  • 250 g Handkäse or Quark (see notes for recipe with quark)
  • 100 g spreadable cheese
  • 200 ml cream
  • 250 g cultured butter
  • 170 ml unsweetened evaporated milk or cream or milk
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp caraway seeds
  • sourdough bread & more butter, or schnitzel for serving


  • In a large pot, add all ingredients except the baking soda and caraway into a pot and let it melt at a low heat.
  • Stir occasionally until everything is melted and combined.
  • Turn off the heat and pull it away from the hot plate. Stir in the baking soda and caraway seeds. The spread will bubble and foam and increase in size.
  • Keep stirring until everything is well combined and the bubbles have settled a little bit (maybe 20 seconds). Transfer it to a container, cover it and let it cool in the fridge.
  • It’s best enjoyed on a buttered sourdough bread - or heated up on a Schnitzel.
