These fried dumplings, or as we call them in Jamaica, "dumplin", are a simple for anyone wanting to try breadfruit flour.


  • Breadfruit Flour 1 cup

  • Cassava Flour 1/2 cup 

  • Instant Oats 1/2 cup 

  • Baking Powder 5 tbps 

  • Salt1/2 tsp

  • Cold Margerine/Shortening/Butter 2 tbps 

  • Cold coconut cream (thick milk) 2 tbsp 

  • Cold water


  1. Mix all dry ingredients well

  2. Shave the cold margerine into the dry ingredients and break into the mixture with a fork until evenly distributed.

  3. Add coconut cream and lightly mix

  4. Add cold water gradually while mixing; it should not be sticky and there should still be lots of dry mix

  5. When dough begins to form, knead with hands until it comes together into a ball; it should not be sticky but all of the mixture should have moisture

  6. Let rest for ten minutes.

  7. Break into smaller pieces and form neat balls.

  8. Heat a frying pan with oil about 1/2” deep on a medium flame.

  9. Lower flame and carefully fry on all sides till golden brown

Pair with avocado, ackee (with or without saltfish), porridge, or anything you can think of.
