Experience blueberries like you never have before with these blueberry dumplings. They’re super easy to create and make the perfect dish for dinner, dessert or both!
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
– 1½ cups of plain flour + extra
– ½ cup hot water (not boiling)
– 125g blueberries
– 1 tsp white sugar (optional)
– Double cream (optional, to serve)
Place flour in a mixing bowl and add hot water. Mix with a spoon until the mixture becomes doughy.
Take out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is soft, smooth and elastic. Add a little more flour if it’s too sticky. Then roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface to about 2mm thin.
Using a drinking glass (about 8-9cm / 3-3.5in in diameter) cut circles out of the dough. Roll up the scraps and repeat with the rest.
Sprinkle blueberries with 1 teaspoon white sugar and mix. Place a teaspoon of berries into the center of the pastry, fold over and pinch the edges firmly. Repeat.
Bring a large pot of water to the boil and cook dumplings for about 3-4 minutes (they will float to the surface and become slightly translucent when ready). Then serve with a big dollop of cream!
