Magpie’s Crockpot Dumplings

I didn’t know you could do dumplings on top of stews in the crock pot, so I figured maybe  someone else out there doesn’t know. It is just a simple little recipe for tasty dumplings, but I love that you can throw them in the crockpot as well. I just tried it and it worked. Who knew?

Ingredients :

1 cup of flour
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter/margarine
1/2 cup of milk

Drop by large tablespoonful onto the top of your stew/soup concoction in the crockpot.

Seal the crockpot with tinfoil and the lid. Steam them for about 30 minutes.

Voila! Perfectly done dumplings!

    Thank you for a wonderful little recipe. I needed to make chicken fricassee, such a wonderful Fall day, but due to an afternoon project, needed convenience of my slow cooker. Until I found your recipe, I was frankly horrified with the number of recipes calling for cans of condensed cream soups in their chicken and dumplingd, with biscuit dough for the “dumplings”. I cook from scratch, so those recipes would not work for me. Your recipe allowed me to make dumplings almost as good as my Grandmother’s were! An easey peasey recipe I will use from now on.

    I ending up having to add 1/2 cup of more liquid .. maybe a miss print? I used 1/2 cup of sour dough starter from the fridge and 1/2 cup of water turned out great : )

    Thank you sooo much for this post. I love my crockpot but missed having dumplings on stews and what not so much, and now I don’t have to worry. I made them as stated but added some fresh ground pepper to the mix for flavor, and they turned out perfectly.

    I had mine cook at low, the same as the recipe I was using.

    Hi Karlynn!!! I didn’t know either. In fact, I’ve never even thought about crock pot dumplings until about 10 minutes ago when I realized there was no way I’d have time to make a stovetop beef stew this week so it was gonna have to be crock pot or nothing…and then “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE DUMPLINGS?!?!?”

    Thanks for sharing the technique. Wondering if it matters “high” or “low” setting for the 30 min?

    Jim brought home a loaf of rustic sourdough from NAIT (when they bake the culinary arts programs hawk their wares!) so we’re doing slabs of bread and cheese and soup (from a can unless I find a good quick carrot soup recipe…)

    great instructions!  I am using a recipe that uses cornmeal dumplings in a crock-pot, which gave me the idea that you could actually do dumplings in a crock pot, but I wanted traditional dumplings. Thank you for these instructions, I would not have figured out the tin-foil part, very smart!

    mmmmm. dumplings….
    what temperature setting is your crock pot on when you seal it with foil to let the dumplings steam – Low or High?

      Tried this and they turned out doughy and just not at all good. They were dropped in by spoonfuls and there aren’t too many. I’m not sure what happened. But there were terrible.
