    Ackman's Note:

    This authentic recipe came to me from a sweet, elderly German lady whose son is a 3rd generation "Wurstmacher" & owns a meat market in a small west-central Wisconsin town. She suggests that it is best to make the batter several hours ahead, This gives the batter time to soften & for any lumps to dissolve. Prep & cook times are approximate.

    1. 1
      Sift together the flour, salt & baking powder.
    2. 2
      Beat the eggs well.
    3. 3
      Gradually add the flour mixture a little at a time until well mixed. Batter will be stiff.
    4. 4
      Add the milk, a little at a time until batter is smooth. The batter should be the thickness of pancake batter.
    5. 5
      Fill a large kettle with water & bring to a boil. The water should be heavily salted.
    6. 6
      Carefully, tip the bowl over the kettle & using a butter knife, cut the batter into the salted water. (NOTE: You can also press the batter through the holes of a colander with the back of a spoon.).
    7. 7
      Cut or press through a few at a time until they float to the top.
    8. 8
      Remove noodles with a slotted spoon onto an oven-proof platter. (You can keep them warm in a 250° oven until finished.).
    9. 9
      Repeat steps 7 & 8 until batter is all gone.
    10. 10
      When done, pour melted butter over the top. Top with some bread crumbs, if desired. These are great when mixed with sauerkraut, too!
