Corn Dumplings Recipe

Cornmeal and kernel corn give a double dose of harvest flavor to the soft dumplings. I serve them with chicken and gravy.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:8-9 servings


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup chopped whole kernel corn
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 quarts chicken broth


  • 1. In a saucepan, combine cornmeal, salt and water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until very thick. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in corn, butter, onion and pepper; let stand for 3 minutes. Add egg; mix well. In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour and baking powder. Add to cornmeal mixture; beat well. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls; roll in remaining flour to lightly coat. In a Dutch oven or kettle, bring broth to a boil. Add dumplings. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Yield: 8-9 servings.
