Bohemian Dumpling Recipe

I was enjoying wonderful Bohemian Dumplings in Prague last summer. Those dumplings were so fluffy and delicious! Bohemian dumplings are a great side for meat dishes that come with gravy. They remind me a bit of white bread and essentially they are made from similar ingredients.

Making Bohemian Dumplings …

How to make bohemian dumplings

… is very easy! There isn’t much work involved, just some time to let the dough ferment and the time to steam them. On their own, however, those dumplings are a bit dry and boring, so a good gravy is mandatory! It just happens, that I have the perfect gravy recipe on my blog!

Can you Reheat the Dumplings?

dumplings with gravy

Yes, you can reheat them. Just put the slices on a plate, add the gravy and put the plate in the microwave for a couple of seconds. They will taste as if they were fresh unless you have them in the microwave for too long.

Isn’t that the same as …

Dampfnudeln Steamed buns

… Dampfnudeln? Yes, Dampfnudeln (Germknödel) you might know from Austria or Bavaria are a sweet version of this with a filling. The recipe for the dough is very similar. There are different ways to make Dampfnudeln though: Steamed or cooked on some cream or made in the oven.

    I really want to do this, but have a question that is unclear in both the recipe and video. About how long is needed to steam the dumpling?

    Many thanks

  3. Lovely! Thank you.

    Am originally from Vienna, but came here as a small child a looong time ago. I love your recipes. They often remind me of my father’s cooking. He was very good at it, had learned it standing by his mother’s knee.

    Am a big fan of yours. Thank you for all the effort you put in.


    1. Thank you for your kind message, Monica! I hope I am bringing back some cherished recipes and childhood memories.

    1. Hallo Beate,

      Das liegt sehr wahrscheinlich an einem Popup Blocker. Ich vermute mal dass Du Chrome benutzt aber die meisten Browser ähneln sich in den Funktionen und evtl. musst Du für einen anderen Browser googeln wie es dort zu ändern geht.
      Für den Chrome Browser:
      On your computer, open Chrome.
      At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
      Click Privacy and security and then Site Settings and then Pop-ups and redirects.
      Dort hast Du nun die Möglichkeit entweder Pop-Ups generel zuzulassen oder nur für bestimmte Seiten, wie z.B. https://mygerman.recipes/ Dafür musst Du dann den Link https://mygerman.recipes/ unter Allowed to send pop-ups and use redirects hinzufügen

      Ich hoffe das hilft Dir weiter. Falls nicht, melde Dich nochmal.

      Grüße aus Texas!!
