About this recipe: This is like a thin, but chunky also, because the apples are not mashed, applesauce; wherein you drop some excellent dumplings. Eat warm with evaporated milk, or ice cream would be very fine, indeed! O, I do love these!

Serves: 8 

  • 6 to 8 apples, sliced
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 quart water
  • 256g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 76g butter
  • 180ml buttermilk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. Slice apples (peel them if you want to), and put them into a pot (a wide pot, or wide skillet) with sugar and water. Bring to the boil; cover, and then make dumpling dough while waiting.
  2. Dumpling dough: mix the flour with the soda and the 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut in the butter, and stir the buttermilk completely in.
  3. When apples are very soft, drop in as many dumplings as will fit and cook uncovered. Turn dumplings now and again; test by splitting one to see if it isn't doughy any longer. Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the whole thing, and a bit a cinnamon over each serving.
