- 3 tablespoonsugar
- 1 pinch(es)salt
- 350 gflour
- 375 mlmilk
- 4 tablespoonbutter
- icing sugar, for dusting
- vanilla ice cream, to serve
Step 1Put the blueberries in a bowl (reserving a few to serve), add the sugar and the pinch of salt and sprinkle over the flour.
Step 2In a saucepan, gently heat the milk with 2 tablespoons of the butter. When the butter has melted, pour the mixture into the bowl with the blueberries. Use a wooden spoon to gently and quickly combine.
Step 3Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan and, when foaming, use a large tablespoon to drop the dumpling batter into it, flattening the dumplings gently with the back of the spoon. Fry over a medium heat until crisp and brown on both sides.
Step 4Arrange the dumplings on a plate and sprinkle with icing sugar. Serve with vanilla ice cream and the reserved blueberries.
