1 tablespoon of flour
150g self raising flour
60g chilled butter, cut into small pieces
60g mature cheddar, grated1 egg beaten
1-2 tbsp milk
Put the dumpling ingredients together in a bowl and stir to a soft dough. Be careful not to overmix, so just bring it together. (At this point I used my hands to rub in the butter slightly before adding the milk and egg, although this was not specified) Add the dumplings at the end of the cooking time, leave the lid off and cook until golden and crusty for about 20 minutes.
