Grandma’s quark muffins with vanilla pudding, I will only bake these muffins from now on

Start with the Base: Begin by whisking together the butter and sugar until well combined. This process creates a fluffy base that’s essential for the texture of your muffins.

Combine the Ingredients: To the butter and sugar mixture, add the eggs, quark, flour, baking powder, and vanilla pudding powder. Stir everything together until you achieve a smooth and creamy batter. The quark and vanilla pudding not only add a unique flavor but also contribute to the moistness of the muffins.

Prepare Your Muffin Tin: If you’re using a muffin tin, make sure to grease it well with some oil. For an extra precaution against sticking, place the greased tin in the fridge to chill until you’re ready to fill it with batter. This step ensures that your muffins will release easily after baking.

Bake to Perfection: Preheat your oven to 160°C (320°F). Fill the greased muffin tin with the batter and smooth the tops. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes, or until the muffins are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Customize Your Muffins: Feel free to personalize your muffins by adding fruits such as cherries, blueberries, or even chocolate shavings into the batter before baking. This adds an extra layer of flavor and texture that makes each muffin even more special.

Serving: Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve as a delightful breakfast, a snack, or a sweet treat to accompany your afternoon tea.


The quark in this recipe not only adds a subtle tanginess but also keeps the muffins incredibly moist. If quark is not available in your area, you can substitute it with a similar soft cheese or even Greek yogurt, adjusting the consistency of the batter as needed.

Enjoy the delicious simplicity of Grandma’s quark muffins with vanilla pudding, and revel in the smiles they bring to your table. Bon appétit!
