How to make it

  • Combine the cornflour, flour, custard powder and salt and mix it to a paste with a little milk. Boil the rest of the milk and in the flour mixture slowly. Stir continuously till it thickens, taking care that it does not burn. Beat the whites and yolks of the egg separately. Add the yolks to the above mixture and mix well. Remove from heat and fold in the stiffly beaten whites. Add the vanilla essence. Dish the mixture, a tablespoon at a time, into a serving dish, pouring your melted butter and your cinnamon-and-sugar over each dumpling. Serve hot.

    Sounds just yummy. :)) It is my friends birthday coming up and I would love to surprise him with this scrumptious sounding dessert. Any secret tips I should use when making this complex masterpiece?

    Hi Adam! Welcome to Group Recipes! You got me intrigued straight away with the title of your Fairy Dumplings. That's awesome! The recipe is not at all hard to follow. Grandma's usually have really great instructions! :) You are very lucky to have been handed down such wonderful memories. I have bookmarked this to try. I love cinnamon and sugar! Thanks for sharing such a lovely dessert!
