DIRECTIONS

  • Heat ½ cup of the sugar in a large pan, until it melts to a golden brown syrup.
  • Add butter, salt, and remaining sugar.
  • Gradually add the hot water, stirring constantly.
  • Heat to boiling and cook until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • Drizzle in butter and mix well.
  • Add walnuts; stir in milk and only mix until flour is moistened.
  • Drop by ¼ cup spoonfuls into gently boiling caramel sauce.
  • Cover tightly and simmer about 12 minutes without removing cover.
  • To serve, invert a serving platter over the top of the pan and flip the pan over quickly. (If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, you can use a spatula to remove the dumplings from the pan and transfer to a serving platter).
  • Serve at once with whipped cream or ice cream.
