About Polish Milk Soup

Nowadays, Poles usually buy cereals in grocery stores. However, when I speak with my grandmas, they say that homemade Polish milk soup that is made from scratch was often served at their homes when they were kids.

Zupa mleczna needs to be sweet. That’s why you will need to add sugar to your noodles. If it’s not sweet enough for you, add more sugar straight to the warm milk and mix.

Tips For Making Polish Milk Soup

There Are 3 Ways Of Making Polish Milk Soup.

Dropping Noodles Straight To The Hot Milk.

Traditionally, you are adding drop noodles straight to the hot milk. I don’t like doing it that way, as the soup doesn’t look good. I think it’s much better to make your kluski separately, in boiling hot water, then adding it to the milk (cold or hot).

However, you can simply make the mixture that you can see in my Polish milk soup recipe below, then slowly pour it to the hot milk, stirring all the time. Your zupa mleczna will be ready to eat straight away!

Making Drop Noodles Separately.

If you go the second way, you will need to pour your noodle mixture into the boiling hot water, then add it to the milk.

Making It Pillow Cereal-Like.

Last but not least, my favorite method. Simply fry the pancake, then dice it and add to the cold or hot milk.

Make It Plain Or Chocolate.

If you add cocoa to your drop noodles mixture, you will get the cocoa flavor. You can also make it plain, or add a few drops of your favorite extract, f.e. vanilla extract.

Alternative Way Of Making Polish Milk Soup

Some people in Poland simply cover chałka or any bread roll with warm milk and add some sugar. That’s their recipe for Polish milk soup and it’s delicious as well!

  1. I remember my Polish uncles coming home from work and scalding some milk, adding a little sugar, and crumbling crackers up in the bowl. It always smelled good but I never tried it.
