Quark Fritters


This quark fritters' recipe is an old recipe I've been making for years. It's a classic and it never gets bored. The fritters are soft and airy. I even enjoy the process of frying them because I love watching how they are flipping themselves over in oil. It's very easy to mix the batter as it requires no kneading, creaming or something. I hope you'll enjoy these lovely fritters!


Quark Fritters

400g quark/cottage cheese/curd
3 eggs
6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanillin sugar
flour (~9 tablespoons)
oil for frying

1) Beat eggs with sugar and vanillin sugar. Add quark and mix everything well.

2) Start adding flour spoon by spoon. You can vary from 7 to 10 tablespoons. Start forming balls (~4cm diameter) with wet hands in order to avoid it sticking too much. The dough has to be sticky but it has to hold its shape when formed into a ball.

3) Preheat oil in a pot. Put a formed fritter into a tablespoon and carefully add it into oil. It has to start bubbling when you add a fritter. At first it sinks and if it rises into a surface after ~5-10 seconds, continue adding other fritters. Fry over a medium high heat until all sides are browned. If it browns too fast, reduce the heat to avoid underbaking of the insides.

4) When they're done, put them on a paper towel to drain. Dust generously with icing sugar. Cool before eating.

Enjoy!

  1. I have never tried something like this!! It looks delicious, with perfect shape and nice texture. It's like a donut hole, but surely a very different flavour!

    And I love quark cheese, so I'm going to save the recipe, perhaps one day we can try these!! They look amazing for sharing with friend at UEFA Euro is going to start soon.

    Thanks for sharing, and nice photos!!!!

    1. Thank you!! You know, actually there's something similar to a donut ;) I love quark cheese too, I have a recipe of very delicious dessert (I don't know its name because it's not an American dessert and I'll have to find out the name) filled with it, someday I'll share the recipe.
      And these are really perfect for sharing because you get approx. two dozen fritters (if you make them bite sized). :D
