Bircher Muesli, Storchen Zurich
This is the recipe from my friends at the Hotel Storchen in Zurich. The recipe here is a small fraction of what they prepare every day at the Storchen for the elaborate and delicious breakfast buffet. Makes about 4 servings
1 cup uncooked rolled oats (regular oatmeal)
1/2 cup ground hazelnuts
1 cup plain yogurt, any fat content
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar, or less, to taste
2 large Granny Smith apples, rinsed and grated but not peeled
Juice of half a small lemon, strained
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream, lightly whipped
2 pints mixed berries such as hulled and rinsed small strawberries (or slice large ones), blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries
- The night before, combine the oats, hazelnuts, yogurt, and milk and stir together well. Cover and refrigerate.
- Next morning stir in the sugar, grated apples, and fold in the whipped cream and berries.
- Don’t be too gentle with the berries – if they bruise a little as you fold them in they’ll release some of their juices to color the Muesli.
