Pronunciation of Swabian words: A closing 'e' (in '-le', '-che' or '-sche') sounds like the 'a' in
'ago'.

Ingredients (4 servings)
200 g flour (1 3/4 cups)
2 eggs
1/4 l milk (1 cup plus 1 tbsp)
1 pn salt
fat for frying

Instructions
Mix the flour and milk, then add the eggs, and season with salt. In a skillet, melt a little fat
over medium heat. As soon as the fat is hot, hold the skillet at a slight angle and pour in the
batter in such a manner that the whole bottom of the skillet is covered with a thin layer. As
soon as the bottom of the pancake develops yellow spots, carefully loosen the edges with an
egg turner, then flip the pancake to cook the other side. Once the 'Fldle' is done, set it aside
for cooling. Pancakes are usually eaten with a sweet coverage (sugar, marmelade) to the
individual taste.
Variation: If the 'Fldle' is to be used in 'Fldle'-soup, roll it up and cut it into very thin slices.
Put into hot broth, and adjust seasoning to taste, with nutmeg, chopped parsley or chives, etc.
Variation: For 'Kratzer', repeatedly cut the pancake (with the egg turner) in the skillet during
the cooking process, and move the pieces to a second skillet, where they are once more
sauted in a little butter. Just before serving, dust with sugar. Serve with stewed fruit.
Non-sweetened 'Kratzer' is also a popular side dish for meat dishes with gravy.

Ingredients (4 servings)
3 c flour; non-bleached
1 ts salt
4 ea eggs; large (2 more for Kssptzle)

1/2 c water, or more


1/8 c butter (if roasted)
1/3 c Gouda cheese (for Kssptzle)

Instructions
Sift flour, salt and nutmeg together in a bowl. Pour eggs and 1/4 cup water into middle of
flour mixture, beat with a wooden spoon. Add enough water to make the dough slightly
sticky, yet keeping it elastic and stiff. Using a sptzle machine or a colander with medium
holes, press the noodles into a large pot full of boiling salted water. Cook noodles in the water
until they rise to the surface. Lift noodles out, put them shortly under fresh (warm) water and
drain them in a sifter. If you like, you can brown them in melted butter over low heat (and
add some grated Gouda cheese and another two eggs to get 'Kssptzle' ).
back to Contents

Ingredients (4 servings)
Dough:
2 3/4 c flour
4 eggs
salt
Filling:
1 tb butter
6 strips medium-lean bacon, cut into cubes
3 md onions, diced
1/4 lb fresh sausage meat (preferably from sweet Italian sausage)
1 hard roll, without crust, and best when stale
1/2 lb cooked spinach
1/2 lb ground meat or lightly smoked farm sausage
1 c Bauernbratwurst or leftover roast, stew meat, etc., diced
3 eggs
3 tb to 4 tb chopped fresh parsley
salt and freshly ground black pepper
grated nutmeg
1 egg
3 tb canned milk

Instructions

Certainly if anyone were to insist that 'Maultaschen' were the most delicious of all Swabian
specialties, most Swabians would hardly be prepared to deny it. The following recipe is
typical but far from definitive, especially where the ingredients for the filling are concerned.
Feel free to use whatever you have on hand or whatever your fancy (or your conscience)
dictates.
Dough: Combine the flour, eggs, and salt in a bowl and mix to make a pasta dough. Then add
a little water and knead until it has a firm but elastic consistency.
Filling: Melt the butter in a skillet and fry the bacon with the onions until both are quite
translucent. Combine the bacon mixture with the sausage meat. Moisten the hard roll in
water, press dry, and put through the meat grinder (better than the food mill or food
processor), along with the bacon mixture, cooked spinach, ground meat or smoked farm
sausage, leftover roast, etc. Then fold in the eggs, parsley, and seasonings; mix together. The
filling should be very spicy indeed.
Assembly: On a board that has been sprinkled with flour, roll out the dough into rectangular
sheets (about twice as wide as you want your 'Maultaschen' to be). Take a tablespoon
measure and put little dabs of filling at equally spaced 3-inch intervals all down the middle of
one side of the sheet of dough. Mix together the egg and canned milk and apply it to the
spaces in between, the outer edge and the fold line. Fold the plain half of the sheet of dough
over to cover the filling, press down firmly on the spaces around the little packets of filling,
and use a pastry wheel or knife to separate the packets into 3-inch square or diamond-shaped
'Maultaschen'. The process is similar to making ravioli. Cook thoroughly in beef stock or
boiling salted water for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending upon the size of the 'Maultaschen'.
They'll bob up to the surface when they're done; remove them with a slotted spoon and allow
to drain.
Serving suggestions: Cut an onion or two into half-rings, fry in butter until golden brown and
empty the contents of the skillet over the 'Maultaschen' on the serving dish. Serve with
slippery potato salad or a mixed green salad.
Swabian Won Ton Soup: Serve a couple of 'Maultaschen' in a bowl of hearty beef broth; garnish
liberally with finely chopped onion.
Swabian Fried Won Tons: Allow the boiled 'Maultaschen' to cool, then cut into strips. Saut in a
skillet until crisp on the outside. Serve with potato salad.
Maultaschen Croque Monsieur: Arrange several portions in an ovenproof casserole, cover with
boiled ham and a couple of slices of cheese, and heat in the oven until the cheese reaches the
desired consistency. Serve with green salad.

