Everybody has eaten strawberry shortcake, but how many have eaten strawberry dumplings?
Take one egg, a cup of sweet milk, a tablespoon of melted butter, a heaping tablespoon of baking powders and flour enough to make a batter that will be a trifle thicker than that which is used for griddle cakes.
Pour a little batter into buttered tins, place a number of well sweetened berries in the center and cover them with more batter. Then steam for about half an hour.
Serve with a sauce made by washing some strawberries and incorporating them into an ordinary hard butter and sugar sauce.
