Maybe the quark pancake seems strange at first hearing, but it is very delicious for breakfast on lazy weekends or perfect dessert after a great Ggoulash soup.
Hungarian túró is drier than quark. If the batter is very liquid, put 1-2 tablespoons flour more in the pancake.
This pancake’s recipe works with cottage cheese and ricotta too, but cottage cheese needs more flour.
Fun fact: In Hungary we eat the quark (Hungarian: túró) sweet or savory.
The pasta with quark and bacon (Hungarian: túrós tészta) is a perfect dish but the pancake filled with the sweet quark (Hungarian: túrós palacsinta) is also very good.
We like the “túró rudi”. It is a sweet quark bar coated with chocolate. If you want try something same, put the chocolate ganache on the quark pancake.
