Questions & Replies

  1. Cream of wheat tort


  1. I was trying to replicate some Cream of Wheat "pearl noodles" that were made at a local Hungarian Restaurant. These were not it. The amount of egg makes these very jelly-like and not firm (comparable to scrambled egg feel). I found the directions a bit unclear, but tried my best to do what it called for. If it's a super soft/jelly like dumpling that you're looking for, this is for you. If it was a firm, tapioca-like textured dumpling, then keep searching.
  2. I make this a little different but these dumpling are a favorite at my house . The kids love them with fruit or syrup. We also eat them with cinnamon, sugar and butter mixture.HMMMMM
