The Austrian sweet dumpling with a lot of hot air, made from eggs, flour, sugar, and vanilla sugar. [A sprinkle of salt is traditional, but I do not like salt in this recipe.] The egg whites are beaten and then gently folded into the rest of the ingredients. The distinct shape is from dropping the dough into several mounds with a LARGE spoon into a buttered baking dish. The size of the baking dish will determine how high the mounds can rise, if the baking dish is too large, it will spread first which will make for low dumpling. To get the height, the baking dish should barely accommodate the dough, but not so small the dumpling will overflow. Made from two eggs is sufficient for two people. Since the ratio is 1 Tbsp of flour and sugar for every two eggs, the recipe is easy to multiply.
Salzburg dumpling must be served and eaten right of way. This is quick to prepare, making it a perfect quick fix for soothing those sweet cravings or to treating an unexpected guest to something nice.
*Make at least one trial run before serving this to guests. This was my third try and I am still not satisfied with the result. Finally, I think I may have figured out what dish and how many eggs to use. I will use the same dish as in the photos with the reconfigured recipe using three eggs.

rind of 1 lemon, finely grated [optional]
