Norfolk Dumpling Recipe



Allow 1 heaped tablespoon of self-raising flour or plain flour and baking powder to each person; a good pinch of salt; water to mix



Sieve flour and salt into a bowl. Add sufficient water to make a light dough. Turn on to floured surface. Knead together and divide into pieces. Form into round dumplings. Cook in a greased steamer for 20 minutes. An alternative method is to place on top of vegetables or stew and cook for about 25 minutes.
