Servings 6


  • 600 gr. of flour
  • 8 eggs
  • 200 ml. of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 30 gr. of butter


  • Mix flour, eggs, milk and salt with a wooden spoon or a food processor for 10 minutes until you get a homogeneous paste. Leave to rest 1 hour. Tips : After 1 hour you can see bubble if you mix really quickly with a wooden spoon from top to bottom.
  • Bring to boil a large casserole dish. Place the Sp├Ątze-grater on top of the casserole. Pour some of the spaetzle paste and move back and forth quickly or more slowly depending on the size of the spaetzle you want to make.
  • When they come to the surface, they are done !
  • Put them little by little in a bowl filled with cold water, so the spaetzli do not stick when cooling down and reserve in another recipient.
  • Melt butter in a large frying pan and brown spaetzli before serving.
