the cheesecake and chocolate cake. So you don’t have to choose between the two.

The delicate chocolate shortbread and crunchy chocolate crumbles combine perfectly with the creamy tvorog filling. Each piece of it results in a heavenly delicious taste experience in your mouth.

Chocolate crumble cheesecake with cherries

In Poland, the Royal cheesecake is often made with sour cherries. For this, spread pitted cherries on the tvorog mass and sprinkle them with the chocolate crumbles only afterwards. This will give your cheesecake a fruity summer flavor, similar to the fruit curd cake with crumbles.

You can use both fresh and frozen fruit. Frozen cherries do not need to be thawed beforehand.

How to make Royal cheesecake perfect?

To make the Polish Royal cheesecake a perfect success, pay attention to a few details during preparation.

For the shortbread you need cold butter. Cut it into pieces beforehand and let it cool down afterwards.

Do not knead the dough for long, so that the butter does not melt from the heat of your hands. Once it has a homogeneous consistency, it is ready.

Also, let the chocolate shortbread chill thoroughly. I put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can put it in the fridge for at least 1 hour. The dough for the crumble should be firm enough that you can coarsely grate it with a kitchen grater without any problems.

Do not bake the chocolate crumble cheesecake longer than necessary, so that it tastes moist and tender. You can take it out of the oven when it is still a bit wobbly in the middle, just like the rice quark casserole with apples. Do a chopstick test, the wooden skewer should come out of the cake slightly moist. After cooling, the filling will become firmer.

The Royal cheesecake tastes best the next day. So let it sit in the fridge overnight before serving.
