The Apple cake with quark filling is per my husband “the best cake that you ever made”. For the quark filling I used a mix of sour cream and cream cheese (50% each). And it tastes great! This apple cake is a perfect cake for the holidays. For the cream cheese use the one from Philadelphia and if you want to safe some calories you can even use the fat reduced version. Happy Baking!
