Quark Creme - Quarkspeise



Quark Cream with Blackberries

J. McGavin

Not a pudding, not a custard, there is no good translation for Quarkspeise. If you can purchase the quark, a cross between yogurt and sour cream, do so, otherwise you can try this recipe with yogurt cheese.

Quark Creme is a dessert with many variations. The whipped cream can be omitted to save calories, but certainly tones down the tart flavor. This dessert is related to the English “Fool”.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 lb of quark or yogurt cheese, about 1 ½ cups (see below)
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ½ cup whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 oz. grated chocolate
  • your choice of fruit (optional)


Stir quark, milk and sugar together until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream and grated chocolate. Refrigerate until dessert. Serve with fruit.

Yogurt cheese: Pour 1 quart of yogurt into a colander lined with several layers of cheesecloth. Place colander in a bowl and allow to drain overnight in the refrigerator. (Yogurt should not contain gelatin or the whey will not drain.)
