Czech Fruit Dumplings

Updated on July 25, 2019

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
Yields: 6 serves / aproximately 22 dumplings


  • 1 lb (450g) plain white wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fast action yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 oz melted butter
  • 10.5 fl oz (300ml) whole milk
  • fruit for filling: blueberries, strawberries, plums, etc.
  • extra flour to cover a dough for easier manipulation

Ingredients for topping:

  • melted butter
  • icing sugar
  • white yoghurt, or curd cheese


To a big bowl sift a flour (which helps the dough to grow). Then add sugar, salt, fast action yeast. Mix together. Then add an egg, melted butter, and lukewarm milk. Don't use cold from the fridge because it will extend the time to activate the yeast. Then start kneading until silky smooth, which should take approximately 10 minutes. Add more flour if need it. Then leave it for 30 minutes to rise.


After 30 minutes of rest, the dough should double its size.

Roll out the dough into a square about 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick and cut it into 2 inches squares. If it is still sticky, use some extra flour. Then take your chosen fruit and start to fill the future dumplings. Then seal it and turn it into a little ball. Fruit must be coated on all sides, no holes or it will ruin the dumpling in during the cooking.

Get a big pot. Fill with the water, add 1 teaspoon of salt and boil it. When the water is boiling add dumplings and then cook them for around 5 minutes (depends on size), then flip them over and cook for another 4 - 9 minutes. When the dumplings are cooked you take them from the pot you must stab them with a fork to let the steam out so, they don't flat.

And that's it... For topping use white yogurt (or shredded curd cheese), sprinkle with icing sugar and pour with melted butter.

Bon appetite.

Tip! Some people recommend using a steamer instead and steam them for about 9 minutes so, they don't need to flip them over.
