Dumplings for Stew

I have used this recipe for years and have yet to have it fail to make terrific soft light fluffy dumplings. My mom was a great cook but just could not make a fluffy dumpling for some reason. Worked out great...I made these for her and she made her wonderful flaky pie crusts for me since you could pave a road with my crusts..LOL! For a really quick supper, use a couple large cans of Dinty Moore type stew and drop these dumplings on top..yummm!

Dumplings for Stew

1 1/3 cup flour
2 Tblsp double acting baking powder
1 tsp chopped parsley
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
2 Tblsp salad oil

Stir with fork until soft dough is formed. Drop by Tablespoonful onto simmering stew. Cook uncovered 10 mins. then cover and cook 10 mins. more..no peeking!

Dumplings

This sounds easy and good. I'm going to try it the next time I make soup or stew.

ICB I love a pair of firm but fluffy dumpling nestling on top of a fragrant plate of stew, the link bellow is the spiritual home of all dumpling lovers. There are sweet and savory dumpling and the recipe of the month is the English favorite Citrus Date Spotted Dick a sweet, large mottled dumpling. The jocks have the Clootie dumpling that they traditionally ate before battle with the sasanacs hence the lack of results.

I enjoy these in the winter on a can of chunky soup. Emergency shelf/comfort food when the snow is blowing outside. Also these are good on top of a pot of stewed fruit. Omit the parsley and sprinkle a little sugar on top.

I never would have thought of that Bea, maybe some cinnamon too !! What a good idea.

For me it is just cooked fruit. Blueberries, peaches etc, with a little sugar and cornstarch cooked until the juices flow and it is slightly thickened.
