In Estonia is very popular a simple and very sweet Anniversary Quark cake. Anniversary because of for preparing this cake you need special ready-to-make cake powder “Juubeli”/anniversary.
All this combination is ultra sweet. But I believe, that reason for the popularity is simplicity. You should alternately put layers of quark cream and cake powder. and that is it!
It took from me time to figure out how to share this recipe with you. I believe you have not the same cake powder in your country 😉
I did different tests and now _I believe; I got the result, good and very similar to the origin. Ok, My recipe is not very sweet But you welcome to add as much sugar you like 😉
NB! Estonians usually add some apple or rhubarb slices as one middle layer or mixed in quark cream. Adding some fruits you get more moisture and delicious cake.
