I have not tried this recipe but it is just about the way my family makes the dumpling up to the point of dressing it. We top the dumpling with cottage cheese (drained), brown sugar, melted butter and the browned bread crumbs.

Haven't tried this particular recipe, but... We have always cooked up dumplings, put them in a bowl (plain). Then... here's the amazing part... poured melted butter over top, buttered breadcrumbs and then icing sugar. Absolutely tons of each. We have it once a year and that's it - usually at the end of August. Yikes!!! Coming back to this recipe... looks pretty much the same as ours which came from my granparents (he was the head of the Czech railways) and now my Canadian wife does them just as well if not better.
