Easter cheesecake with meringue in the shape of a lamb

Must Try

I regularly check Pinterest for inspiration for my recipes. During my search for happy ideas for Easter I came across a lamb cake, super cute! I made my own version of the cake I came across on Pinterest. Fun for the kids but also for adults.

In the cake I came across, the lamb’s ‘wool’ was made from marshmallows. That looked nice but didn’t seem very tasty to me because cheesecake is also soft in structure. That’s why I came up with my own variant based on lemon cheesecake with, among other things, small meringue tufts. These are nice and crispy and combine great with the soft and fresh lemon cheesecake.

This lamb pie is really not that difficult to make. I did have some help from Dr. Oetker. As a base I used the Lemon Cheesecake from Dr. Oetker and added some fresh canned pineapple. But you can also replace it with, for example, mango, apricots or other fruit. The meringue meringues can’t really go wrong either. Because by using the Mix for Meringue from Dr. Oetker, you do not have to separate eggs and there is no chance that they will not become stiff. Then only the mouth, nose, eyes and ears follow and you’re done!

Recipe lamb cheesecake with meringue


1 x Dr. Oetker Lemon Cheesecake
250 ml whipped cream
500 ml low-fat quark
60 gr butter
250 gr canned pineapple (or other fruit)


1 pack Dr. Oetker Meringue Mix (enough for 2 cakes)
2 marshmallows
Decoration markers from Dr. Oetker

4 skewers
1 springform pan (24 cm) Baking tray
with baking paper
Piping bag with nozzle


Heat the convection oven to 110 degrees (electric 120 degrees / gas oven position 1). Mix the Mix for Meringue with 60 ml of water in a bowl and beat with a mixer for about 4 minutes until stiff. You can test if the meringue is stiff enough by turning the bowl upside down without the meringue mix running out. Put the mixture in a piping bag and pipe small desserts on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Place the baking sheet in the oven just below the center for 60 minutes. Then leave the meringues to cool in the oven for another 2 hours with the door closed.

Meanwhile we make the Lemon Cheesecake. Place the sheet of baking paper from the packaging on the bottom of the springform and click the edge on it. Melt the butter in a pan. Pour in the crumble mix. Spread the mixture over the bottom and press down with a spoon. Place the base in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Beat the cake mix with 400 ml water in a bowl and mix for 1 minute on the lowest setting. Add the cottage cheese and unwhipped cream and mix on high speed for 2 minutes. Cut the pineapple into pieces and pat dry with a paper towel. Set 1 piece of pineapple aside for the nose and fold the rest through 2/3 of the cake mixture and pour over the bottom. Then divide the other 1/3 of the mixture on top so that you have an even top. Place the cake in the fridge for about 2.5 hours.

Then the cake and the meringue meringues are ready about the same time. Carefully cut along the edge of the springform pan with a knife and remove the edge. Place a ring of meringue meringues on the outer edge. Make another half ring of meringues underneath and a few more underneath. Place the pineapple piece in the middle as his nose. Make the eyes and mouth with the decorating pens. Stick 2 skewers slightly apart in the marshmallow in front of his ears. Draw a circle on it with the decorating pens. Insert the skewers into the side of the cake and press firmly. And your cheerful lamb cake is ready!

With the meringue mix you make enough meringues for 2 cakes, but you can of course also eat the remaining meringues or make a delicious dessert.

Keep the cake in the fridge. Do you want to make this cake a day in advance? Make and store the cake and the meringues separately and do not decorate the cake until the day itself. This way the meringue meringues remain the crispiest and tastiest.

On the website of Dr. Oetker, you can get even more cheesecake inspiration and check out Easter ideas. Last year I made a lemon and apricot cheesecake for Easter. This cake can also be found on the website of Dr. Oetker. Delicious with coffee, for dessert or for brunch.
