Preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C). Grease an 8 or 9-Inch (20/22cm) springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, and sugar in a bowl. Add the soft vegan butter and knead with your hands until a dough forms. Shape into a disc wrap in foil and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Then, roll out the dough between two large pieces of foil (or on a lightly floured working surface). Lay it into your prepared pan and press the dough firmly at the bottom and the sides.
Using a fork, prick the bottom a few times to avoid rising during baking.
Add all ingredients for the cheesecake in a mixing bowl and mix until creamy using an electric hand mixer.
Fill the cheesecake mixture into the prepared springform pan with the crust inside. Tap the pan a few times on your work surface to remove any airy bubbles to avoid cheesecake cracks. Bake for about 1 hour.
Turn off the oven. Open the door a little bit and leave the cake inside for about 10 minutes longer. Then remove the cake slowly and let cool completely. Once cooled to room temperature place in the fridge to set overnight.
Cook the cake glaze according package instructions with water and sugar or juice. Then let cool slightly.
Spread strawberries over the cooled cheesecake and dollop the glaze on top, using a tablespoon. Chill in the fridge until the glaze is firm.
If you can’t find any soy quark in the store or online, you can simply drain about 26,5 oz (750 g) of any non-dairy yogurt overnnight in a strainer lined with a kitchen towel. That should make approx. 17,6 oz (500 g) of quark. Otherwise you can also substitute the quark with natural tofu or using only vegan cream cheese instead of quark + vegan butter.
I used this vegan cake glaze. Optionally you can stir 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch in 1/2 cup (125 ml) juice (or water + 1-2 tsp sugar) and bring to a boil.
Instead of strawberries, you use any fruits/berries.
Leftovers can be stored covered in the fridge for up to 5 days, depending on which kind of fruits you used.
