Amish Brown Sugar Dumplings - The Southern Lady Cooks

This recipe for Amish Brown Sugar Dumplings is adapted from a recipe in a very old Amish cookbook I’ve had for years. I have added a few ingredients and used a little less sugar. This is so good served with ice cream or whipped cream on top. A great dessert to serve anytime. Keeps well in the fridge and can be reheated or even served cold. It is good with a glass of milk or with coffee.

Amish brown sugar dumplings are delicious.

Batter Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

1 cup raisins

2 tablespoons butter, softened

1 cup milk

Syrup Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2 cups water

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Stir in the nuts and raisins. Cut in the softened butter. Add milk and stir. The dough should come together in kind of a large ball. It should all be wet but not real sticky. Next, combine the syrup ingredients except for the vanilla extract in a pot on top of the stove and bring to a boil. Remove the syrup, stir in the vanilla extract and pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Drop spoonfuls of the batter on top of the hot syrup. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 30 to 35 minutes until the batter is done on top. Makes 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!

Note: The Amish recipe I have does not call for the cinnamon, raisins, nuts or vanilla extract. Their recipes very often do not show exact measurements either. You can experiment with this and leave out what you don’t like, etc. The recipe above is the way I make it for my family.
