A variation of the plum dumplings, this is a great way to use apricots in a dish. These dumplings are a great idea for breakfast or dinner (with a glass of cold milk); they can also be served as dessert.
My grandmother used to make this dish pretty often, especially during lent. As a child I was not too found of it but now I like it and, to my surprise, my kids also enjoy eating cabbage and noodles, especially my three year old daughter.
Still looking for the perfect side dish? Rice pilaf is the one and what a versatile food you can add any vegetables you have in the house, add cheese, walnuts, anything you have on hand and it’s great.
Another great dessert for the season. Really easy to make and the kids enjoyed having this snack at school.
The sweet Plum Dumplings are a fall favorite in our household. They can be served as dessert or main dish. I’ve seen variations of this recipe in Romania, Austria, Croatia and Hungary. It’s simply delicious and makes a good snack for kids’ lunches too.
