Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You can add in some cayenne pepper and garlic powder to the dumplings also if desired, these will really expand when cooking so use only a teaspoonful of batter! Servings is only estimated.

  1. In a bowl sift together the flour, salt, black pepper (if using) and baking powder.

  3. Drop by a teaspoon into simmering soup or stew.
  4. Cook covered for about 18-20 minutes and NO PEEKING for the first 10 minutes.
