Topfenknödel, a sweet Austrian dish

Jump to recipe

A typical Austrian or Bavarian dish I ate in Mittenwald, South Bavaria. These are called “Topfenknödel“. Topfen means Quark, and can be substituted with Greek Yoghurt. The dumplings could be be filled with Plum or Apricot pieces, and covered with puppy seed instead of bread crumps.

While preparing the Topfenknoedel, you can make the Vanilla sauce. I prefer the fast method with a mix, or just use Vanilla pudding, the cooking type, and add more milk a the end to make it fluid.
