An old Amish neighbor taught me how to make this very simple, yet delicious recipe...she was always making simple treats and sending to us...for favors we did for them...I miss her cooking since we moved...this was the last recipe she shared with me...

I added my own touch to the recipe, adding pecans...

I think Rachel would approve and be proud of how mine turned out...

I hope you give this simple recipe a try...the sticky ooey gooey syrup is delicious over ice cream...

How to Make Brown Sugar Dumplings and Pecans - Delish

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    In a 9 x 13 baking dish...mix the brown sugar, water...add butter, and place dish in preheated oven. Prepare dumplings.
  2. In a medium bowl; mix dumpling ingredients until thoroughly combined...if too thick, add a bit more milk, just enough to incorporate the dry ingredients.
  3. Now, take pan from oven...make sure butter is melted into the syrup...stir around a little.

    Using a tablespoon, place heaping dollops of dough into the hot syrup. You should get 12 dumpling, 3 per row.

    Sprinkle with pecans, if using, sometimes I put them into the syrup first. It doesn't matter.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until dumplings are completely cooked.
  5. Place dumplings into serving dish, and ladle desired amount of syrup over the dumpling, and ice cream if using...it's delicious!
