Biersuppe (Beer Soup) Recipe

From grandmother's more thrifty times; rarely encountered today.

Step 1

Brown the flour in the butter, then add beer. Add cinnamon and sugar and bring to a boil. Whisk together the egg yolk and milk and stir into the hot (but no longer boiling) beer. Strain, and serve with toasted slices of bread.
