Traditional Salzburger Nockerl Recipe

Legend has it that the famous Salzburg prince archbishop of Raitenau loved his mistress Salome mainly because of her exquisite Salzburger Nockerl. The peaks of the Nockerl look like mountain peaks and they are supposed to represent the hillsides surrounding the city of Salzburg: Festungsberg, Mönchsberg and Kapuzinerberg. The dusting of powdered sugar resembles the snow-covered peaks.


4 servings:

7 egg whites
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
1 1/2 tbsp flour
zest of half a lemon
Raspberry sauce or jam or custard


  1. pre-heat oven to 200°C
  2. beat the egg whites, gradually adding the sugar, until they are very stiff
  3. quickly beat in the two yolks, zest, and vanilla sugar without beating too hard
  4. fold in the flour carefully
  5. butter two oven-proof dishes (you may now line the bottom of the dish with jam or custard)
  6. heap three large dollops of the egg mass into the dish, sitting alongside each other, slightly offset
  7. “mount” them to resemble three little mountains
  8. bake in the oven for 10 minutes until your “Nockerl” have become slightly brown on top
