    This was delicious! I’ve made the recipe at least three times. The last time I added crushed red pepper to help clear our sinuses from a cold. Very good! Didn’t have nutmeg the first time so I substituted a tiny pinch of ground cloves. This recipe has come out well every time- whether it was followed to the letter or even with slight variations.

    The dumplings were a bit dense for my taste. Any suggestions on how to make them fluffier? The nutmeg was a great addition! I’ve never used nutmeg in dumplings!!

    This dish is delicious, but the dumplings are a bit of a mess. First time, I used heaping tbsp,of batter and the dumplings were barely cooked inside. Second time, halved it and used a heaping tsp, of batter, came out better but still not quite cooked through and they are doughy. Can you re-evaluate this recipe? Because otherwise, the flavor and consistency of the dish itself is wonderful!!

      Hi Andie –
      As everyone measures differently, I suggest weighing the mix for proper measurements. Each cup of the Baking & Pancake mix should weigh 140g.
      I Hope this helps.
