5 Ingredients: Blueberry dumplings

If you are planning on using frozen berries, let them thaw out first in a sieve to remove excess water, then use as below. Gow gee pastry can be used as well instead of the hot water dough, but I like the thickness of this pastry much better.

For the 5 ingredients Blueberry dumplings:

  • 1 cup plain flour plus extra
  • 1/4 cup hot water not boiling
  • 125 g blueberries
  • 1 tsp granulated stevia or unrefined sugar optional

To serve:

  • Double cream
  • Gluten-free Dumpling Skins: use 1 serving Gluten-free Dumpling Skin recipe from The Wholesome Cook cookbook.


To make the 5 ingredients Blueberry Dumplings:

  • Place flour in a mixing bowl and add hot water. Mix with a spoon until the mixture becomes doughy. It should be soft but not stick to your fingers. If it’s too tacky add a little flour at a time, if too dry and crumbly, add water by the teaspoon and work it in. Take dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is soft, smooth and elastic. Cover with plastic and allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes in the fridge.
  • 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 centre 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).

To serve:

  • Serve with a good dollop of double cream.

To store:

  • Spray any leftover dumplings with cooking spray to prevent them from sticking to each other and keep in the fridge.
  • Leftover dumplings can be reheated in boiling water for about 1 minute.
