    Looking for an old recipe that I have always heard referred to as "Shiskas". I am unsure of the spelling but it is a plum wrapped in dough boiled in water. Then sprinkled with a mixture of browned bread crumbs, sugar and cinnamon. I wanted to know the correct spelling and where it originated. My family starting with my grandmother have been making this delicious dessert for years. My grandmother has passed and my mother taught me how to make them. Please help me. Thanks.

    I think you are looking for "švestkové knedlíky". But I am confused with this "bread crumbs" thing ("strouhanka"), I never heard about this combination.

    I know the combination with bread crumbs, sugar, cinnamon and butter from my home. Or you can use poppy seed, which is more common in Czechia.
    The name "Shiskas" means "šišky", another regional name for "knedlíky" (dumplings). Czech recipe is e.g. here, but googling "švestkové knedlíky" or "plum dumplings" finds several thousands pages :)
