    About this recipe: These fried buttery fritters are typically served with saltfish in Jamaica as part of a weekend breakfast feast. You can serve these as a side to your favourite Jamaican meal.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 500g plain flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 110g butter
    • 125ml cold water
    • 250ml vegetable oil for frying

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Rub in the butter until it is in pieces no larger than peas. Mix in water 1 tablespoon at a time just until the mixture is wet enough to form into a ball. The dough should be a firm consistency. Knead briefly.
    2. Heat the oil in a large heavy frying pan over medium heat until hot. Break off pieces of the dough and shape into a patty - kind of like a flat scone. Place just enough of the dumplings in the pan so they are not crowded. Fry on each side until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper before serving.

    These were sickly tasting and very salty, ive never used butter in dumplings before but gave a try and would not again, will stick with flour, water, drop of milk and sugar next time. - 04 May 2014
