Ingredients
400 grams
starchy Potatoes
130 grams
Pastry flour (plus more for the work surface)
1
12 pieces
Fruit (eg. strawberries, plums, apricots)
150 grams
70 grams
½ teaspoon
3 tablespoons
Mint leaf (for garnish)

Preparation steps

1.

Rinse the potatoes and cook in a pot of boiling salted water until knife-tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and peel the potatoes and  press through a potato ricer into a bowl. Let cool.

2.

Rinse the fruit. If using strawberries, hull them and if using fruits with pits, halve and remove the pits.

3.

Add the flour, egg and a pinch of salt to the potatoes and quickly knead with your hands until smooth. (If necessary, add a little extra flour, the dough shouldn't be sticky.)

4.

Cover the dough and let rest 20 minutes. Then divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 5 cm (approximately 2-inch) wide rope.

5.

Divide each rope into 6 portions.

6.

On a lightly floured work surface press each piece of dough flat and place a piece of fruit in the center of the flattened dough.

7.

Wrap the dough around the fruit and press to seal.

8.

Cook the dumplings in a pot of boiling water, turning them over occasionally until they bob to the surface and the dough is cooked through, about 20 minutes.

9.

In a pan, melt the butter, add the breadcrumbs and cook, stirring frequently until golden brown. Stir in the cinnamon and sugar.

10.

Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon, drain and serve topped with the bread crumb mixture in dish. Garnish with mint.
