Milchreis Casserole / Rice Pudding Casserole

I tried something new!!! And you can also guess what I had for dinner and for breakfast today. I made a Milchreis casserole, a kind of a sweet dish you can also eat when it's cold. All you need for it is a pot of Milchreis (check the link), and three/four eggs, 250g (9 oz) Quark, a pound or more of apples, some cinnamon, 4 tbs. sugar. Next time I will definitely take more apples but it was everything I had at home and I got a cold a couple of days ago so I don't feel like going outside to get some more.

  1. Cook the rice for about 30 minutes until it's ready. I've already wrote how to cook the German Milchreis. This link shows you the recipe. Double the amount of ingredients (250g/9oz rice and 1 lit./2 pints of milk)
  2. In the meantime clean the apples and cut them in small pieces.
  3. Separate the eggs (yolks from the white), beat the egg whites until stiff. Put it aside.
  4. With a mixer mix the yolks with the sugar and cinnamon and add the Quark.
  5. Add the cooked rice and the apples to the egg-Quark-mixture.
  6. Butter a baking pan I took a 12x12 inches/30x30 cm and put the mixture inside.
  7. Bake around 40 minutes at 200°C/390°F.
  8. Serve with compote or with a fruits mouse.
It's great as a sweet main dish but also as a dessert. It's delicious when it's served with some vanilla ice. Enjoy!

Happy New Year 5774

On the 4th of September 2013 the celebration of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Ha'shana) started and I was invited for the evening to my friends. I took one of the last trains going from Tel Aviv before the festival. The rule is that during the festivals no trains and no public transportation works in Israel. If you don't have a car - you are stuck in the middle of nowhere. I was really afraid to miss the last train so I went a little bit earlier even if I was still in the middle of shopping. 

When I arrived my friends had everything prepared and the food was SWEET. It's a custom to eat a lot of sweet stuff, like apples with honey - to wish each other a sweet and good year. So happy New Year, shana tova u'metuka - let it be as interesting as my last was.

אז שנה טובה ומתוקה
