SOUSKLUITJIES (Dumplings in Cinnamon Sauce)

by Becky
(South Africa)

Souskluitjies is a Traditional South African recipe that really means dumplings in a cinnamon sauce. They are firm favorites with anyone who tries them, so I hope that enjoy making and eating these too!


120 g cake flour
10 ml baking powder
2 ml salt
15 g butter
1 egg
125 ml milk
butter and cinnamon
sugar to serve


Sift the dry ingredients together and mix in the butter with fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Mix egg and milk and add to above.

Boil water (must be about deep) with a pinch of salt in a casserole with a lid.

Use a teaspoon dipped in boiling water to put spoonfuls of the dough into the boiling water.

Cover with tight fitting lid and cook slowly for 10 minutes (don't peek, as this will cause the dumplings to "fall down" and become rubbery).

Remove from heat, pour into a serving bowl and put dots of butter on top.

Sprinkle a lot of cinnamon sugar over and serve
with vanilla custard.
