Czech Republic - Bohemian dumplings

České knedlíky

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

• 500 g of wheat flour type 1050
• 3 to 4 eggs
• 500 ml of milk
• 1 packet of yeast or 100 ml of beer
• 60 g of butter
• Water, nutmeg and
1 teaspoon of salt


Dissolve the crumbled yeast in the warm milk (or add the beer), add the flour, eggs, salt and a sprinkle of ground nutmeg and knead well until it forms a smooth dough. Cover with a linen cloth and leave for at least 90 minutes. Then knead it again and allow to rest for another 30 minutes.

Form the dough into a long roll and wrap it in either a linen cloth or buttered parchment paper and cook for 20 minutes in boiling salted water.

Remove the roll from the water, unwrap it and cut into slices using wire or sewing thread.

Serve as an accompaniment to meat dishes or fry the slices in butter and serve as a main dish.
