Cranberries are currently in high demand. And rightly so, because the tart and sweet berries native to North America not only contain a wealth of highly effective antioxidants, but studies have shown that they also prevent urinary tract infections.

Friends of classic quark cakes use raisins instead of cranberries. If you would like to prepare the quark cake alcohol-free, you can soak the dried fruit in some vanilla syrup (aroma syrup for coffee) - but then use 1-2 tbsp. less sugar for the quark mass.
