Süß wie die Liebe...

... und zart wie ein Kuss

(Sweet as love…..and soft as a kiss)



6 egg whites
60 g sugar, plus a little extra for sprinkling
3 egg yolks
30 g flour
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
2 tbsp cream
Lingonberries (cranberries), or raspberries
A little icing sugar, to serve

  1. Grease an ovenproof dish with butter, and sprinkle with a little sugar. Spread the cream and the berries over the middle of the dish.
  2. Beat the egg whites until they stand up in peaks then gradually add in the 60 g of sugar.
  3. Combine and then lightly fold into the egg whites the 3 egg yolks, the flour and the vanilla sugar.
  4. Place mixture in the dish in 3 large mounds*.
  5. Cook in a pre-heated oven at 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4 for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. (Important: Do not use a fan oven.)
  6. Sprinkle a little icing sugar over the Nockerl, and serve immediately.

My notes:
  1. Goes well with a warm, light, fruity sauce, or custard.

  3. *The 3 peaks in the finished dish are meant to represent the 3 local mountains around Salzburg, the Mönchsberg, the Kapuzinerberg and the Gaisberg.
