Today I made yeast dumplings - a tradition german food that you can eat for example with blueberries and custard.
It was the first time I made it, but it turned out really great. (We all had little bit to much of it^^)
1 pinch of salt
1 pack of dry yeast
250 ml milk
100 g of butter
100 g of sugar
2 packs of vanilla sugar
2 egg (s)
(tinned blueberries / vanilla sauce)
In the first step mix all the dry ingredients (besides the yeast) well together in a big bowl.
Then make a little mole in the middle.
Next melt the butter and make the milk lukewarm. But the butter, the milk, the eggs, a little bit of sugar and the yeast into the mole and mix them slightly
(without mixing them with the dry ingredients).
After 15 minutes mix everything together and knead the dough very well.
Then let the dough rest in a warm place for 1 hour and cover it with a dishcloth.
After 1 hour knead the dough again and add some flour if necessary until the dough is soft and not sticky anymore.
Then make little rolls out of it, sit them on a dishcloth that is dusted with flour and put another dishcloth over them (dusted with flour as well). Wait until the rolls got bigger.
Fill a cooking pot with water and cover it with a dishcloth. Fix the dishcloth with a big rubber band to the pot. Then put the yeast dumplings onto it. Cover everything with a lid. Damp the dumplings for about 15 - 20 minutes. Check with a split whether they are done - if no dough is on the split anymore.
Serve the yeast dumplings when they are still hot with tinned blueberries (and optional with vanilla sauce).
