Milchreis Auflauf with Peaches

by Ruth Lapetite
(Würzburg)


My Grandmother has wonderful recipes and I just love to cook after them. I usually don't give out her recipes, but for this time I'm making an exception, since quite a few have begged for it.
As a strict catholic she lived after the rule, no meat on Fridays. Sometimes she made fish or a simple veggie meal, but on some Fridays she made a sweet dish like this:

Milchreis Auflauf with Peaches

1 Liter Milk + a dash of salt
1 Vanilla pod
250 gr. Milchreis
100 gr Sugar
4 Eggs
Lemon zest
250 gr. Topfen (Quark)
2 big cans of Peaches
Butter + breadcrumbs (or semolina)

Bring to boil milk with salt and pour in the rinsed rice. Lower heat and let it simmer for ca 25 minutes (the past 5-10 min I turn off the stove). Let it cool off.

Cut one can of peaches in slices and the other in cubes.

Separate egg white from yolk.
Cut the vanilla pod lengthwise, scrape out the core for the mixture.
Whisk yolk with sugar until sugar is resolved, then add zest.
Add Topfen spoon for spoon and then cooled off rice spoon for spoon.

Whisk egg white until stiff and fold in the beaten egg white into the mixture. Also carefully fold in the diced peaches.
Butter and breadcrumb an ovenproof baking dish and pour the mixture in it. Cover it with sliced Peaches.

350°F - 45-50 minutes...

Out of the past
by: Theresa

I grew up having Auf Lauf. My Oma was Bavarian and Auf Lauf was always greeted with enthusiasm. Ours was never as fancy as this … just a mixture of eggs, milk, and flour, baked in a sizzling buttered cast iron skillet. My grandson rates them by the quantity of browned butter on the finished product, but he’d still eat it every day.
