       Title: Never fail Dumplings
  Categories: One-pot, Main dish, Camping
       Yield: 8 Dumplings
       3 ts Baking Powder
       1 c  Flour
       1 md Egg
       6 tb Cold water
       1 tb Oil
       1 ts Salt
   Beat the egg well then add the 6T of cold water. Measure the Water
   carefully. Add the oil and salt and whisk together. Mix the
   baking-powder and flour together. Blend the two mixes into a smooth
   batter quickly. Drop into boiling stew and cover continuing to boil
   for 15- 20 mins. Try to resist the urge to peek too often - the
   dumplings will rise and produce a light tender crust - a cold draught
   will cause them to fall. They can also be served as a dessert by
   cooking in boiling water and served with pancake syrup or jam
   drizzled over them. As a young boy scout in England during the war
   these were or main camp dessert as the ingredients were usually
   available from our skimpy home “Rations”. There we called them
   “Sinkers”. We cooked and ate them by the dozen with our “fresh-air”
   appetites and the name described the resulting feeling in our young
   bellies quite well ! When I am travelling I usually make up the dry
   ingredients into batches and carry them in zip-lock bags ready to add
   liquid and the egg when I am ready to use them.
