Do you also have your dishes with this instant feel-good-guarantee? In my opinion, it is usually about those simple dishes that remind us of our childhood. However, my favourite dish when I feel I urgently need a dose of coziness and well-being is this Flädlesuppe, which is literally a soup of small pancakes. It is a regional Swabian dish, which can be found in Austria as well under the name of Frittatensuppe. It is a totally easy and quick recipe, not spectacular at all – but it immediately warmes stomach and heart.
Ingredients and preparation
It is basically sliced thin pancakes (not American pancakes, but more like crêpes) in a vegetable or beef stock. For my basic pancake recipe (2 p., about 6 pancakes) I use 200g flour, 2 eggs, about 300 ml milk and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Of course you can vary this, f. ex. by adding some chopped parsley or chives. After baking the pancakes, let them cool down for a bit and then roll up two or three together and slice them more or less thinnly (some people make a competition out of this, but you really don’t have to). Put a handful of them in a soup plate or bowl and pour stock over them. That’s it!
You can store left over Flädle by drying them on a big plate and filling them into a jar or plastic bag. But, as it`s really not rocket science, I would advise to make them fresh each time.
