Light Dortmund Beer Soup (Dortmunder Bier Suppe)
Ingredients:

6 -8 sugar cubes
1 lemon, sliced into quarters
2 pints german lager beer
1 large cinnamon stick
4 cloves
1 pinch salt (about 1/8 teaspoon)
4 teaspoons cornflour (corn starch)
14 cup water
4 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon caster sugar (granulated)
cinnamon sugar (for garnish)
simmering water (to cook the "snow dumplings")

Instruction:

Rub the sugar lumps over the surface of the lemon. Bring the beer to the boil with the cinnamon stick, cloves and sugar lumps. Add a pinch of salt. Blend the cornflour with a little water (1/4 cup) and add it to the soup, to thicken it. When soup has thickened, turn the heat down very low, wait a few minutes, and then whisk in the 4 beaten egg yolks. DO NOT reboil the soup or the yolks will curdle. Keep the soup on a very slow simmer while preparing the"snow dumplings". Whisk the egg whites with 1 Tablespoon of sugar"to a very stiff snow" (stiff enough to hold shape, but not dry). Into a pan of simmering water, drop spoonfuls of the snow and allow them to set (like a dumpling). When set, remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Remove cinnamon stick from soup, and ladle into bowls. The"snow dumplings" are then placed on top of the soup and sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon sugar.
