French Toast Dumplings…Simmered in Maple Syrup!

Posted: February 4, 2013 in French Roast, recipe

I saw this the recipe the other day and thought “I have Grands Biscuits and I love cinnamon. I have to try this. And I will try it after this post ;-). I like easy and I like a short list of everyday ingredients and I love sweets. So this was a no brainer. Here is the link where I got the recipe Oh Bite It just in case you want to go there. Enjoy!

What you’ll need:

1 can of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits

1.5 cups Maple Syrup..good quality if possible

1/3 cup Brown Sugar

1 tsp. Nutmeg

1 cup cinnamon Sugar (1 part Sugar to 1/2 part Cinnamon)

A dollop of Mascarpone..optional


In a medium sauce pot add the Maple Syrup and the Brown Sugar..bring up to a simmer

Cut each raw biscuit into fourths and roll each section into a ball

Gently add them into the simmering syrup..leaving room for them to puff up..they get puffy!

Cover them and let them simmer until they are doubled in size..turning them once, to coat each side of the dumplings evenly in the thick and amazing reduced syrup sauce!

Let them cool. While they’re cooling, mix up the cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg in a bowl..set aside.

Gently toss each dumpling in the Cinnamon/Sugar/Nutmeg mix..for that French Toast crunch!

Pile a few dumplings into your bowl and top them with a scoop of Mascarpone or Sour Cream & a nice drizzle of the reduced Maple Syrup Crack Sauce!

O my!! Take a bite of the most soft, tender and incredible version of French Toast you’ll ever have! ~Enjoy!
