Stir wet mix with dry, adding a little more buttermilk as needed to create a stiff batter. 4. Drop large spoonfuls of mix into liquid. Bring to a steady simmer, cover and cook until set and toothpick comes out clean, about 10 minutes. 5. Fish dumplings out with slotted spoon and serve.
These are a great addition if you're already making soup. Just cook them on top of the boiling soup instead of water! Depending on the soup you may have to add a little extra broth to make sure they float above the rest of the soup.
