What makes dumplings heavy instead of light and fluffy?

Use more baking soda than the recipe calls for and make sure not to overcook the dumplings. Good luck!

With all light dumplings make sure the liquid you boil them in, is at a wild, rolling boil, and partially cover the pot after you add a few dumplings. Don't add so many that the boil flattens out.

Draft can also kill them. Ensure that no doors or windows get opened during that part. If you make fruit or meat/veggie core dumplings, make sure the mix is at least hand warm before you fold the dough around it.


Bread or Piza dough is quite reliable and makes much better dumplings than soda cheaters.

Add more milk to the recipe. Just a little.

Also, once you put the dumplings in the boiling liquid, do not stir them.
