- 50 g ground almonds
- 75 g sugar
- 1 egg
- 125 g butter
- 1000 g low fat quark
- 500 g puréed mangos
- 220 g sugar
- 300 g coconut milk

For the crust, using the dough hooks of an electric mixer combine together the flour, sugar, egg and butter (cut into pieces). Using your hands knead the dough until it becomes smooth, and then form it into a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film, and refrigerate for ca. 20 minutes.
Place the dough onto a floured work surface, and roll it out to a circle slightly larger than a spring form pan (ca. 26cm diameter). Grease and lightly dust the spring form pan with flour. Now place the dough into the spring form and form an edge.
Preheat the oven (electric 140°C / circulated air 120°C).
For the filling: Place the quark into a large bowl and using an electric mixer beat until creamy. Slowly add the coconut milk and mix well. Add to this mixture the sugar, vanilla sugar and mango purée, and mix until smooth. Stir in the pudding powder. Now add the eggs two at a time, mixing well with each addition. To finish fold in the shredded coconut. Carefully pour and spread the mixture evenly onto the crust and bake for one hour. After an hour reduce the oven temperature (electric 120°C / fan 110°C), and allow the cheesecake to bake for another two hours. Turn off the oven; however leave the cake inside for approximately one and a half hours. After one and half hours, remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool completely (preferably overnight).
For the mango syrup: Place the water and sugar into a pot, and bring to a boil. As soon as the sugar is fully dissolved, add the mango purée and simmer at a medium temperature, until the syrup has thickened. Remove from the stove and press through a sieve. Allow the syrup to cool completely before spreading it onto the cooled cheesecake. This yummy cheesecake is best kept refrigerated.
