Initially from the Joy of Cooking.
1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
pinch of ground nutmeg
Beat together in a seperate bowl
2 large eggs
1/2 cup water or milk
Add to the flour mixture. Beat with a wooden spoon.
Bring 6 cups of salted water or broth to a boil. In my opinion this
should be 4″ of liquid rather than absolute measure.
Force the batter through a spatzle machine (or potato ricer) into
boiling liquid. Wait until all the bits float to the top, then remove
with a strainer.
I then like to let a small amount at a time dry in a colander.
After 5+ minutes of drying, lightly fry in butter with a splash of mustard.
