Sheep´s milk cheese curd dumplings with berry ragout

Ingredients for 8 persons

For the curd cheese dumplings:
300g butter

2 tbsp icing sugar

2 tbsp rum

grated zest of an organic lime or orange

1kg sheep´s milk curd cheese

2 eggs (L) (yolks and egg white)

4 egg yolks

240g breadcrumbs

Pinch of salt

2 tbsp flour


For the berry ragout:
500g fresh mixed berries


Lemon juice

8 tbsp sugar


For the buttered breadcrumbs:
200g butter

320g breadcrumbs

2 tbsp sugar

2 pinches of cinnamon




Use a mixer to beat the butter together with the icing sugar, rum, and lemon zest until it is light and fluffy. Add the curd cheese, eggs, breadcrumbs and a generous pinch of salt and stir everything together well. Please note: leave to chill for at least 1 hour.


Wash, clean and separate the berries. Bring briefly to the boil in a little water, lemon juice, and sugar while stirring gently.


In the meantime, bring a large amount of water to the boil in a large saucepan. At the same time, melt the butter for the buttered breadcrumbs in a frying pan and sauté the breadcrumbs, sugar, and cinnamon. Make dumplings with both hands from the curd cheese dough, reduce heat under the boiling water, place dumplings in water and simmer until they rise to the surface.


Remove dumplings from water using a slotted spoon, briefly leave to drain, roll in the breadcrumbs and serve with the berry ragout.
