muldesha (or Muldenshan)
My father's mother made a dumpling type dish that he remembers as muldesha. She passed away 65 years ago (long before I was born). Have you ever heard of anything name this or something similar?

Interesting name. I've tried pronouncing it every which way with every type of German dialect I know, but I still can't figure out what this could be.
Do you have any idea what part of Germany your grandmother came from? That would certainly make the possibilities easier to find. Certainly with dumplings, the various regions of Germany have their favorites.
For example, the Bavarians LOVE their bread dumplings. My Mutti came from the Berlin area and she never, ever made anything like this. I grew up with potato dumplings made from raw potatoes -- my favorites. Later on, she experimented a bit and started to make them using cooked potatoes. They were easier and quicker to make.
Does your Dad remember anything else about this dumpling dish? I've been surprised at the various types of dumplings there are. Blood, marrow, liver, and of course, potato, and bread and many other combinations!
There are also dumplings called serviette dumplings, and, oh, so much more.
It would be great if we could solve this puzzle, and add that recipe to this site as well.
Hopefully, one of our readers will know this and pass on any information they have,
