- 1 Tub Quark (250g)

- 3 Medium Eggs
- 4 tbsp Sweetener
- Begin by grating the lemon rind and squeezing out its juice.
- Separate the egg whites from the yolks.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F.
- Place the Quark in a mixing bowl and stir/beat it until it becomes smooth and creamy.
- Add the grated lemon rind and lemon juice to the mixing bowl. Tip: Microwave the lemon for 10-30 seconds to release more juice.
- Add the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of sweetener to the mixing bowl, and stir vigorously with a large spoon until the mixture is thoroughly blended.
- Divide the lemon-quark mixture evenly among four ramekins, filling them no more than two-thirds full. Alternatively, you can use a pie dish (and portion after it’s cooked), but make sure it’s not too small and deep.
- Place the ramekins on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl until they form stiff peaks. Gradually add 2 tablespoons of sweetener while continuing to whisk.
- Once the ramekins have baked for 10 minutes, remove them from the oven and spoon the meringue equally over each one.
- Return the ramekins to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
- Chill the Lemon Quark Meringue Pots before serving.
