Marjan's last week's article reminded me how much I love brunches and I got inspired to invite friends and family over for brunches way more often. It also made me think about my own brunch favorites and I realized there is this one recipe that I need to share with you: my beloved "Quarkschnecken".
So, treat yourself and your loved ones to a nice brunch, including Marjan's many great ideas, and of course, these addicting rolls.
150g (5 oz.) curd
5 tablespoons milk
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
75g (about 1/3 cup) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
300g (about 2 cups) all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
50g (about 1/4 cup) extra sugar
a handful or more of raisins
a handful or more of almond slivers
Preheat oven to 170°C/330°F
Mix curd, milk, egg yolk (save the white for later), oil, sugar, vanilla and salt. Slowly add flour and baking powder, one tablespoon at a time.
Roll out dough into a rectangular shape (less than 1cm/ half an inch thick).
With a fork slightly beat egg white, then spread onto the dough. Evenly sprinkle sugar, raisins and almonds, then roll together lengthwise.
Cut into slices, about 1cm/half an inch thick and place onto a baking tray, press down a little. Bake for about 20 minutes. Let cool.
Best enjoyed fresh!
