21.04.2022 - Recipe: Delicious quark-buns


  • 150 g butter
  • 0,5 l milk
  • 50 g fresh yeast
  • 150 ml Arctic Honey
  • 2 tbsp grated cardamom
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 kg wheat flour


  • 250 g quark
  • 50 ml cream
  • 50 ml lemon juice
  • 50 ml Arctic Honey
  • 1 egg

1 egg (for spreading)
1 tsp Polar Honey’s Strawberry jam to add in the middle of the cake, before adding the filling

After 45 minutes spread the dough into two parts and put it on a flour covered surface.Melt the butter in a pot.

Heat up the milk until it reaches a lukewarm temperature and stir the yeast into it using a whisk. Add the honey, cardamom, vanilla sugar, and salt. Slowly add half the amount of flour while still stirring. Stir everything well! Now start kneading the dough by hand and continue adding the remaining flour (approx. 70 g each). After 2/3 of the flour have been added, add the melted butter, and continue kneading until the butter is fully soaked up by the dough. Add as much flour as needed until the dough reaches an elastic texture. Keep on kneading for around 10 minutes. A soft texture is better than too hard.

Quark-buns are ready when they have reached a soft brownish glow.Now cover the bowl with a towel, for about 45 minutes and store it in a warm place until the dough reaches approx. twice its size. After 45 minutes spread the dough into two parts and put it on a flour covered surface. Be careful to not use too much flour! Cut both halves into 10 same sized pieces each.

Shape them into balls by hand and place them on a with a baking sheet covered baking tray and let them rest for additional 20 minutes. Make sure to leave enough space between them!

Quark filling: Mix all ingredients using a whisk.

After 20 minutes use a glass or mug to create a hole in the middle of each ball. Butter the edges of each ball with egg. Add 1 tsp of our strawberry jam into the hole, followed by a spoon of the quark filling. Bake them in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius, for about 12 minutes. They’re ready when they have reached a soft brownish glow.
