Peel and chop the potatoes and boil them in salted water. As soon as they are soft, press them through a potato press and let them cool down a little. Then place the two egg yolks on top, add nutmeg and salt and put the liquid butter on top. Knead briefly and then add the wheat flour. Roll out the dough immediately and cut into squares. When I make apricot dumplings, I always use only half an apricot and half a lump sugar , otherwise the dumplings are too big for me. Put the lump sugar into the apricot, close it and wrap it with the dough so that nothing can leak out. Boil the apricot dumplings immediately for 16 minutes or freeze them and cook them frozen.
Melt the butter in a pan, then add breadcrumbs, sugar and cinnamon and fry briefly. The crumbs must not get too dark. Do a taste test.
Carefully remove the dumplings from the salt water and cover them completely with breadcrumbs. Put them on a nice plate and pour hot butter over them. If you like you can add a vanilla sauce.
Bring the milk with the spices to boil and set aside. Put the sugar with the cornstarch in a pan and mix, add the 2 egg yolks and mix with some milk. Then carefully add all the milk to the egg yolk mixture, boil off a vanilla cream and put it aside. Add the liquid cream and let it cool down. If the vanilla cream is too thick, extend it carefully with a little liquid and warm milk.
