For the homemade noodles, the preparation is incredibly simple, and yet a philosophy for themselves. Which flour one takes, for example. There is even your own spaetzle-flour. Usually, the manufacturer's special blends of flour and semolina or Dunst or are soft wheat and hard wheat. The mixture provides the necessary stiffness of the dough, and has the advantage that the noodles are nicely firm to the bite. Alternatively, You can also use a wheat flour Type 550. I am also always there with us in the Rhineland spaetzle-flour is not available everywhere is.

In addition to the flour question, but there is also the issue of texture. It is, therefore, one rubs or presses? Say, you want the scraped thickness of the Spätzle from the Board (requires a lot of Practice)? Short, knubbelige spaetzle with spaetzle grater pressed grated (spätzle) or long spaetzle with spaetzle press? No matter how delicious they always are. In the case of the Swabians, the last two variants are hot by the way "Lazy women-Spätzle" – the nerve ;-).
