  • 1 lb mascarpone
  • 1 lb quark Note 1
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • juice of ½ lemon or more to taste
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lb strawberries Note 2
  • 2-4 tablespoons icing sugar to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated white chocolate


  • Whip mascarpone, quark, icing sugar, and the seeds of the vanilla bean. Don't throw away the empty vanilla bean; stick it in a jar full of sugar to get vanilla sugar, for instance.
  • Whip the heavy cream until stiff and fold it into the mascarpone mixture. Add lemon juice to taste.
  • Puree the strawberries with icing sugar to taste. Grate the white chocolate.
  • Assemble: Place the mascarpone cream mixture into one large dessert bowl or eight individual dessert cups. Pour the strawberry sauce over this mixture, poking a few times with a knife to allow the sauce to sink in the mascarpone mixture here and there.
  • Sprinkle with the grated chocolate and place in the fridge for at least two hours or until ready to serve.


  1. I used low-fat quark, which is very common in Germany; if you cannot find it, you could replace it with cream cheese or creamy yogurt or a mixture of the two.
  2. You can use frozen and defrosted strawberries when fresh ones are unavailable.
