Serves 4-6
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, for garnish

Preheat oven to broil. Lightly grease a 9″x13″ glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Using a large pan over medium-high heat, scald milk just until wisps of steam appear. Do not boil.

In a large bowl, add flour and salt. Add eggs and, using your hands, mix until consistency of coarse cornmeal.

When milk is scalded, gradually add flour mixture to milk, while stirring. When it gets to the consistency of a thick soup, remove from heat and pour into prepared baking pan. You may not have to use all the flour mixture.

Broil until golden brown. Remove and immediately serve onto a plate. Pat with gobs of butter, sprinkle with a good amount of sugar. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
