German Quark dessert with fresh fruits

A tasty dessert after a delicious meal is always the icing on the cake.¬†This mousse always works out and you don’t need to much time for it.

Just the perfect recipe when you’re in a hurry!

My hubby loves this Quark Mousse with fresh strawberries dessert. I always fill it into small glasses or bowls so that everyone gets his portion and there is left enough for the next day.

If the whole mousse came on the table in a big bowl, everything would probably be gone at once! You just can’t get enough of this quark mousse!

Expert Tip

Two easy hints help you to avoid lumps in the mousse.

 

  1. Melt the soaked gelatine in a saucepan at low heat and add a few spoonfuls of the quark-egg mixture to the warm gelatine. Then add the gelatine mass to the remaining quark-egg mixture – done.
  2. Be careful when you put the mixture in the refrigerator to gel and do not let it become too firm. The quark-egg mass should run down toughly when the bowl is tilted. However, it should be somewhat more liquid than the consistency of pudding Рotherwise, lumps may form.

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Let's sweeten the day with a creamy and airy light quark mousse!

Ingredients

  • 3 sheets gelatine *
  • 2 eggs
  • 8.8 ounces (250 grams) cream quark **
  • 2.8 ounces (80 grams) + 2.5 ounces (70 grams) sugar
  • 7 ounces (200 grams) whipped cream
  • 1 pound (450 grams) of strawberries
  • A few leaves of mint for decoration

Instructions

  1. Soak gelatine sheets in cold water or mix the gelatine powder with approx. 2 tablespoons of water and let it swell.
  2. Separate the eggs in two different bowls.
  3. In a bowl mix quark, 2.8 ounces (80 grams) sugar and egg yolks with a stand mixer or by hand with a whisk well together.
  4. Squeeze gelatine sheets and put it in a pot - or put the swelled gelatine in a pot. Melt at low heat and mix with 2 tablespoons of quark-egg mixture. Then stir this gelatine mixture into the rest of the quark-egg mix. Place in the refrigerator.
  5. Whip the cream until stiff and set aside in the fridge.
  6. Beat the egg whites and 2.5 ounces (70 grams) sugar until they are stiff, then set aside.
  7. As soon as the quark-egg mixture starts to gel (see picture), fold in first the cream and then the beaten egg white by hand with a whisk.
  8. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  9. Cut strawberries into small cubes, pour over the mousse and decorate with a few mint leaves - serve and enjoy.



Notes

* I use unflavored ground gelatin (0,15 ounces (4.5 grams) are equivalent to 3 sheets gelatin)

** Because quark is hard to find here in the USA, I always substitute it with plain Greek yoghurt. Look for one with 5% fat to get closer to German quark.
