Rhubarb Cake with Quark-Oildough

The rhubarb (Lat. Rheum rhabarbarum), our garden rhubarb with the large green leaves and red stems, is known medically as a laxative, but can also help with diarrhea. It contains calcium oxalate, tannins, calcium, iron, carotene, vitamins B1, B2 and C as well as essential oils. Traditionally, the rhubarb is only harvested until June 21st, when its high oxalic acid content ends the harvest. We like to enjoy our rhubarb in cake form, as a syrup or compote. Here is a yeast-free variant of the rhubarb cake on a quark oil dough filled with tasty vanilla pudding.
