A European-style cheese. Quark is the German word for this fresh, mild, farmstead smooth and creamy cheese that has no substitute. Now you can bake your true German Cheese Cake or use as a spread on your hearty German bread (mix diced onions into the quark, sprinkle with Hungarian Paprika for a delicious snack). Many Germans enjoy their Quark on a slice of Brot with Zuckerrüben Sirup (Sugar Beet Syrup) drizzled over it. Substitute Quark into recipes calling for ricotta, cottage cheese, homemade yogurt cheese, sour cream or cream cheese on a one-to-one basis. Quark is versatile in both sweet and savory recipes: cheesecakes, desserts, dips, bagel spreads, lasagnas, Flammkuchen, garnish on baked potatoes/soups/Mexican entrées. For baking a true German Cheese Cake, order Quark and “Oetker Cheese Cake Aid” in the Baking Aids Page.
