Sade Cake (2)These popular, no-fail Estonian quark buns are light, fluffy and delicious!

They are so easy to make; perfect for bread-making beginners and experts alike!

If you want one of the easiest, foolproof and delicious buns recipes around, this is it.

I got this recipe from Säde. Quark adds acidity and lightness. And meringue from egg whites complements with texture and crispy top.

Notice, I did not use sugar. I used this time sweet quark. If you are going to use regular quark add some sugar in.

      1. Slightly more moist with a tad more flavour than the trad British scone ! Writing from Down Under and Brit-type scones are the ‘cat’s miaow’ here !!
