    Quarkkeulchen is a dessert recipe that we have from our ancestors in Saxonia a federal state in the eastern part of Germany. Delicious when served cold or even still warm fresh out of the pan with some apple sauce. When you have never tasted them you have left out something extraordinary delicious. A first description of Quarkkeulchen might be that they are something between a pancake and a dumpling. Fried but fluffy, sweet and hearty.

    How to prepare Quarkkeulchen:

    1. Mash the cold, boiled potaoes.

    2. Adjoin all the other ingredients and knead the mass to a fine dough.

    3. Form the dough into Quarkkeulchen of handsize.

    4. Place the Quarkkeulchen in an hot oiled pan and press them until they are about 1cm thick. Roast the Quarkkeulchen until they are golden brown then broil them on lower temperature for another 10 to 15 minutes.

    5. When you take the Quarkkeulchen out of the pan, place them for a moment on some kitchen paper.

    Enjoy your meal!



    Quarkkeulchen can be served with:
    apple sauce
    powdered sugar

      This is a suprising recipe. Very practical. We could add or replace with other ingredients. I think olives (I love olives). Is it right ?

      Thank you for your feedback!
      To use olives as an ingredient instead of raisins and leave out the sugar is a promising idea. We were just (10 minutes ago) talking about your suggestion on the way home. What would you think of also using dried tomatoes?

      We usually make them when we have some potatoes leftover together with applesauce.

    8. Funny I never think of potatoes in a sweet dish, very interesting and intriguing recipe!

      Thank you for your point of view!
      Indeed it seems seldom that potatoes are used for sweet dishes in other countries as far as I can asess it. Another regional sweet dish with potatoes from the rhineland where we live is Rhinonian potatoe pancakes when prepared with apple sauce. Hope to have you again on our blog.
