1. Dombolo (dumplings)!

Dombolo recipe

Cook’s note: If you cover the dough with clingwrap, spray the clingwrap with cooking spray before covering so the dough doesn’t stick. For something different, try adding a cup of drained canned corn kernels. You can make dumplings using half mielie meal and half cake flour, but you can use only flour if you prefer.
