Ingredients
  

Potato Dough

  • 1 pound (500g) starchy potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp (15g) butter , melted
  • 1/4 tsp (1g) salt
  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour

Filling

  • 15-17 fresh prune plums

Breadcrumb Coating

  • 1 cup (150g) fine breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp (30g) butter
  • 2/3 cup (135g) sugar
  • 1/2 tsp (1g) cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Boil the potatoes with their skin on, until tender. Let the potato cool slightly before peeling.
  • Meanwhile prepare the breadcrumb coating. In a medium frying pan melt the butter, add breadcrumbs and mix to combine. Cook on low-medium heat until golden brown. Stir constantly to prevent burning. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. When cool enough stir in sugar and cinnamon.
  • Prepare the potato dough. Place the peeled potatoes into a large bowl and mash using a potato masher or simply use a grater. Add salt, egg, melted butter and flour and mix to combine. Knead until a smooth, sticky dough is formed.
  • Split each plum slightly just to remove the pit and set aside until ready to use.
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil then reduce the heat to a low simmer. On a floured surface, take about a spoon of potato dough, flatten slightly, add a plum into the center and wrap the dough around it. Form into balls.
  • Put 4 or 5 dumplings at once into the hot water. Let the dumplings boil until they come to the surface of the water. Let them boil on the surface another 5 more minutes. Remove the dumplings with a perforated spoon and roll them in breadcrumbs mixture.
  • Serve warm or cold. Enjoy!

    Hi, I would like to make dumplings with plums but we don’t have this kind of blue plums here in Dunoon but different, bigger and red. Will it be the same with these red big plums?
