We Austrians life for our Knödel. Seriously we wouldn’t be able to think those round dumplings away from our lives, simply because they are so versatile and because we enjoy them savoury and even sweet. There are so many versions, you would be surprised! I am aware that many people out there in the world don’t even know the existence of Knödel, our floury middle European treats. That’s why I am always happy to introduce you all to a new type of dumpling and a new way to use them, because the world deserves to know the best of the best and I like to share my knowledge!
That was the case too when my relatives from France would come down in the late winter months for a week to ski in the Alps and to relish our local food dishes. Till now I believe they haven’t discovered it all and I am not sure if they actually know the sweet strawberry knödel. Most probably they might know the apricot version of the sweet knödel which is by the way much more common in the mountains. But since I don’t get Apricots here but I was still getting the taste for that dish I decided to make my dumplings with strawberries.
Strawberry Knödels are made of an outside layer of choux dough, covering the strawberry inside. The ball is then covered with butter breadcrumbs and some sugar is sprinkled on top. It is a lovely surprise for somebody who hasn’t seen this dessert before and I have to say that I have not tasted anything which comes close to those knödels. The trick I believe is in the dough, there is a technique to follow precisely, that’s why I was more detailed with my step by step pictures today. I would love to see some of you attempting this recipe and of course I would be thrilled to know if you liked it.
