Winter Pudding 5

28 Jun






Melkkos (roughly translated ‘Milk Food’) is a very old recipe which was/is made in the rural areas when the weather turns cold, and is made by cutting thinly rolled dough into thin strips and boiling it in milk until cooked and thickened. Sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and served warm.

There are people who throw in some boiled spaghetti as well, but I personally find this to be unnecessary as the recipe below makes a great winter pudding on it’s own.


500ml bread flour

1.5 litres milk

30ml butter

2 eggs

5ml salt

cinnamon sugar (mixture of ground cinnamon and sugar)

1. Sift the flour and salt together

2. Beat the eggs well and add 250ml of the milk and mix well

3. Stir the sifted flour mixture and add just enough milk to form a stiff dough

4. Knead until elastic, then roll the dough out thinly on a floured board

5. Sprinkle the dough with additional flour and cut into 3mm wide strips to make noodles

6. Heat the remaining milk to boiling point

7. Add the noodles and butter and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the noodles are cooked

8. Ladle the melkkos into soup bowls and serve hot, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar

      I have tried it with a bit of nutmeg thrown in as well. Even a vanilla pod dropped in while cooking makes a great tasting pudding.

      Try it. I will be surprised if you don’t use it often!
