Mothers-day in Austria! Since my mother usually stands up between 3 and 5 am, making breakfast was out of the question. But she loves ‘Griesschmarren’ – so lunch was on me.
Happy Mothers-day to all mothers, grandmothers and will-be-mothers out there! Enjoy the special treatment – you deserved it!
[If you wonder why my raisins look funky – it’s because they are dried Inka berries. Turns out my stomach doesn’t react well to anything grape related – but that’s easily supplemented :)
SEMOLINA DESSERT – GRIESSCHMARREN
_ put a pinch of salt into the milk and bring to a boil
_ add semolina
_ let cool completely [better to be on the dry than the too soft side]
_ heat butter
_ pluck into pieces with a fork
_ add raisins, sugar, vanilla sugar and lemon zest
_ serve with powdered sugar and some compote
