So how did my gluten free suet come about I hear you ask? I’d put off making dumplings for two reasons, a) I didn’t know how to substitute suet and b) I didn’t think Bethany would like them anyway. In reality a) gluten free suet is so simple to recreate and b) Bethany loves them! Now I know this we’ll be having ‘proper’ beef stew over the winter for sure. In fact, now I have an excellent suet, I can get to work creating some delicious suet puddings too, ooh I feel a Jam Roly Poly coming on!…

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Free From - gluten, dairy, wheat, soya, egg
Keyword: Dairy Free, Dumplings, Gluten Free, Suet
Servings: 8 dumplings
Calories: 110 kcal
Author: Glutarama
Ingredients
  • 125 g gluten free plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 60 g homemade suet
  • 100 ml water
  • handful of chopped parsley optional
Instructions
  1. Add your homemade suet, plain flour, baking powder and chopped parsley to a bowl, begin to add the water a table spoon at a time and using a fork stir the mixture slowly bringing the ingredients together.

  2. Continue to add the water (you may not need the full 100ml) until you have a manageable dough with which you can roll into 8 balls.

  3. If not adding to a stew immediately place on a plate and cover with a damp cloth, tea towel or kitchen roll to prevent drying out and cracking.

  4. Add the dumplings to the last 25 minutes of cooking your stew. If you'd rather you can brown them off by removing the casserole lid for the last 5-10 minutes but this may dry out your dumplings
