If you can’t decide between baking a cheesecake or a chocolate cake, bake the Izaura cake – a combination of both! A rich chocolate base and fluffy cheese topping make this a delightful treat.


Chocolate Layer:

  • Margarine: 250 grams
  • Eggs: 4
  • Sugar: 1/2 cup
  • All-purpose flour: 1.5 cups
  • Cocoa powder: 4 tablespoons
  • Baking powder: 2 teaspoons
  • Vanilla sugar: 2 tablespoons

  • Ground quark cheese: 1 kilogram
  • Cream pudding mix: 2 packets
  • Eggs: 6

Pan size: 28×24.5 cm (or larger).

  1. Chocolate Layer:
    • Melt margarine with sugar, vanilla sugar, and cocoa, then leave to cool.
    • Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
    • Mix flour with baking powder. Add the yolks and the cooled margarine mixture. Mix thoroughly.
    • Gently fold in the beaten egg whites. Pour the chocolate batter into a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. Cheese Layer:
    • Beat the eggs with sugar until fluffy. Add softened butter and gradually add the ground cheese. Finally, add the pudding mix and combine well.
    • Pour the cheese mixture over the chocolate layer. You can slightly swirl the two layers with a fork to create a marbled effect.

    • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (without convection).
    • Bake for about one hour. After baking, remove from the oven and let it cool. Refrigerate for several hours.
