If this isn't the weather for making Buchteln and Dampfnudeln, I don't know what is! These buns of joy are baked or steamed and served most often with vanilla sauce. Filled with surprises like plum butter or poppy seeds, they are a perfect second course after a hearty soup for lunch.

These yeast dumplings have a long tradition, going back hundreds of years. Dampfnudeln were even part of negotiations during the Thirty Year's War in the 17th century. Find out more about these yummy dumplings here. More about Buchteln.
