Plum Dumplings
by reteteculinare

from Munich, Germany

1 cup flour
4-6 medium potatoes
1 teaspoon vegetable or canola oil
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
10-12 plums
2-3 spoons breadcrumbs
2 teaspoon butter/oil
powder sugar

1. Boil the washed potatoes.

2. Discard the water, peel the potatoes, cut in cubes and mash the potatoes with the oil, using a fork. Let it cool.

3. Mix the potatoes with the flour, salt and sugar, until you obtain a malleable dough. Roll in a round and long shape. Cut in 1/2 - 1 inch pieces. Take each piece in your palm and add a plum (or a half, depending on how large the plums are) in the middle. Roll the dough around the plum. Set the dumplings on the side.

4. In a large pot boil approx 3 liters (or about 3 quarts) water. Turn the heat to medium and place the dumplings with care. Boil aprox. 20 minutes.

5. Separately, on a pan, melt the butter/oil and fry the breadcrumbs (until golden). Keep warm and be careful not to overcook. Dry the dumplings and dredge them through the breadcrumbs. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon.
