Preparation steps


For the dough: Put all ingredients for the dough into a bowl and knead together either by hand or using dough hook of a hand mixer. Divide dough, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 200°C (approximately 390°F).

For the topping: Separate eggs. Stir yolks with quark, sour cream, yogurt, lemon peel and pudding powder until smooth. Whip egg whites with sugar until stiff peaks form and fold into the quark mixture.


Roll out dough into size of baking sheet and place into a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread topping onto dough. Crumble remaining dough into small pieces and spread on the topping. Bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes. Mix egg yolk with cream mix and add to top of cake. Continue baking another 15 minutes.


Remove from oven and let cool. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar to taste, cut into pieces and serve.
