Quarkstollen with orange and marzipan filling – Quick recipes from my kitchen
So, dear Christmas, now you are here. Officially, it is now possible to bake, have a snack and have more snacking. Yesterday we were already at the Christmas market and got into the Christmas spirit.
Hach, I like it. Everywhere it smells of delicious food and hot drinks. The lights and the eyes of the children shine.
At the weekend we were also productive in the kitchen. We baked three different cookies and stollen.
Who says baking stollen must be complicated?
I live in Dresden, the tunnel city bad. There is also a big cult around the original Dresdner Christstollen, but you know what? I do not like it at all, since I have never gotten along so well with raisins.
That's why the stollen alternatives come to my table – like this curd tuna, which is filled with an orange-marzipan cream. Sounds delicious, right?
I discovered the recipe for this great orange-marzipan curd cake several years ago in the magazine Everyday (12/2013) and since then it has been prepared several times.
I always halve the dough and make two pieces from it. One for self-service and one for giving. Shared happiness is double happiness.
The preparation is really easy, I do not have to give many tips. Therefore, a word about storage. Like every stollen, this one tastes the best. So you can leave it for a few days before you cut it. Store it in a cool place – fridge or bedroom – so it lasts longer.
Quarkstollen with orange and marzipan filling
Baking stollen does not have to be complicated. Try this simple orange-marzipan cheesecake. Easy to prepare, delicious in taste. Christmas can come!
Cooking time:30 minutes
Total time:1 hour
1 Organic orange
250 g marzipan
500 g of flour
1 Pkg. Baking powder
200 soft butter
120 g icing sugar
1 pinch of salt
250 g quark
50 g melted butter
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
For the marzipan filling, wash the orange under warm water and finely rub the peel off. Halve the orange and squeeze out the juice. Pluck the marzipan into small pieces. Separate 2 eggs and save egg yolk and egg white separately. Stir the egg whites with the marzipan and 50 ml of orange juice. With the whisk attachments of the hand mixer you stir the mixture until a smooth cream is produced.
Now mix the flour with the baking powder.
In a large bowl you stir the butter with the powdered sugar for about 5 minutes. Then add the 2 egg yolks and the whole egg in succession.
Mix the flour, cottage cheese and butter sugar mix. Stir everything until a smooth dough has formed.
Floats the workspace. Divide the dough into two parts and roll out one part each flat. The dough should be barely 1 cm thick.
Now spread the half of the marzipan paste in the middle of the dough and sprinkle half of the orange scrub over it. Be careful to leave some space at the edge. Now you form the dough into a stud and fold the two ends, so that nothing runs out.
Do the same with the second tunnel.
In the oven, the stollen is now baked for about 30 minutes.
After baking, sprinkle the stollen immediately with about 50 g of melted butter and sprinkle 1 tbsp of powdered sugar over it.
The stollen tastes best when it has been pulled through for a few days. Store in a cool place.
