2 Tbsp sugar

1 tbsp milk

1 egg

1 cup flour

1.5 tsp baking powder


1Sauce - Place all ingredients in sc on high and leave to near boiling again, approx 1/2hr. (Alternatively, bring to boil in a pot and place into sc) While this is heating up, prepare the dumplings.


3Dumplings 1 - Mix dry ingredients together. Rub butter in. Add milk and mix well.

4(Handy tip for the butter, drop the cold butter into the dry ingreds and coat then grate into the dry ingreds.)




8Dumplings 2 - Cream together butter and sugar.

9Add egg and mix well.

10Then add flour and baking powder and mix.

11Finally add 1 Tbsp milk and mix well.


13With damp hands, roll the mix into approx 12 small dumplings.


15Carefully drop these into the Caramel Sauce mix. Place a tea towel under the lid of the sc.

16Cook on High for approx 40 minutes or high 20 minutes and then low 30 minutes.

Yum! Yum! Yum! My son said it was ‘satisfyingly delicious’ and my daughter said it was ‘top notch’. I have to agree with both of them.

I came across this one about half an hour before tea and decided to go for it. It was SO EASY to make and quite QUICK from start to finish. I used the 1.5L and it fit perfectly. I made 7 decent sized dumplings from the mix. Will make 8 next time so we have 2 each. The sauce was so TASTY. It was a little runny but it was PERFECT with the dumplings and ice-cream. Maybe more dumplings would soak in more sauce. Either way, we will definitely make this again!!!

These were very quick and easy to make. I made the cake version but found it too dense. I will make again using the scone version next time.

Yum! I did the #2 dumpling mix and didn’t have plain flour so just used SR flour and left out the baking powder. They were delicious and perfect size recipe for the 1.5 litre SC. Made approx 10 dumplings.

This is great as a Thanksgiving side dish. It goes great with ham. This was one of my mother’s recipes growing up. These were those special occasion dishes that were always a hit.

At last minute decided to whip these up, they are so easy and delicious with minimal ingredients. Timing was pretty much spot on, although the sauce was still quite runny. Very yummy with a scoop of ice cream.

Saw this on the Facebook page and, at the last minute, decided to give it a go. Had all the ingredients in already. Our son is severely allergic to egg so we had dumplings 1. This was delicious with some vanilla ice cream! Thanks!

Just made these for dessert. So quick, easy and yum! Substituted SR flour for the flour & baking powder. We all enjoyed this one ?
