Soda Pop Dumplings

 Soda Pop Dumplings

This dessert is not new, you can find it in many places, out here in blogland. But this dessert is different, because it does not call for any prepackaged foods or ingredients, except the Ginger Ale. These delicious little bites of apple pie flavored dumplings are made with a convenient homemade biscuit mix. Not just any mix, a mix that calls for oil instead of hydrogenated vegetable shortening.  You can find that original recipe here, and remember it makes a lot of great stuff, just like any other biscuit mix will do. You won't regret the few minutes invested to make up a batch. And now on to those little morsels shown above!

Soda Pop Dumplings
by the seat of my pants
350 degree oven

2 1/2 c all purpose mix
1/4 c sugar
1/4 t cinnamon
2/3 c warm water
1 package yeast
small amount of all purpose flour for kneading and rolling

Dissolve the yeast in the water, set aside to proof. Combing the all purpose mix, sugar and cinnamon, combine well. Add the proofed yeast and stir to moisten.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and easy to handle.

Roll out into a rectangle approximately 1/4 inch thick. Cut in half down the center, then crosswise to make quarter sections. Each quarter section will be cut into 9 strips.

3 apples, peeled, quartered and each quarter cut into 3 slices,

Wrap a strip of dough around each apple slice as shown, place into a prepared baking pan.

1 c ginger ale
1 c sugar
1 cube butter
2 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg

Bring to a boil, stir to dissolve sugar, pour over dumplings (they will begin to puff up and float, it is OK!)

Bake 35-45 minutes.

Serve warm with a little vanilla ice cream.

As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments.
