Dresden Custard Topped Cheesecake Style Cake

I am so glad I finally found the best Eierschecke (Dresden Custard Topped Cheesecake) recipe. Of course, I have to bake it right away to be able to know if the recipe is the right one or not and if it really tastes the same like I have it in your memory (had tried it once somewhere). And oh boy, it really is!

You can find the recipe here Dresdner Eierschecke Kuchen.
