The taste of Winter

The white here in the valley is gone and my boys are impatiently waiting for new snow to come. So I told them a story about a boy who ate every morning white bread with white butter and white sugar and a glass of white milk to celebrate the white to come… and for sure they want now such a breakfast, too…

So at the moment we fully enjoy the taste of winter. Oh, subhanallah, how good this is: oranges with walnuts, warm apple sauce, hot chocolate, sauerkraut and German Schupfnudeln.

Here you go with the Schupfnudel recipe (for 2 adults):


500g potatoes

300g white flour




Cook the whole potatoes until they are done.
Let them cool down a little and then peel off and smash or grate them into small.
Add flour and salt and mix together by hand until you get solid dough.
Now take some dough with your fingers and roll into small noodles (about 3cm long and 1cm thick). Work all dough like this.
Heat butter in a frying pan and put the noodles in. Fry them until they are golden brown and crusty.
You can eat them either sweet with sugar, cinnamon and apple sauce or salty with sauerkraut and onions, which you fry together with the noodles in the pan.


Enjoy – and blessed Friday to you!

    I’ve not tried Schupfnudeln but they sound delicious, especialy eaten sweet! Is that apple sauce in the photograph next to the Schupfnudeln? Please do share the recipe, even if it’s very simple!

  5. Assalamu alaikum,

    Your site ,particularly the photos of your lifestyle and surrounding enviroment ,is very inspiring,and it is so nice to see another Muslim mother’s creative pursuits at home with her children.
    My 5 kids have just made some Schupfnudeln for the first time and I am sitting here enjoying the results, both the salty and the sweet !
    Although unfortunately for the salty version we didn’t have any sauerkraut at hand so substituted it with (Australian)tomato sauce !
    We look forward to trying out more of your simple recipes !
