In my family we always keep to the Hungarian tradition of celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve rather than on Christmas Day, so we’ve just finished our Christmas Eve dinner, capped by a partial giving of presents, and I’m beat.
This is what I made :
They are called Silvas Gomboc [Plum Dumplings] and are a traditional Hungarian dish. Gomboc are not usually served for Christmas dinner, but I wanted to make something different, and it is The Daughter’s favourite dish, so we were both happy.
Each dumpling has a pitted plum in the middle and the dumpling itself is made from a potato dough. Toasted bread crumbs and cinnamon sugar go on top.
These dumplings were delicious when my Mum used to make them, but this is literally the first time I’ve managed to make a batch as light and yummy as hers! I’m one, happy camper at the moment. 😀

Be warned though, making these dumplings will leave your kitchen looking as if a bomb has hit it. 😀
Goodnight all! May your Christmas be happy, safe and full of love.
