How to Make Fluffy Dumplings


  1. Mix all ingredients together so that it is sticky but able to drop from a tablespoon. Last 15 minutes before serving your stew or soup drop in broth with a tablespoon(you can make them smaller but they puff up as you can see in the photo)cover and cook for the remainder of time.
