Sweet plum dumplings

I just can’t find the perfect theme for my blog. I love that one as is simple but I wish my photos to be bigger. Just a little bit 🙂 I love bigger ones. Actually I love photos. Since ever. More than any text that was ever written.


Squash or pumpkin soup plus sweet plum dumplings and here is easy, simple but tasty lunch.

b0lmash potato made of 500 g potatoes 
1 slice butter
1 egg
1 cup white all-purpose flour
small pinch of nutmeg 
10 plums

Mix mash potato with butter, egg, flour and nutmeg with large wooden spoon in a nice and firm mas. Split it in 10 pieces. Fill each of it with plum – if they aren’t sweet enough add some sugar. Cook them in large pot (about 5 L) of salted water for about 10-15 minutes.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup bread crumbs
4 spoons vanilla sugar

Meanwhile melt butter in shallow pan and roast bread crumbs in it. When brown add vanilla sugar and cinnamon. Add some sugar if like. Spread plum dumplings in it and serve.

Have a nice day!

  2. I know exactly how you feel with those themes…simply toooooo many to choose from. You images are lovely just the way they are presented.
    I solved the choosing problem by running more than one blog 😀
    Did I tell you I’d love to have four of these delicious looking dumplings delivered by mail order tomorrow morning for breakfast?! – Ah, I wish!! Unfortunately in my home no one ever made anything like this…so I’ll have to get up and try myself!

    1. Maybe you are right, too many to chose from 🙂 I barely find time for one, can’t imagine to take care of more than one. You are so funny 😀
