Method

  1. Tip the quark and sugar into a large bowl, squeeze in a few drops of lemon juice and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy (you can do this an hour or two ahead).
  2. Gently stir in raspberries until they begin to break up and mixture is streaked pink; taste and add a little more lemon juice if liked. Spoon into glasses and serve.

I made this for myself last night and I thought it was delicious. It made a nice change not to have a heavy dessert. It was light and sweet and the crunch of the frozen raspberries made it extra special!

I didn't like this dish at all. I don't think Quark is for me. I'll never make this again. Everyone else liked it though and ate every last bit..

I made this with Philadelphia and extra lemon juice and served it in teacups with a ginger biscuit on the side - simple and very tasty.

Excellent...and minimal effort required.
Will try adding ginger biscuits and toasted almonds next time!

I put in extra rasberrys at the bottom and toasted some almonds on top.

I have used quark before in a cheesecake and that worked really well, so i was interested to try this. It was really nice and very simple, I used sweetener instead of sugar and it worked fine. Also added a splash of amaretto liqueur as a treat! delicious!

This dessert is my kind of thing but I wasn't fond of the quark.
I used fresh raspberries and added choc chip cookies which was all
nice - maybe I would try again using low fat greek yoghurt??

Excellent, will definitely make it again but I let the raspberries thaw as I don't fancy icey ones. Might add a touch more icing sugar next time. First time I ever used Quark and will search for more recipes with it.

Quark is not available here in the US - anyone know how I can alter the recipe to use a different base?

I made this as per recipe but I had some left after dinner party and put in fridge overnight. I preferred it the next day when the raspberries were softer. Next time I will prepare day before.

This was so simple to make and was absolutely delicious.
I added some crushed ginger biscuits to add a bit more flavour and texture and crammed it full of raspberries.
My housemates loved it and I would most definately make this again.

I like to make this with 'pick your own' raspberries that I have frozen.
