52 weeks of baking – Czech Republic
These little fruit dumplings are from the Czech Republic and make for a lovely low sugar dessert. Traditionally stone fruit like plums and apricots are wrapped in a yeast dough and cooked in simmering water until they are plump. I stuffed mine with strawberries and blueberries, served with melted butter and a sprinkle of ground poppy seeds with powdered sugar. The dough has a little sugar and you can optionally put some sugar inside of the dumplings with the fruit but I found my fruit sweet enough. The additional dusting of sugar to serve with the dumplings makes for just the right amount of sweetness.
