    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 cups flour, sifted with a pinch of baking powder
    • 4 slices white bread, cut into cubes


    1. 1
      Beat eggs, salt& milk in a large mixing bowl; add flour gradually.
    2. 2
      Continue beating with a large spoon (the dough must be smooth& stiff enough to hold its shape).
    3. 3
      Stir in bread cubes last.
    4. 4
      Have a clean, wet towel ready.
    5. 5
      Shape the dough with wet hands into an oblong, roll in a towel& drop into a large kettle of salted boiling water.
    6. 6
      Boil, covered, for 45 minutes.
    7. 7
      Remove the towel& slice the dumpling 1/2 inch thick (if not sliced immediately, the steam cannot escape& the dumplings will be soggy& hard).
    8. 8
      Keep hot until ready to serve.

      Easy recipe to follow - my first time making dumplings. Family liked them. I might add just a tad bit more milk next time. When forming dough it is dry - which is difficult to get used to.

      Thank you for publishing this very authentic recipe! I lost the original that my Baba had passed on to my mother and missed this simple wonderful food, now I can make my own! I add caraway seeds to mine and they turn out the same as my Baba used to make! Great with Chicken, Pork or Veal roast and sauerkraut!
