About this recipe: Dampfnudeln, German poached rolls or dumplings, can be sweet or savoury. This is a savoury version, straight from a real German oma!


Serves: 6 

  • 500g plain flour
  • 1 packet dried active baking yeast
  • 250ml milk
  • 50g margarine or butter
  • 1 egg
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons lard, or as needed

Prep:3hr  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:4hr 

  1. Place flour and yeast in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Add milk, margarine or butter, egg and salt. Knead into a soft dough and leave for 90 minutes, covered, to rise.
  2. Generously dust a work surface. Roll the dough to 5mm thick, then use a glass to cut out circles of dough. Cover with a cloth and let rise for 90 minutes.
  3. Add 125 to 250ml of water to a heavy saucepan or casserole dish (enough to cover the bottom of the pan) along with a generous pinch of salt and the lard. Arrange dough circles in the pan; cover and cook over low heat until dough is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
