Very Easy




  • In a bowl or large measuring cup mix together warm milk and powdered sugar. Crumble fresh yeast and let is rise for 5-8 minutes.
  • In a large bowl mix together flour, salt, egg and melted butter. Add yeast mixture and mix it all well together.
  • Cover the bowl with clean dishcloth and let it rise. The dough should double or more in size.
  • After the dough has risen enough put it on floured counter and roll it till it's about 1/2" thick.
  • Slice it into 3" x 3" squares. Place half a teaspoon of jam in the middle. Lifting and pinching together all four corners make a little ball.
  • In a large pot boil about 3" of water, cover the pot with dishcloth and wrap around with a string. Make sure the dishcloth is really tight on top.
  • Turn down the heat so the water is not rapidly boiling. Place dumplings on top of the dishcloth about 2"apart.
  • Cover with large pot or bowl. Make sure the steam is not coming out, but staying all inside.
  • Let the dumplings steam for 10-12 minutes.
  • Put them on the place. Pour little bit of melted butter on top and sprinkle with cocoa and powder sugar.
