Sweet or Savory Dampfnudel
Shortening can be substituted for the butter, if desired. Heavy whipping cream can be used in place of milk in the vanilla sauce. Rum can be used in place of brandy.
Use more milk in the dough if too dry and more flour if too wet.
For a savory dampfnudel: Put butter, salt, and water in the bottom of the heavy pot in Step 2 rather than the sugar.
