An alternative way of making these when you don't want to use the stove top or oven. Watch times of cooking....I used a 1200wt Microwave.


  1. To make dumplings: Rub butter into the flour and then add sugar, milk& vanilla essence.
  2. Mix well and set aside while making the sauce.
  3. To make the sauce: Place butter, water& brown sugar in a 2L microwave safe casserole dish and cook on high for 6 mins.
  4. Drop Tablespoons of batter mix into the hot sauce and cook on Medium for 6 mins.
  5. Leave to stand in hot sauce for another 5 mins.
  6. Serve with whipped cream&/or vanilla ice-cream.

MMM Good. The sauce reminds me of my grandma's apple dumpling sauce. I think the sauce would be good on ice cream without dumplings!

Easy to make and the boyfiend gobbled his up and licked the bowl clean, but it was too sweet for me. I should have read Jewelies review and made them smaller.
