Dumpling recipe: from on 2003-11-11

Does anyone have a recipe for dumplings made with wholemeal flour please, I have tried my own but they are very heavy and like bullets in the middle

Use a traditional beef suet, from a quality butcher. Using Veg suet ( made from powdered rice and hard fat ) is one of the caues of heavy dumps,
You will never get really light dumplings with wholemeal flour. Try wholemeal breadcrumbs (use a fresh loaf) and lightly nead togeather with a small amount of water and a rising agent , like baking powder
