We love homemade dumplings when we have stew. They add a major filling effect to any meal, no matter how little you eat of the stew. Stew and dumplings are the perfect cool weather supper.

We actually call dumplings “octopus brains” in our house as a little joke, I mean, they do kind of look like brains right? We serve these with stew, stoups, and some soups. Anything that is savory.

These are easy to make, and once you drop them in the pot, you are basically done until they are fully cooked.

What you need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp parsley (optional)
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk

How to Make Homemade Dumplings

Start by mixing together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In the bowl of your KitchenAid mixer, I use my mixer.

Cut in cold margarine until your dry ingredients are crumbly. I do use my mixer for this, I used the batter beater.

Slowly mix in milk until soft. Make 12 small balls. I used a meatball scoop to have dumplings that are all the same size.

You are going to drop these balls into the boiling stew, cover, and cook for approximately 15 minutes. You need to keep the stew boiling to cook these.

You’ll know they are cooked when they doubled in size, and look delicious. Stick a toothpick in the center of one, if it comes out clean, then they are cooked. They are not going to brown up, they are quick sticky.
