“Delicious, creamy and simple. You can add rum-soaked raisins when you add the milk if you wish. I serve it with crushed-berry syrup or applesauce. This is the way all of my husband's family (in Germany) makes it. They generally serve it as a main dish rather than a desert, but cut down the sugar a bit.”
