First of all I want to apologize to Ivana because she sent this to me like a million years ago and now plums are out of season and well, crap. The lovely Ivana is the only Batter Junkie to ever guest blog twice, well with the exception of dear mama. Here is a scrumptious recipe from Croatia filled with potatoey plum goodness. Make sure to make 15 of them because they’ll be going fast. For those of you who are wondering they are kind of different but they are so yummy!
15 seedless plums
3 cups of flour
3 large potatoes
1 Tbsp of butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp of baking powder
sugar for the plums
How to do it:
Cook the potatoes with their peel. After they are done, let them cool a bit and remove their peel. In one bowl sift flour, add potatoes, egg, baking powder, salt and butter. Mix together and make fine dough. In case the dough falls apart a bit, you can add a bit of milk.
Roll out the dough and cut into small 15 pieces.
Make sure the plums are pitted. If you fail to do this your dumplings could be a little too crunchy. Fill the plums with sugar and put them on each piece of dough. Fold the dough around the plums to make little balls. Put the balls into heating salty water and cook them until they come to the surface.
In a baking tray, mix a lot of vegetable oil and breadcrumbs. Roll each ball into this and put them in an oven for 10 minutes (200′).
Serve them warm with sugar or sour cream.
