"I had my reserves about it when I first stumbled upon this recipe, but I was glad I saved it when I needed a side dish for Glazed Keilbasa. This soup was really good. The taste reminded me of egg drop soup, and the way the cake batter dumplings fell into the soup gave it a rather interesting look. A great simple soup to go along with any meatie main dish."
