The baked apples

50 grams of marzipan
50 grams of cranberry jam
30 grams of raisins
75 grams of chopped walnuts
4 tart apples
40 grams of butter
vanilla sugar
40 grams of honey
20 grams of rum


Ice cream

250 milliliter milk
250 millilter  single cream
1 vanilla pod
150 grams egg yolk
125 grams of sugar



250 grams quark
25 grams custard powder / instant pudding mix
2 eggs
vanilla sugar to taste
rum to taste
lemon zest to taste
3 egg whites
60 grams of sugar
sugar and butter for baking


For the ice cream mix the marzipan, cranberry jam, raisins and walnuts. Core the apples and fill them with the marzipan mix. Place the apples in a baking dish, dot with butter flakes and bake them in the oven at 320 degrees F for approx. 40 minutes.

Leave to cool, put the tepid mix through a blender and season the baked apple puree with cinnamon, vanilla sugar, honey and rum.

While the apples are baking in the oven put the milk, cream, the seeds scraped from the vanilla pod and the pod itself into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Set aside to cool and leave to infuse for at least 1 hour. Remove the pod and briefly warm the mix again. Stir the egg yolks and sugar vigorously and fold in the vanilla mix with a whisk. Gently heat to 175 degrees F over steam, simmer the mix, making sure that the ingredients do not get too hot as this would make the yolks curdle. Mix with the baked apple puree and freeze in an ice cream maker.

For the cheesecake, cream together the quark, custard powder, eggs, vanilla sugar, rum and lemon zest until smooth. Whip the egg whites together with the sugar to stiff peaks and gradually blend into the quark mix. Transfer to a suitable baking dish, covering the base to a depth of around
3 cm. Bake at 355 degrees F for about 15 minutes. Caramelize the sugar in a pan, add the butter and then the cake, turning it to coat both sides. Put the pan in the oven at 320 degrees F for a further 5 minutes. This way the cake will rise again. Cut into slices at the table.

Enjoy !
