Blueberry Dumplings

Ingredients for 4 servings:
500 g fresh blueberries
400 g flour
2 pinches salt
400 ml milk
4 tablespoons clarified butter
Icing sugar


Wash the blueberries and mix them together with the flour and salt in a bowl. Bring the milk to boil and while still hot add slowly to the mixture stirring continuously until you get a thick dumpling dough.

Heat the clarified butter in a frying pan. Use a large spoon to form the dumplings as you wish, place them in the pan and press them flat.
Cook slowly over a medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side. Carefully remove the dumplings from the pan, drain off well or dab with kitchen roll.

Dust with icing sugar before serving.

Our tip: Blueberry dumplings are delicious served with whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream.

We wish you bon appétit!
