German Food: How to make Quarkkeulchen

Quarkkeulchen Recipe

Quarkkeulchen is one of my favourite German food. In this post I am going to share my super yummy Quarkkeulchen recipe with you.

It looks like pancakes but it´s not – Quarkkeulchen (if you translate it: little quark pancakes). It is not really considered as one of the German desserts although it looks like one. Germans usually eat Quarkkeulchen as a proper dish. The yummy dumplings, which are a common dish from Saxony, are made out of mashed potatoes, flour, eggs and quark cheese. For those who have never heard of Quark before, Quark is a fresh product made out of milk that is common to lots of European countries. It´s similar to ricotta but different.

In Germany, Quarkkeulchen are usually served with sugar or Apfelmus. Apfelmus is made out of cooked apples commonly sweetened with sugar – sort of an apple sauce. I added fresh fruits picked from the garden 🙂

  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 500g quark

  • ~100g sugar – as you like it
  • 50 g raisins – if you like them, add more
