Cook Time 40 minutes
Servings 12


  • Ø 24 cm bundt pan


  • 120 g black currants
  • 280 g tvorog
  • 150 g butter room-warm
  • 3 eggs
  • 180 g sugar
  • approx. 250 g flour
  • 10 g baking powder
  • 8 g vanilla sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • butter to grease the baking pan
  • flour for dusting the baking pan


  • Grease the bundt pan with butter and dust with flour, tapping off the excess flour.
  • Beat butter, sugar, vanilla sugar and salt for about 5 minutes until fluffy creamy light mass.
  • Add tvorog and beat until homogeneous.
  • Add eggs one at a time and beat each time until homogeneous.
  • Mix flour with baking powder, add it in batches to the tvorog mixture and mix just briefly to form a very viscous batter.
  • Gently stir black currants into the tvorog batter.
  • Pour the batter into the bundt pan, smooth it out and bake the currant cake with quark in a preheated oven at 180 °C top and bottom heat for about 40 minutes.


  • You can adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste.
  • Instead of Russian tvorog you can use quark. In this case you might need a little more flour for the batter.
  • Do not stir the batter too long, but only briefly until a homogeneous consistency, so that the currant cake with quark tastes moist and not rubbery at the end.
  • To bake the cake you need a Ø 24 cm bundt pan. Alternatively, you can use another baking pan.
  • Do not bake the berry quark bundt cake longer than necessary. Otherwise it could taste dry. Use a wooden skewer to check if it is done baking.
