Dukan Diet Recipe: Baked Coffee Cheesecake

A quick post with a dessert recipe – I think I might go with a cheesecake theme for the next few posts!

Baked Coffee Cheesecake


  • 6 large Eggs
  • 300g of Fromage Frais
  • 200g  of Quark
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking powder
  • 8 to 9 tablespoons of  Splenda or other sweetener
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons of instant coffee
  1. Dissolve the coffee in a small amount of almost boiling water and allow to cool, if you like a strong coffee taste you may want to add extra coffee.  You can decide not to use it and then use anything which is left to make yourself a mug of coffee.
  2. Split the eggs into two large bowls putting the yolks in one and the whites in the other.
  3. Beat the yolks and add the fromage frais and quark, followed by the sweetener and coffee both of which can be adjusted to taste and finally stir in the baking powder.
  4. Whisk the egg whites until they form peaks and then fold carefully into the other mixture.
  5. Pour into a  9″ non stick springform cake tin and bake for 50 minutes at 180°C, 350°F or Gas Mark 4.
  6. Turn off the heat and leave your cheesecake in the oven for a further 10 minutes.
  7. Take out of the oven and allow to cool before removing from the tin and placing on a serving plate.
  8. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.

This is great topped with a spoonful of vanilla flavored Greek yogurt.!

    i made this today. I have to say I was glad I didn’t read any of the other posts about it. I had to sub in some American versions of things, but overall it was pretty good. I used farmer cheese for the quark and Greek yogurt for the formage frais. Aside from a little moisture….it was pretty good. It tasted like the inside of a blintz. The good news was I had no birthday cake. 🙂

      Hi Karen

      Well done on the birthday cake – I’m glad you enjoyed the cheesecake.

      Best wishes

    I’m a serious baker (although obviously not any more, on the dukan diet) and thought this recipe sounded a little funky.. Oh My God.. I ended up with a monster sized weird omlette thing with a completely uncookable centre – 1,5 hours and it still wasn’t cooked so I took it out. It’s got too much mosture on the middle to be edible.. and possibly way too much egg whites? Shame.. but the hunt for a dukan cheesecake continues!

    Hi Amber,

    I was wondering what you can use instead of the Fromage Frais. I am not sure where to find it around here and honestly have never heard of it until this diet. Could Fat free cream cheese be used instead? I see this in other recipes you have posted such as your cheese cake.

    I tried this and decided you only need a tablespoon amount of coffee not the 1/3 cup I used. I ended up with a coffee flavour baked ommlette! Disaster, but quite funny!

      Hi Liz

      Wow, that’s a lot of caffeine! LOL

        Don’t have any for dessert after dinner or you’ll never sleep!
        Seriously, this looks great. Do you have anything posted about substitutes for quark? I saw the one about the zero fat Greek yogurt for the fromage frais so I’ll use that in your recipes. Before I plunge into anything using yogurt for the quark I thought I’d ask.

          Hi Mary

          Drain the Greek yogurt and it will give you a soft cheese that is virtually the same as quark. The longer you drain it the firmer it becomes.
