Q as Quarkkeulchen

Quarkkeulchen by our embassador Simona:

  • 1 large egg, possibly from pastured poultry 
  • 75 gr. boiled and riced potatoes (like Yukon Gold or Purple Majesty) 
  • 1 tablespoon / 12 gr. white sugar 
  • 75 gr. Quark cheese, possibly homemade 
  • 25 gr. whole-wheat pastry flour, sifted 
  • 1/4 teaspoon zest of organic orange or lemon 50 g raisins 
  • a pinch of salt 
  • olive oil 
  • roasted applesauce
Break the egg and separate yolk and white. Boil at least 100 g potatoes until tender. For efficiency's sake, I usually boil more and use what I don't need for this recipe to make mashed potatoes. As soon as you can handle, peel and run through a ricer or mash finely. Weigh the amount needed. Place in a bowl and let cool. Add egg yolk, sugar, Quark, flour and orange zest to the potatoes and stir well. Add the raisins and stir in. Whisk egg white with the pinch of salt until firm. Gently fold the egg white into the batter. Let the batter rest in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Warm up a skillet and oil it well. Warm up the oven to 190 F / 88 C and place an oven-resistant plate in it. Using a soup spoon, drop about 2 tablespoons of batter into the hot skillet and gently flatten with the back of the spoon to form a circle. Repeat to make four more Quarkkeulchen. Fry until they are golden (two minutes or so) then flip and repeat on the other side. Transfer to the warmed plate and keep in the oven. Oil again the skillet if necessary. Use the rest of the batter to make another batch of five Quarkkeulchen and cook as described above. Serve immediately with roasted applesauce.
