Instructions
  1. Put the cookies in a food processor and crush into crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor you can also put the cookies in a plastic bag in between a kitchen towel and bash it with a rolling pin.
  2. In a saucepan or microwave, melt the butter. Mix the melted butter into the cookie crumbs. Transfer the cookie mixture to the springform and spread evenly over the base of the tin.
  3. Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes.
  4. Peel the mango and cut into small pieces. Keep a few strips of mango for decoration. Clean the lemon thoroughly and grate the rind. Use a fine grater.
  5. Squeeze the lemon and put the juice into a saucepan. Add to this 2 tbsp of water, 1 tsp ginger extract and warm it up on low heat.
  6. Squeeze the gelatine leaves and dissolve the leaves in the lemon juice mixture while stirring constantly. Once the gelatin is completely dissolved let it cool down for a bit.
  7. In a bowl combine the quark with the sugar and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, whisk the cream to a stiff consistency.
  8. Gradually stir the gelatin mixture into the quark mixture. Add the mango pieces. Next gently stir in the whipped cream try to keep some air in the mixture.
  9. Pour quark/whipped cream mixture into the springform. Let the cake firm up in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Once the cake has firmed up you can decorate it with strips of mango.
Recipe Notes
  • Instead of quark you can use plain yogurt.
  • For a stronger ginger flavor you can add some finely grated ginger. Ginger extract can be made by grating a piece of ginger and squeezing it through a cheesecloth or sieve. The juice that comes through the cloth or sieve can be used as an extract.
  • For a healthy version use low-fat items and add two extra gelatin leaves.
