This is a delightful treat! The cream is rich and decadent, the crust is delicate and sweet, the tart fruit adds a bit of surprise to the mix. Make it in advance for your guests or family and have vanilla-smelling kitchen for days 🙂
Imagine a cheesecake, that is actually good for you… Well, enter quark, the star of today´s bake! This cake is a Czech classic, but every family makes it a little differently. This version uses beaten egg whites to lighten up the quark layer, almond slivers for a bit of crunch and fruit on top for another bit of flavour.
I spoke about the benefits of quark before but I cannot stress it´s goodness enough. If you can get it where you live, make sure to give it a try and get a load. If you can´t, you could replace it with some soft cheese, but try something not too runny. Add fresh or tinned fruit, or make it without, and make sure to have enough, as everybody will be coming for more 🙂
If you have tons of produce, this pie, heavy in fruit and light in cream, is just for you!