Ingredients (4 servings)

4 chopped, stale kaiser-type rolls


1 onion, finely chopped
150 g ground liver (5 oz)
2 tb marjoram
1 egg
1/8 l milk (1/2 cup plus 1/2 tbsp)
salt
pepper
ground nutmeg
1 (small) bunch parsley, chopped
a little bit grated lemon peel
a little butter for sauting

Instructions
Soak the rolls in lukewarm milk. Saut the onion and parsley in butter, then add - along with
the other ingredients - to the soaked rolls and mix well into a firm mass. If the mixture is too
loose, add a bit of plain bread crumbs. Shape into dumplings, put into barely boiling water,
and let steep for 25 minutes. Transfer to clear beef broth and serve.
back to Contents

Ingredients (4 servings)
500 g flour (4 1/2 cups less 1 tbsp)
1/4 l milk (1 cup plus 1 tbsp)
40 g (fresh) yeast (1.4 oz)
1 ds salt
150 g butter or, better yet, clarified butter (2/3 cup)
1 to 2 eggs

Instructions
Heat the milk a bit and then dissolve the yeast in it. Make a well in the flour, and pour the
yeast mixture into it. Let rest for 1/2 hour. Then, add the remaining milk and the salt, and
knead well. Vigorously beat the dough until it forms bubbles, then cover, and in a warm spot,
let rest for 1 hour. Cut off fist size pieces, and - on a floured pastry board - let these pieces rise
one more time, for another 15 minutes.
In a wide pot, melt the fat, and then add warm, salted water to a depth of about 3/4 inch.
Add the dumplings, arranged in one layer, touching each other. Put a lid on the pot, and

additionally seal the edges - where the lid rests on the pot - with damp cloths in order to keep
the steam inside. Bake at low heat. The dumplings should be done in about 20 minutes, and
have the highly desirable hard, brown crust on the bottom.
'Dampfnudle' may be served sour, with sauerkraut, or sweet, with stewed fruit or vanilla
sauce.
Variation 'Dampfnudle en dr Bria': Prepare as above, but prior to arranging them in the pot,
thoroughly dust the bottom of each dumpling with flour. During the steaming process, the
flour and water will form a whitish gravy ('Bria').

Ingredients (6 servings)
1 pk yeast; active, dry
1 1/2 c water, warm, 110-120 degrees
1 ts salt
1 tb sugar
4 c flour; non-bleached
1 ea egg; large, beaten
salt; coarse

Instructions
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add salt and sugar to yeast mixture. Blend in flour and knead
dough until smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes. Cover and let dough rise until double in bulk.
Punch down. Cut dough into small pieces and roll into ropes. Twist ropes into pretzel shapes
and place on greased cookie sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush pretzels with egg and sprinkle
with coarse salt. Allow pretzels to rise until almost double in bulk. Bake at 425 degrees F for
10 to 15 minutes or until browned. Best if eaten immediately. If not, store in airtight container.
Makes 12 6-inch pretzels.

Ingredients (4 servings)

200 g flour (1 3/4 cups)


2 eggs
1/8 l milk (1/2 cup plus 1/2 tbsp)
1 pn salt
50 g lard (3 1/2 tbsp)
apples or cracklings

Instructions
From the Ries area.
Make a pancake batter (mix the flour and milk, then add the eggs, and season with salt) and
pour into a lard-greased bread pan. Top with sliced apples or with cracklings, and bake.
If topped with fruit, dust with sugar; if with cracklings, salt, and serve.
back to Contents

Ingredients (4 servings)
Cracklings:
2 lbs fresh pork bacon (the fatty layer right underneath the skin)
1/4 cup milk or water
Dumplings:
1 c cracklings
2 eggs
2 tb flour
125 g plain bread crumbs (4.5 oz)
greens (chopped parsley and/or chives)
seasonings (pepper, paprika, marjoram)

Instructions
Cracklings: Cut the bacon into 3/4-inch cubes and put into a tall pot which must not get filled
more than halfway up (to prevent the large amount of foam during the rendering process
from running over and spilling). Heat up slowly, else the bacon will stick to the bottom and
scorch. As soon as there is a little liquid fat covering the bottom of the pot, add milk or water,
and heat up more, constantly stirring. Let the cracklings brown a little bit more, then pour off
the liquid lard, through a sieve, into an earthenware pot. Warm cracklings are very popular
in-between meal.

