Fast Gnocchi or Potato Knoedeln

by Erich D.
(Akron, Ohio USA )

I use it also to make cherry knoedeln, plum, apricot, and strawberry knoendel

I use it also to make cherry knoedeln, plum, apricot, and strawberry knoendel

I use Idaho potato flakes, instead of cooking the potatoes, peeling, etc.

2 cup. Idaho instant potato flakes
2 cup warm water
2 egg yolks
1 cup flour
Dash of salt
Dash of muscat nut (nutmeg)

Mix it together. Adjust dough with flour or water, to make a heavy dough.
Form knoedeln and cook in softly boiling salt water,

For Gnocchi, make a 1" diameter roll. Use string to cut 1" long gnocchi.Cook in softly boiling water until they come up to the top of the cooking pot.

Erich, you make this sound so easy .... easy enough for everyone to make. I like that your recipe can be used for various things, for the Knödeln to Gnocchi.

Your photo looks good. When you say that you make them as cherry or plum or apricot, I'm thinking that you put the fruit inside before cooking them. In the photo it looks like you've sprinkled them with powdered sugar. They look like a delicious dessert, perhaps served with a vanilla sauce?

I'm wondering how long you cook these in the boiling salt water? Is it the normal 20 minutes that most dumplings are cooked for? Or, until they float to the surface, which is usually less time.

Your method of making Gnocchi, by rolling it into a long log and then using string to cut it into sections is great. I'll need to use this for other purposes as well.

Thanks, Erich, for posting this.

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
