Czech sweet warm dishes

We Czechs love sweet and the specialty of Czech cuisine is sweet warm dishes. Yes – instead of meat or pasta (or another “normal salty” dish), we love to eat full plate of fruit dumplings or buns with vanilla sauce (custard). :-)


 

Here are our most favorite sweet warm dishes:
“Buchtičky se šodó” (Tiny buns with vanilla sauce)
For many people they represent a memory of childhood and school restaurants. We just loved them or hated them – based on the quality of the school cuisine. However, it is very delicious food. Leavened small buns are baked until get gold and then served with creamy vanilla sauce (custard). If you like to make the dish bit special you can fill the buns or add some rum into the sauce.

“Buchtičky se šodó” (Tiny buns with vanilla sauce)

 

For many people they represent a memory of childhood and school restaurants. We just loved them or hated them – based on the quality of the school cuisine. However, it is very delicious food. Leavened small buns are baked until get gold and then served with creamy vanilla sauce (custard). If you like to make the dish bit special you can fill the buns or add some rum into the sauce. 

 

 

“Ovocné knedlíky” (Fruit dumplings)

 

For us personally, they represent memories on our grannies who served them as a main course. Their fruit dumplings were always so delicious that we easily ate five or six pieces at once. There are three types of dumplings – leavened, potato or cottage cheese one and we fill them with fresh fruits according to the season – strawberries, blueberries, apricots, plums are the most popular. On the top we put grated curd, sugar and melted butter and the result is just great! 

 

 

“Staročeský trhanec” (Old Czech “trhanec”)


It is very similar to pancake – it is just thicker and you can add apples, plums or raisins. When pancake is baked, you simply tear it to pieces and serve it with curd, rum & sugar or honey. 

 

 

“Povidlové taštičky” (Plum filled dumplings)


Very similar dish to fruit potato dumplings – they are just thinner and shaped into smaller dumpling – likewise Russian “pirohy”. Dumplings are then filled not with fruit but with plum jam. 

 

“Domácí nudle s mákem” (Homemade noodles with poppy seed)


Very simply dish. Over homemade noodle we put poppy seed with sugar and melted butter. If you don´t like poppy seed, you can use cinnamon sugar.  

 

 

If you like to taste some of these sweet dishes and do not feel to eat it all, do not worry. At the restaurants, you can get them usually as a dessert. For fruit dumplings go to Krystal Mozaika Bistro or Café Savoy, at Čestr restaurant you can try great buns filled with poppy seed and vanilla & rum sauce or old Czech “trhanec” with curd, and you can taste buns at Home Kitchen or Babiččina zahrada
