Cottage cheese can taste delicious served both cold as well as hot. Cold, it can serve as a sandwich spread, and when hot, it can be a part of a filling used in patties.
Today, I would like to share with you a recipe for quark cheese cakes. In these cakes, quark cheese is warm as I decided to bake my cakes in the oven. That is the healthier version of the cake, as you could also fry them on oil if you prefer it as such.
I served the quark cheese cakes with sour cream mixed with radish.

How to make quark cheese cakes.
Put quark cheese into a bowl, add egg yolks, flour, potato flour, melted but cooled down butter, salt, pepper and finely grated onion. Mix all the ingredients.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then gently stir them into the ingredients in the bowl.
Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Next, form little cakes with a spoon.
Place the quark cheese cakes in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius and bake for 45 minutes. Turn the cakes over halfway through the baking time.
Wash the radish, cut it into slices and put it into a small bowl. Add a pinch of salt, sour cream and mix.
Serve the cakes warm with the creamy radish on the side.