Dumplings: Mix the cracklings, eggs, seasonings, and greens into a pliable mass. Add flour
and breadcrumbs. Let the dough rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Then shape dumplings, and slip
into barely boiling water, and let steep. Transfer to hot beef broth and serve.

Ingredients (8 servings)
1 egg, separated
2 tb milk
50 g flour (1/2 cup less 1 tbsp)
1 ds salt
10 tb liquid honey
fat for frying

Instructions
From grandmother's more thrifty times; rarely encountered today. From the Oberallgu
region.
Make a batter of the flour, egg yolk, milk, salt, and sugar. Beat the egg whites, and add to the
mixture. Take five wooden spoons and stick the handles about 1/3 to 3/4 inch deep into the
dough, twisting the handles as you do so. Immediately transfer them to fat that has been
heated to 390 degrees F. As soon as the dough has browned, once again dip into the dough,
then back into the hot fat. Repeat the process 5 to 6 times. When the very outside layer has
turned crisp and brown, remove the pastry from the spoon handle, fill with honey, and serve
hot, dusted with crushed sugar.

stand about 15 minutes. Divide dough into thirds. On lightly floured surface, roll each
portion into 8" square. Let stand for 1 minute. Dust a springerle (little horse) mold or rolling
pin with additional flour. Press mold on dough hard enough to make a clear design; repeat
for the remaining dough (Roll springerle rolling pin on dough, pressing hard enough to make
a clear design.) With a sharp knife, cut the rolled cookies apart. Place on a lightly floured
surface; Cover with a towel and let stand about 6 hours or overnight. Sprinkle a greased
cookie sheet with crushed aniseed. Brush excess flour from cookies. With finger, rub bottom
of each cookie lightly with cold water. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake in 300 degree

(butter or whipped cream)

Ingredients (8 servings)
Cake:
6 ea eggs; large
1 c sugar
1 ts vanilla extract
4 oz semi-bitter baking chocolate, melted
1 c flour; sifted
Syrup:
1/4 c sugar
1/3 c water
2 tb kirsch liquor
Filling: (butter cream)
1 1/2 c confectioners' sugar
1/3 c butter; unsalted
1 ea egg yolk; large
2 tb kirsch liquor
Filling: (whipped cream)
3 c cream; heavy, whipped
100 g confectioners' sugar
2 tb kirsch liquor
vanilla sugar
Topping:
2 c sour cherries; canned, drain
2 tb confectioners' Sugar
1 c cream; heavy, whipped
8 oz semisweet chocolate bar (1)

Instructions
Cake: Beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla together until thick and fluffy, about 10 minutes.
Alternately fold chocolate and flour into the egg mixture, ending with flour. Pour the batter
into 3 8-inch cake pans that have been well greased and floured. Bake in a preheated 350
degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out

clean. Cool cakes in pans for 5 minutes; turn out on racks to cool completely. Instead of
making three thin cakes in different pans you can make a thicker one and cut it into three
pieces.
Syrup: Make syrup by mixing together sugar and water and boiling for 5 minutes. When
syrup has cooled, stir in kirsch. Prick the cake layers and pour syrup over all 3 layers. If you
want to have a lighter and less sweet cake use simply the kirsch liquor instead of the syrup.
Filling: To make the butter-cream filling, beat together sugar and butter until well blended.
Add egg yolk; beat until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Fold in Kirsch. For the
whipped cream filling fold the sugar and the kirsch liquor into the whipped cream.
Assembly: To assemble cake, place 1 layer on a cake plate. Spread with cream filling. Using
3/4 cup of the cherries, which have been patted dry, drop cherries evenly over cream. Place
second layer on cake. Repeat. Place third layer on top. Fold 2 confectioners' sugar into the
whipped cream. Cover the sides and top of the cake with whipped cream. Decorate top of
cake with remaining 1/2 cup cherries. To make chocolate curls from chocolate bar, shave (at
room temperature) with a vegetable peeler. Refrigerate curls until ready to use. Press
chocolate curls on sides of cake and sprinkle a few on the top. Chill until serving time.
