I decided to write something different this time...I have a HUGE sweet tooth! My favorites are chocolate & carrot flavored cakes, I don't usually like cheesecake that much tho ..I always think that unlike bread & cheese, cake and cheese don't fit well! But, not in Germany...I found that the cheesecakes in Germany (or Käsekuchen) are quite different from other cheesecakes I have had before... I have been told that Käsekuchen is made with quark cheese instead of cream cheese - a good alternative to get rid of some extra calories ;) Here are some short reviews about Käsekuchen from few bakeries around Muenster:
Not as good as a cheesecake that is baked fresh daily; the cream was way too sweet and not fluffy...don't like the thin 'jelly' layer on the top of the cheese cake.
Price : 1.20 EUR

The cheese cake was creamy, light and not too sweet..tasted great! I would have preferred not to have the sugary crust on the top of the cake.

Probably my favorite out of all I tried. Unlike other cheese cakes which come with a very thin sponge cake layer spread with cheese filling, this cheese cake was perfectly balanced with creamy filling and sponge cake layers. It tasted really fresh, like homemade! Again, I would have preferred not to have the icing sugar...
Price: 1.30 EUR

Note: The bakery offers cheese cakes only on Tuesdays and Fridays...;)

The good point is the cheese cake was made with organic ingredients. However, it is not my preferred cheesecake. I found the cheesecake filling to be a bit dry ('powdery') and heavy..
Price: 1.80 EUR

A decent, not too sweet cheesecake with a thin bottom layer. I probably would not buy it again, as I found it to be over priced and the portion was very small.
Price: 1.15 EUR

The bakery products are also available at the Muenster farmer's market. The cheese cake tasted rich, creamy and not too sweet! If you like a very thin sponge layer with much cheese filling, then this is probably the best option. Note that the baker sells only the half-cake or the whole cake. The price is unbeatable, just 5.00 EUR for the whole cake..wu-hooo...!
