    Can someone help? I've just printed off the recipe for banoffee pie from the SW website and it says I have to use Quark. Now, I know it can be hard to get hold of, what else would I be able to use instead?

    I did think about fromage frais, wasn't sure if it would work. Never eaten Quark before though! The recipe says to whisk the Quark anyway, so I'm sure it will! :)

    Thank you!

    Waitrose and Tesco sell it. It is thicker and more solid than fromage frais, so the texture might be a bit different. Not much difference in the taste, though.

    I've never had quark before and I didn't even know it existed until SW consultant told me about it. Apparently it's fat free soft cheese which can be used in many things (dips, sauces, cakes, toast, etc) Has anyone had it? Is it nice? I am going to have to make something with it. Mmm... I love cheesecake, maybe I should make some with Quark. I've seen it, they sell it at Morrisons and Tesco. :)

    Week 1-4: 17.5lbs
    Week 4-8: 14lbs

    Know this is a late reply but I reckon 0% greek yoghurt would work in place of it if you can't get any. I use it as a substitute all the time as I find Quark a bit too dry/pastey

    Quark is brilliant stuff. You can marry it off with so many things. In the past I have chopped beetroot, onion, sweet and sour gherkin etc and had that with 2 ryvitas, or even with chopped fresh fruit. It is great to make soups creamy, to use on toast, on top of strawberries, the list is endless.

    We get it here without a problem and at times this place is really third world !!!! I am sure that in Bromley you will have no trouble.

    I agree with Claireybell, please put the recipe here,

    Good luck and enjoy.

    We sturggle to get it out here but fortunately a friend has dixcovered that they do it in the Debenhams Food Hall we have here. Maybe that's an option try your Marks and Sparks or Debenhams Food parts.

    I get my Quark from Tesco, some Asda shops do sell it, but not all of them, and Morrisons sell it as well.

    Good luck in finding it.

    A Debenhams Food Hall? I've NEVER heard of that! :)

    Well, I did find the Quark, in Tescos in the soft cheese area and I made the banoffee pie, but I used too much gelatine, so it came out more like a moose. Was still nice though and hubbys nan had two helpings! Will give it another go, with the proper amount of gelatine and then I'll take a photo of it! :)
