Laz's Johnnycake dumplings are so light on the inside and crisp on the outside. Perfect for sopping up that gravy, baby!
Canola oil, for deep frying
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
1/3 cup whole milk
Let's get Cooking...
Heat canola oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat until it registers 325°F.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles pea-size crumbles. Add the milk and form into a dough. Divide the dough into 7 or 8 (2-ounce) balls. Working in small batches, fry the dumplings until puffed and golden brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel and drain. Serve.
