  • In large bowl mix quark, eggs, semolia, salt and sugar. Let the mixture rest for at least 30 minutes to allow the semolina to swell slightly.
  • In the large skillet roast the breadcrumbs in the oil.
  • Bring water to boiling.
  • Form 12 dumplings from the mixture with wet hands.
  • Lower the dumlings into the boiling water and simmer for about 10 minutes, the dumplings should rise to the surface.

Serve immediately with sour cream and powdered sugar.

In restarurants sometimes they serve the Quark Dumplings with the powdered cinnamon and sugar mixture. I think them better wihtout cinnamon.
