1/4 Photos of Fluffy Little Clouds - Old Fashioned Dumplings for Stew
This is my Mum's traditional dumpling recipe - and they ARE very light & fluffy, hence the recipe name! I never use beef suet, there is very good vegetable suet available now; if you cannot get hold of suet, put a block of butter in the freezer & grate it into the dumpling mixture - it's the little pieces of fat that give the dumplings their "rise"! These are great with added flavours, such as garlic, herbs, seasoning salt, even chilli if you are making them to go with a spicy stew or soup. Drop them into any stews or soups you are making - they are also wonderful baked in the oven, they are still light but have a crusty top. This recipe can be increased with ease - the quantities listed make 8 individual dumplings.
