Ingredients for the fluffy quark balls

You need: 250 grams of wheat flour (type 405), 125 grams of sugar, 250 grams of quark (lean, 20 percent fat), 1 packet of baking powder, 2 packets of vanilla sugar, 3 eggs, 1 liter of cooking oil / frying fat, 150 grams of sugar for rolling

And this is how the delicious quark balls are made:

1. Sift together flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix. Now add the sugar and vanilla sugar.

2. Then mix the curd and eggs. Now put everything in the bowl with all the more and mix the ingredients with the hand mixer. If the dough is too runny, it becomes difficult to shape the balls by hand. Then add a little more flour.

3. Now put a small pot on the stove, fill it with the frying fat and let everything heat up on medium heat. If you have a cooking thermometer on hand, you can check the temperature. The sausage balls are best baked at 180 degrees.

4. Now shape the dough into balls. You can use an ice cream scoop to help. Now carefully place the small dough balls in the hot fat.

5. The quark balls should swim in the hot fat for at least 5 to 7 minutes until they are cooked through. Of course, you can also use a fryer.

6. Remove the fried balls with a slotted spoon and let drain well on kitchen paper.

7. Roll the quark balls in sugar while still hot and serve while still hot.

Have a nice meal!

Extra tip: The ideal temperature for frying the quark balls is 180 degrees. If you do not have a kitchen thermometer on hand, you can use the wooden spoon method to check the temperature. Simply dip the handle on a wooden spoon or wooden stick in the hot frying fat. If small bubbles rise on it, it is hot enough and the quark balls can be baked.

By the way: The quark balls can be stored cool in a tin can without a sugar coating.

The quark balls are also available in a vegan version: Vegan quark is now available in various supermarkets and organic markets. If you do not find one, you can also use vegan yoghurt and let it drain in a clean kitchen towel for at least 2 to 3 hours so that it becomes firmer
