DIRECTIONS

  • Using an electric mixer, blend the eggs, lard or oil, water and milk.
  • Stir the flour together with 1/2 tsp of the salt and the baking powder in a dry bowl.
  • Blend this mixture into the liquid.
  • Mix well and set aside for a moment. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil and add 2 tsp of salt. Using a spaetzle maker or spaetzle press squeeze the dough into the boiling water.
  • Use about 1/3 of the dough for each batch.
  • When the dumplings float to the surface, they are done. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place in a colander.
  • They can be served with way with paprika gravy or pan fried with a little butter, just until they are a bit golden, and topped with parsley.
  • Note: These dumplings can also be made by using piping bag or dropping very small amounts from a spoon.
  • The latter takes much longer.
