By baking do you mean cooking in a savoury dish, or do you mean baking in a sweet/dessert type dish?

I've used it to make a cheesecake before, that worked well. It was a baked cheesecake rather than a chilled one

Can't remember if I've used it for cooking something though, I've made that many things I've lost track of when I've used it

I have just come across this thread. Have only been here for a week now and looking through all the postings.

I use quark to make a salad dressing. I mix it with lots of different seasoning: mustard powder, black and red pepper, garlic, curry powder.

Anything of your choosing depending how mild or hot you like it.
It also makes a tasty dip. I just love the stuff.

I sometimes use it over hot pasta with meat and veg and mix it all up and season.

The choices as to how to use it are endless.

I've got a Cheesecake recipe using Quark. It doesn't say the syns and I haven't gotten round to working it out but it only has a few syned ingredients and serves 10 so it wouldn't be a lot considering it's cheesecake.

Slimmingword Honey and Yogurt Cheesecake.

Slimming World's honey and yogurt cheesecake recipe is a really easy dessert that is a guilt-free treat the whole family can enjoy. Made with honey, creamy yogurt and fresh orange zest, this delicious cheesecake is the perfect weekend dessert. This recipe serves 10 people, ideal if you've got friends and family over for dinner. It will take around 1hr and 10 mins to make, plus cooling and chilling time. Greek yogurt and honey are world-famous and play a big part in Greek cuisine. In fact, their history of bee-keeping goes back to ancient times and this amazing cheesecake will definitely create a buzz!
Ingredients
• 4 level tbsp extra-light spread
• 10 light digestive biscuits, finely crushed
• 500g Quark
• 250g fat free natural Greek yogurt
• 4 large eggs
• 2 level tbsp honey (Greek if possible)
• 1 tsp ground cinnamon, plus extra to dust
• 2 tsp vanilla essence
• 2 tbsp sweetener
• finely grated zest and segments from 2 oranges
• 200g fat free natural fromage frais, sweetened to taste
This cheesecake is best made the day before you want to serve it so it has plenty of time to set in the fridge.

Method
1. Melt the extra-light spread in a pan over a low heat. Add the crushed biscuits and stir to mix well. Spoon into a 22cm non-stick spring-form cake tin, pressing down firmly to make a smooth and even base. Chill until needed.
2. Preheat the oven to 160C, gas 3.
3. Put the Quark, yogurt, eggs, honey, cinnamon, vanilla essence, sweetener and orange zest in a large bowl. Beat until well combined and pour over the biscuit base. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until just set and golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.
4. Remove the cheesecake from the tin, cover with cling film and chill for 6-8 hours or overnight if possible.
5. When you’re ready to eat, spread the fromage frais over the top of the cheesecake and dust with the extra cinnamon.
6. Cut into slices and serve with orange segments.

6 syns for the spread (1.5 syns per level tbsp)
30 syns for the digestives (3 syns per biscuit)
5 syns for honey (2.5 syns per level tbsp)
1 syns for sweetener (0.5 syns per level tbsp)

42 syns overall, 4.2 syns per slice if serving for 10.
Personally I'd count 4.5 per slice, but that's me being OCD with syn values

For those wondering about the syn value against the sweetener, it is free when used sparingly in tea/coffee/etc. but when it is used for baking, it should be synned.
