Austrian Quark Dessert w/ Peaches & Eierlikör
This Is A Sponsored Post That Contains Affiliate Links
Sorry if I'm confusing you with this post since you may not be familiar with Topfen OR Quark yet. Topfen is Bavarian German or Austrian German for Quark, which is a German dairy product similar to greek yoghurt without all the tanginess. My favorite German dessert using Quark is German cheesecake as it's much lighter than American cheesecake and just has a unique taste that I oh so much love (I have a couple of cheesecake variation recipes on the blog already - scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for the links).
A Twist On The Austrian Classic
Today's quark dessert is super simple to make, featuring yummy flavors of caramelized peaches and Eierlikör - a liqueur made from eggs! It is then topped with grated white chocolate for the ultimate, sweet finish. Topfencreme is often served with fresh fruit, or is used in cakes, and can really be enjoyed any time of day (although if you add a shot of liqueur like I did, it may not be the safest breakfast to eat before you drive to work :-D).
Eierlikör - One Of Oma's Favorite Treats!
Oma Sieghilde used to love a shot of Eierlikör on her ice cream after dinner. And why not? This egg liqueur or advocaat is made using only the highest quality, grade A eggs. It's great in desserts of drinks (remember my "Fette Henne" spiked hot chocolate recipe?) and free of artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, gluten or lactose, but full of taste! Verpoorten is one of the widest known egg liqueurs in Europe - please visit ourniche.com to find out where you can purchase it.

Ingredients for 2 servings:
- 250 g topfen (quark - use a local brand if possible that has a firmer texture)
- 100 ml milk
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tablespoon cane sugar
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon Verpoorten egg liqueur
- 1 c frozen peaches + 2 tablespoon cane sugar
- In a large bowl, add together all ingredients for the Topfencreme and using and electric hand-held mixer (or standmixer), whisk until fluffy for about 5 minutes. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours to allow to set.
- In the meantime, sautée frozen peaches with some sugar for about 10 minutes or until the sugar is caramelizing. Remove from pan and chop into smaller pieces, then allow to cool.
- Finally, layer the peaches, Verpoorten egg liqueur and Topfencreme (I simply covered the bottom of the glasses with peaches) and sprinkle with grated white chocolate. Guten Appetit!
