This was my grandmothers recipe for dumplings, and still my go to.
What is really interesting about this one is the way she wrote it (in a handwritten book, over 100 years old!!), not only does it make amazing dumplings, but there are adaptations to make pancakes, scones or cake.:)
If you’re interested in trying them, the dumplings make the base recipe, then:
For Pancakes; add more milk to proper consistency.
For Scones; add up to 1/4 cup sugar and up to 1 tsp vanilla extract
For Irish Apple Cake; add 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and apple slices.
Bake in greased pan at 350 F for about 20 minutes.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsps. butter, lard, or oil
- about 1/2 cup water or milk
Mix dry ingredients and cut in lard.
Make a well in center, add egg. Mix.
Slowly add water/milk just until dough becomes kneadable.
Drop in approximately 12 equal portions on top of hot stew. Cover and cook about 12 - 15 minutes.
