Small Quarkküchlein with jam - Quick recipes from my kitchen

Quark is a real all-rounder. It can be processed with herbs into a delicious herb quark or it is mixed with whipped cream and fruit topped a heavenly dessert. The applications are very diverse, so Quark is very popular with us in Germany. However, Quark is unknown in many countries. Italy is known e.g. only Mascarpone or England the Clottet Cheese. That's a pity.

Quark also cuts a fine figure when baking. What would my world be without my mom's delicious quark cake?

Today I have made small Quarkküchlein with a subtle lemon note and Marmeladenkleksen. Since these cakes have no bottom, the dough is stirred together very quickly. The idea for this recipe I have from the Mini cake by Cornelia Schinharl, I only needed about 10 minutes for the preparation. These little cakes were baked in a muffin baking tray, but other small molds are also suitable.
