  • About


  • Kuchen Dough
  • ½ lb. stewed prunes
  • ¼ cup butter


Make Kuchen Dough No. 1. Let rise. Toss on floured board, and mould into small, thick noodles or biscuits-place them in a closely covered iron kettle, with plenty butter at the bottom and not too close together. Let rise in a warm place and then pour over a cup of cold water, milk or prune juice, cover and place in a moderately hot oven and let cook until you hear it fry and the steam or water has all evaporated. The noodles will then be brown on the bottom. Remove the cover and let them brown on the top.

Serve them with Caramel Sauce, stewed prunes, or any other dried fruit sauce.
