Caramel Dumplings

For as long as I can remember, this has been one of my favorite desserts – second only to a good creme brulee. I’m a huge fan of anything caramel and this dessert is ALL about the caramel. It is seriously yummy and so simple. It’s just moist, fluffy dumplings baked in a delicious caramel syrup. There’s something about Fall that really brings out my sweet tooth…

Caramel syrup:
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 cups water

Dumpling batter:
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350. In a stove-top pot on medium heat combine brown sugar and butter and stir frequently until just caramelized – about 5 minutes or so. Add water and boil for a few minutes. Transfer syrup to a shallow baking dish (8”x8”).

For the batter, cream sugar and butter together. Add milk and sift in flour, baking powder and salt. Drop by the spoonful into the caramel syrup. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
