Knoepfle- Oder Spaetzleteig (Basic Spaetzle D

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: German, Pasta

 Ingredients List

  • 500 g Flour (4 1/2 cups less 1
  • -Tbsp)
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 c Water
  • Salt


Combine all ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. One part at a
time, force through a spaetzle shaver and let drop straight into boiling
water. As soon as the spaetzle rise to the surface, remove them with a
slotted spoon and rinse in warm water.

In olden days, the spaetzle dough was forced through a three- legged sieve,
by means of stirring. This resulted in the so- called 'Knoepfle' (little
buttons). Another method - more common in the Wuertemberg area - is to put
the dough on a wooden board and scraping off small slivers of dough, which
then results in elongated spaetzle, similar to the ones produced by a
spaetzle press.

Serves 4.
