Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Add Cornmeal (1/2 cup), All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Ground Cinnamon (1 pinch), Baking Powder (1/2 Tbsp), and Granulated Sugar (1 tsp) to a bowl and give it a good whisk to mix everything together.
step 2
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Then add a bit of the lukewarm Water (to taste) at a time and mix until you have a dough. The dough should be firm, but soft. Knead for about 2-3 minutes then prepare to separate into dumplings.
step 3
Pinch off a piece, then shape like a small cigar.
step 4
Now flatten out from the center, until you have a shaped dumpling.
step 5
Heavily season the boiling water with salt. Place them into the pot and cook for about 15 minutes. They will get bigger in size and float when they’re fully cooked.
step 6
Drain and serve warm.
step 7
If you don’t have a topping for these, you can certainly toss it in some butter or olive oil and crack in some fresh black pepper. Enjoy.
