Milk Noodles

I don't know why, but I've been thinking a lot about the foods my grandmother used to make when we were growing up. She came to this country in the late 50s and didn't do a whole lot of German cooking. She made a mean rueben sandwich and an incredible hot potato salad, but there wasn't a whole lot of ethnic cuisine she passed on. I've managed to find a few recipes here and there that grandma has said taste like something her mom used to make, but sadly few family recipes.

One I've been looking for a long time was Milk Noodles. It was something we had for breakfast. Sweet milk and noodles. I don't know what prompted me to look, but the internet is an amazing thing...

NOODLES WITH MILK

1 3/4 pt. milk
A little salt
A knob of butter
9 oz. noodles
2 well heaped tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Put the salt and the fat into a pan with the milk and bring to the boil. Add the noodles and simmer gently until tender. Serve the noodles mixed with the sugar and cinnamon or sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. Cooking time: About 30 minutes. The noodles may be served with bread crumbs and stewed dried fruit instead of the sugar and cinnamon.
