Never Fail Dumplings

These Never Fail Dumplings can also be served as a dessert by cooking in boiling water and serving with pancake syrup or jam drizzled over them.

Make Ahead: Mix up the dry ingredients into batches and store them in zip lock bags ready to add liquid and the egg when ready to use them.


  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 medium egg
  • 6 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Beat the egg well, then add the 6 tablespoons of cold water. Measure the water carefully.
  2. Add the oil and salt and whisk together.
  3. Mix the baking-powder and flour together.
  4. Blend the two mixes into a smooth batter quickly.
  5. Drop into boiling stew and cover continuing to boil for 15-20 minutes. Try to resist the urge to peek too often - the dumplings will rise and produce a light tender crust - a cold draught will cause them to fall.

Yield: 8 dumplings
