Gogl-Mogl - Good for What Ails Ya!

"I can't believe I found this! When I was a kid, we used to pray to get sick so my grandmother would make this for us! It's my ultimate comfort drink. My cookbook says it's Hungarian and/or Austrian, but my grandmother was from Poland. She made it for us kids wiithout the brandy, but it's fabulous either way. (You can also use brandy extract in place of the brandy.) Kids will love it. I found it in "Jewish Cooking from Around the World" by Josephine Bacon. It's marked dairy and kosher for Pesach."

    Gogl Mogl is a Russian-Jewish classic. The versions I know use no egg whites, just egg yolks.

    This brings back childhood memories... I'm from Ukraine and my mom made this whenever I had a cold (i think it's of russian origin - even the name sounds like it would be russian) Don't remember liking it too much, but brandy might just be what it was missing. Oh, and as the other reviewer said, i think only egg yolks are used.


<img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <br> <br>Been cooking all my life. Both my parents were excellent cooks, my mother made a a wide range of things, my father was a gourmet Chinese chef long before it became stylish to cook Chinese. One of my earliest memories of cooking is helping my dad make egg rolls from scratch. I make a mean Peking Duck, too. <br>Got a husband, two kids, two dogs, two cats. We used to have two birds, but we've recently moved and didn't think they'd survive the trip. <br>I don't have a favorite cookbook, but I go through phases. I guess Joy of Cooking is the best for basic everything, and I'm very partial to The Gefilte Variations. Not only are the recipes fairly yummy, but the stories she tells are really delightful. <br><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg> <br> <br>
