Sweet AngelĀ Hair

Both my boys love this sweet treat for breakfast. Normally something Ba (grandmother) makes for them on demand!!! I’ve made it once since she left, because it’s probably not the healthiest! No harm in it every once in a while though and it tastes delicious, especially if you have a sweet tooth.




  • 2 handfuls of Angel Hair pasta
  • a knob of butter
  • 300 – 400 ml of warmed milk
  • 1 tbsp of sugar



  1. Melt the butter in a medium sized saucepan
  2. Add the pasta and gently toast in the butter until it takes on a browner colour
  3. Add the warmed milk and sugar then simmer on a low heat for about 10-12 minutes
  4. The milk will be absorbed slowly by the pasta
  5. Add more milk if the pasta is not quite cooked – the consistency should not be too runny – a bit like cereal ( just enough milk to go with the pasta)
  6. If it’s not sweet enough add more sugar
  7. Cool slightly then serve
