These fluffy German quark pancakes are made with a great portion of protein-packed quark. They're great smothered in apple sauce and more quark!
The texture of these pancakes is like eating clouds and the flavor hints at Käsekuchen. The recipe is super fast and easy to make and with 31 grams of protein per serving thanks to the German magic dairy called quark.
They keep you full and satisfied for hours unlike other sugar-packed pancake breakfasts. So dig in, make another batch, dig in again and maybe share that time.
I love smothering my quark pancakes in homemade apple sauce, which comes together super quickly in about 15 minutes.
Finally, finish your stack of pancakes with a spoonful of quark on top. It's the only right way to eat these.
Quark Pfannkuchen: German Quark Pancakes
- Whisk together all ingredients and set aside for 5 minutes. Cook pancakes on medium heat (350 degrees Fahrenheit on griddle) for a couple of minutes on each side. Makes about 16 small pancakes.
- Peel, core and chop apples into medium sized pieces. Immeditely toss in the lemon juice.
- Combine with water, spices, salt and syrup in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir, cover with a lid, and cook on medium for 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and puree to your liking (I use an immersion blender and I like some chunks, so I didn't puree all of my apples).
- Add vanilla and stir. Serve warm or cold with the pancakes and lastly top with more quark.
