This is an oldie but always great for family and friends. The dumpling part can be doubled also to make 16 dumplings, just use a skillet with lid so they all fit over the sauce ingredients.
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup whole milk
- 1⁄4 cup chopped pecans
- Place all sauce ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a nice even simmer.
- I get the sauce going so it can start to thicken while you are preparing the dumplings.
- In a bowl add dry ingredients and combine well.
- In a cup measure the milk and butter and simmer in microwave until the butter has melted.
- Pour warm milk onto the dry ingredients and combine with the nuts, mix well, and knead three times.
- Roll into balls, if too sticky just drop 8 portions onto the simmering sauce.
- Cover with lid and cook at an even simmer 10 to 12 minutes until done.
- Uncover slightly and let sit four minutes on low, just to continue thickening the sauce underneath.
- Remove to bowls and serve with some sauce and raisins and a small portion of pouring cream on top.
Excellent! So glad I came across this recipe as it's almost exactly like my mom used to make, she didn't add the pecans. She would make this as a special treat at night in the winter. The sauce didn't quite thicken up for me, so will uncover a bit sooner next time.
my mother always made this pudding, but she called it 'half hour pudding' and it was made without the nuts. Good hot or cold, and really good with ice cream!!! Thanks for posting
