A very Canadian recipe using Pure Canadian Maple Syrup #1 Light. Do not use imitation Maple Syrup. This recipe came from one of Canadas main producers/suppliers of Maple Syrup in Quebec Canada.
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons shortening, cut into small pieces
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 1⁄4 cups light maple syrup
- In a bowl, sift flour, measure and re-sift with baking powder and salt. Add shortening and mix well until shortening is fine. Add milk, blend. Dough will be quite firm.
- Heat 2 cups of maple syrup in a frying pan; bring to a boil over medium to high heat. Lower heat so that the syrup is not boiling and drop spoonfuls of dough into the syrup. Cover and poach for 12 to 15 minutes, making sure syrup is not boiling.
- Serve hot with remaining maple syrup.
Dumplings for dessert? What a marvelous idea! I couldn't find Canadian maple syrup, so I used Michigan pure maple (please forgive). I made half the recipe and it was fabulous. Since the syrup is a bit expensive, I'll be saving this recipe for special occasions. Thanks for sharing Raelene. Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.
