Suggestions for terminology

Hallo,
i am publishing a Cooking book in english in Germany and i am not very firm with english,
i copy below one of the recipe,

can you check it and tell me if it is correct?
For example i am not sure if the expression "pre bake" is correct,
thank you!
eiasu



Blueberry cream cheesecake
fresh and fruity
Dough:
  • 250 g flour
  • 125 g butter
  • 80 g sugar
  • 1 egg
Cheese cream:
  • ½ kg cheese (curd cheese or ricotta)
  • 80 g sugar
  • 80 g vanilla custard powder
  • lemon peel of 1 lemon
  • lemon juice according to taste
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ l sweet cream
Topping:
  • ¼ l sweet cream
  • ½ kg frozen or fresh blueberries



Dough:
Cut the butter into small pieces, mix the ingredients and quickly knead them to a dough. Wrap it into a plastic foil and leave it for minimum 2 hours in the fridge.
Roll the dough and cover a cake tin bottom and edge with it, prebake it at 190° for about ten minutes and let the cake cool down.
Filling:
Divide the eggs and put the egg white separate. Whip the egg yellows with the sugar creamy, then add the cheese, the custard powder and the lemon peel and -juice.
Whip the egg whites until they are stiff and do the same with the sweet cream.
Carefully mix the two stiff masses with the cheese-mixture so that it becomes a fluffy cream. Fill it into the pre bake a dough and bake it in the oven at the same temperature for about 60 minutes. Let it cool down (actually it tastes best if you do the steps up to here already one day before so that the cheesecake can really settle).
Topping:
Whip the cream very stiff and carefully mix in the blueberries. Decorate according to your taste.
Variations:
Try only the cheesecake without topping and add to the filling either rum raisins or tangerine pieces (out of a can or fresh).
Vary the topping as you like, also cherries taste very good or gooseberries, be inventive!

curd cheese: cottage cheese?
vanilla custard powder: vanilla pudding mix?

Eiasu, I am sending you a PM with some suggestions.

Wyogal, there is such a thing as cheese curd, which is different from cottage cheese but not all that readily available - it does give the option of using ricotta. Cheese curd is used in poutine here in Canada.

As for vanilla custard powder, it is a staple here and I believe in Europe as well. It is the key to "Nanaimo Bars". But instant vanilla pudding mix could be substituted as long as it is measured out.

The cheese curd down here is really big chunks of curds, nothing like ricotta, not even close.

So is ours here. I would suggest, Eiasu, just listing ricotta as the cheese. I agree with Wyogal that cheese curd would not make a good cheesecake.

You could substitute cream cheese, marscapone or ricotta for quark. But quark gives an awesome taste. I would probably suggest stating "quark or ricotta", giving the maker the choice. Anyone else have a thought on this?

having spend some time in Germany, not sure I'd translate - at least USA - 'pudding' as 'custard'

quark is seriously unknown in USA.
Frischkaese is not present / known.

these 'items' or their very similar counterpart may be available at the very local level - but I am unaware of any 'national brands' that get with kilometers of either product.

I am curious about your publishing theory - is this to support the commune? the web site presents it as a very commercial enterprise.
I also wonder why if in Germany it is being published in English... what market audience are you intending to reach?

mfg,
Dillbert

When I see the divide eggs I think they will be used in two different steps. Perhaps just saying separate eggs into yolks and whites. We tend to call the yellow part yolk.

Another question is what to do with the lemon peel. Do you zest it, grate it? some folks would not know which to do and may just chop it up and add it.

The rest I think is easy to understand and follow.
