When I was a child "Mohnnudeln" (poppy seed noodles) was one of my favourite foods. They are sweet, filling and can be eaten as main course or dessert.
Inspired by this classic Austrian dish, I created cinnamon noodles for you. A simple potato noodle recipe with a twist.
Ingredients (for four portions):
- 500g potatoes
- 100g flour
- 50g butter
- 1 egg yolk
- a pinch of salt
- 50g caster sugar
Boil the potatoes, peel and grate them. Put the grated potatoes in a bowl adding the flour, butter, salt and yolk.
Knead the ingredients. Roll out the dough and cut into 3 - 4 cm long pieces. Shape them in your hands until they look more or less like slugs. (I know, I know... could not think of a better word)
Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and let the little potato noodles simmer for about 5 minutes or until they start floating.
Take the potato slugs out of the water and set aside. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a pan.
Fry the noodles in the pan on low heat until they get slightly crispy. Add sugar and cinnamon to taste.
Eat immediately and enjoy.
