Ingredients

  • 1 pt. flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 scant cup milk or water

Method

Mix the dry ingredients, stir in the milk or water gradually to make a soft dough. Drop quickly by the spoonful into the boiling water or stew, letting them rest on the meat and potatoes. Cover closely to keep in the steam, and cook just 10 minutes without lifting the cover. Serve at once with brown butter or any well seasoned meat sauce.
