1 kg floury/mealy potatoes, cooked with skin the day before
330 g flour
pinch of salt
30 cube sugars
Peel the potatoes and squash them through a ricer. Add the flour, egg and salt and knead a dough.
Cut the plums half-through and remove the stone. Replace it with two cube sugars.
Form a flat round piece of dough about half the size of your hand, place the plum with the cube sugars in it on it and form a dumpling.
Roll it in flour. (At THIS stage they´d be ready for the freezer, or just freeze the prepared plums)
Boil some salty water in a big pot. Carefully put the dumplings in the pot, but just as many as can swim on the surface later!
Now the water shouldn´t boil anymore, just \"move\". Push them lightly with a spoon every now and then so they don´t stick to the ground!
When they swim on the surface, wait for another 10 minutes, don´t forget to turn them so they´re done all around later.
In the meantime melt the butter in another pot and stir-fry some breadcrumbs until they´ve browned nicely.
Take the dumplings out of the water, put them on a plate and pour the buttery breadcrumbs over it. Some sugar on top and ready they are to be eaten!
Use other fruit! Blueberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, .... wouldn´t try apples, pears or pineapples, though. The fruit should get soft when cooked. Always use two cube sugars!
