Germknödel are a sweet delicacy from Bavaria and Austria and can be found all across the Alpes. The fluffy dumplings are made from yeast dough and are filled with a spicy plum jam. They are usually topped with poppy seeds and sugar and are served with melted butter or vanilla sauce. The traditional sweet dish can be ordered as a dessert or even as a complete main course. Germknödel usually have the shape of a sphere or a bun.

Germknödel are related to another traditional German dish called Dampfnudeln. While Germknödel are steamed or boiled in a pot, Dampfnudeln are usually cooked in a deep pan to produce its signature crust.
