recipe-a-week #7: pfitzauf

We hosted a midwinter potluck on the weekend, and had a lot of fun seeing some friends we hadn't in awhile. Frankly, we just wanted to see everyone - it seems as though the winter keeps everyone home and isolated, and we missed everyone. We're definitely going to do it again, and hopefully soon! One of our friends who came is an amazing cook, as well as an extraordinarily dedicated teacher. And she's one of the loveliest people I think I've ever met. Did you catch that she's a great cook? (She even has one of those fancy little blowtorches!) Oh, and she's German, so I was especially excited that she brought a German dessert. It was heavenly, and I can't wait to try making it myself.

Pfitzauf

250 g flour
pinch of salt
1/2 litre milk
5 eggs
125 g butter

Mix the flour with a bit of milk and the salt. Boil the rest of the milk. Add the eggs and the hot milk. Melt the butter. Butter the pans and add the remaining melted butter to the dough. Only fill the pans halfway. Don't add sugar, rather put some icing sugar on after baking. Bake for about 30 minutes at 200 Celsius. Serve with whipped cream. Enjoy!

A special note to Ingrid (to know what I'm talking about, see the comments on this post and this post): I will freely apologize for liking Mariah Carey's Christmas album. That is clearly a problem with me. But Sam Roberts? Not liking him is your problem, my friend. I just pre-ordered their new album. Heh heh. And I had fun at lunch with you today. :)

Heh heh. We don't disagree on much, but I guess we'll have to disagree about little, tiny, miniature, Lilliputian Sam Roberts. :)

Oh yes, and lunch was so much fun! We must do it again.

AND those pfitz-whatevers were so tasty! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
