Healthy, because

Even smarter

The advantage of the quark oil dough is obvious: With few ingredients and little effort, Easter nests are very easy to prepare! The low-fat quark also makes the pastry juicy and richer in protein. The spelt flour type 1050 also provides digestive fibres.

The Easter nests made of quark oil dough are also great as a gift! Together with dyed or painted eggs, your loved ones will also enjoy the sweet pastry.

Preparation steps


Mix the flour, baking powder and powdered sugar and sift on a work surface. Mix in the salt and vanilla sugar and knead with quark, milk and oil into a smooth dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.


Knead the dough again on a floured work surface and divide into 16-20 portions. Roll each portion to about 22 cm (approximately 9 inches) long strands. Twist two strands like a cord around each other. Shape into nest and press the ends together.


Place the dough nests on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Beat the egg yolk with the milk and brush the dough nests with it. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (fan: 160°C, gas mark 2-3) (approximately 350°F) until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. Serve.
