Quark Stollen for Christmas ♛

This is a wonderfully easy way to make stollen without yeast, yet it is still utterly delicious & keeps very well.

Soften 125g chopped butter
Add 350 g quark (a smooth, low fat soft white cheese)
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
Beat together till smooth
 add 2 eggs
zest of an orange
then, 500g mixed fruit...or any combination of dried fruit, peel, almonds etc that takes your fancy
3 cups flour & 3 tsps baking powder
mix it all in to a softish dough & using wet hands shape in to oblongs on a greased baking tray (or line with baking paper)


 Bake for 55- 60 mins at 180 degrees C & when partly cooled brush with a little melted butter & drench with icing sugar.


It's soo easy to make some smaller ones to give away out of this recipe too which is nice : )
If you'd like to have a go at making stollen using yeast then pop in here to David Lebovitz living the sweet life in Paris.

for a wonderful Christmas ♥

  1. Hello Dearest Catherine! How do you ever find the time to do all this amazing cooking? I got an urge to do some cooking for the holidays and cooked up a batch of mango chutney. Wow, lots of chopping! It was my first time and I think it turned out rather yummy...I'm nervous that my canning may not be "airtight."
    This dish you have pictured looks like something I can definitely enjoy! Possibly I will bravely attempt to try your recipe before the new year :)

    Love,
    Susan

  3. I haven't seen Quark here in the French Limousin - is there another soft cheese I could use?
