So, you made some quark and now you are wondering what to do with it. Make some Rhubarb Streusel Cake, or for that matter, any Streusel cake. It is really easy to make and super delicious. Frankly, this is the only way I like my rhubarb. Now you might say “But aren’t there suppose to be strawberries in your rhubarb cake?” Nope, not this one. Don’t be afraid, it won’t be sour.

How to make Quark
Your first question, if you are not German or European, would be: What is quark? The answer is not as easy as I wish it would be. Let me start with a general introduction and we can go from there. Quark is very common in Germany, especially in Quarktorte or Käsekuchen, our cheese cake. It’s also used with herbs on baked potato. Now you might say “Ah, like cream cheese or sour cream?!”, no, not quiet.
German Cheese Cake
This is a classic in Germany and North America has something similar. But our cheese cake is made with quark. What’s that you ask? Well, it’s a sour milk product and is used often in Germany. You can use it for baking but you can also mix it up with some herbs and put it on your dark bread, or eat it with baked potatoes.
If you liked to know more then check out the Wikipedia page about Quark or look at this chart and see how it is related to other milk products. That will give you some insight.
I had nieces and a nephew over and I figured with this type of “cake” would be easy enough for them to make. It went pretty well but I had no time to take extra pictures.
