Instructions
  1. First, boil the 3 potatoes in their skin (this is going to take a while, about 1 hour).
  2. When the potatoes are boiled, peel them and mash them in a bowl, using a fork.
  3. Now, fill a large pot with water, add a pinch of salt in it and bring it to boil while you prep the rest.
  4. In the bowl you mashed the potatoes, add the rest of the ingredients: flour, one whole egg, 2 tablespoons of oil and a pinch of salt.
  5. Mix everything, using your hands, until you obtain your dumpling dough.
  6. Now, using both your hands, gently roll out the dough on a surface sprinkled with some flour (your kitchen table, for instance) and form a 1/2 inch thick roll.
  7. Cut the roll in 12 equal pieces, using a regular kitchen knife.
  8. Take each dough piece, 1 at a time, and using your hands form a dumpling while placing a plum in the center. You should obtain 12 raw plum dumplings after you fold and roll them in your hands (use flour if the dough is too sticky).
  9. Place each dumpling into the water you put on the stove earlier. Place a few dumplings at a time, and boil for about 15-20 minutes each.
  10. Now prepare the breadcrumbs: in a pan, heat up the butter and add the breadcrumbs. Let them fry for a few minutes, until the breadcrumbs become dark brown. Make sure you stir constantly so the breadcrumbs won’t burn!
  11. When the breadcrumbs are done, take the pan off the stove and add the sugar to the mix.
  12. Cover each dumpling in breadcrumbs and serve!
Recipe Notes

To know for sure the dumplings are boiled, take them out after they surface all by themselves and the dough changes color (when it becomes translucent).
