What a busy month April turned out to be. In the best sense though. It started with a family weekend out in the mountains and continued to be a family focus month with my parent visit in mid April. Apart from a couple of stressful exam related moments in between, it has been great to me.
With me being out and about, you might have noticed a lack of posts on the blog. This doesn’t mean I haven’t been baking, it’s just that I haven’t managed to document it that well. The skill of taking pictures and writing up the recipes in a hurry is definitely something I should still work on.
When my parents came to Barcelona couple of weeks ago I asked them to bring some quark cheese as it is something I really miss here (yes, I’m talking about it again, I’m a bit obsessed with quark and cottage cheese). Half of it has been destined to turn into these fluffy quark pancakes, which for sure is one of the best things you can turn quark into.
FLUFFY QUARK PANCAKES (Makes about 7 big pancakes)
180g quark cheese
5-7 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
a few drops of vanilla extract
- Add quark, eggs and sugar to a large bowl and mix well until the ingredients are combined.
- Separately mix together flour and baking powder. Gradually start adding flour and milk to the egg mix alternating between two, i.e. add 1/3 part of flour, mix, add 1/3 of milk, mix. Continue until all incorporated. Add a few drops of vanilla and stir it in.
- Add a bit of oil to a pan and heat it up over a medium fire. Scoop two tablespoons of mixture and pour in the pan. Let the pancake cook about 2 minutes on each side before turning it.
- Serve pancakes with honey and fresh fruit for ultimate yumminess.
