Beef Stew and Dumplings
Tender beef stew and dumplings is as close as you can get to a hug in a bowl! In our lower-calorie version of this classic comfort food, we've used egg yolks in the dumplings. This keeps the taste and texture of traditional dumplings but with no suet in sight.

I made this and my dumplings definitely did not look like these! where did i go wrong? they were like little hard balls of rock! (i did use wholemeal self raising flour, but that shouldn’t make that much difference should it?)

Hi Tash, you’ll need to add a little more water to wholemeal self-raising flour as the bran in the flour will absorb more liquid. This should give you lighter dumplings.Thanks for your question and hope you have a better result if you try the recipe again.
