Apple Dumplings

Do you love apples like I do? I am a huge fan of apples and eat at least two a day. Of course, I love other fruit too, but apples are the numero uno when it comes to fruit. When I go to buy some, I tend to buy too many and then I start baking apple pies or eat them with peanut butter, which is a great snack by the way! Or I make this great dish, called Apple Dumplings.
You might notice this dish does not look fancy and appetizing at all, but trust me it is amazing. It is such an easy recipe and you can do it in minutes, and have a great breakfast/dinner/dessert ready.

You need:
500 grams apples of choice (Granny Smith are probably the best here)
1 egg
150 grams flour
A pinch of salt
½ cup sugar
½ cup bread crumbs
3 table spoons butter

Peel the apples and grate them. Let them stand for a few minutes and pour the liquid into a glass and drink it because you don't need the juice here. Put the apples together with the flour and salt into a medium sized bowl and mix well with a spoon. Now use your hands and try to form dumplings. Remember that your hands have to be a bit wet so the batter doesn't stick to it. Pour 2 liters of water in a bigger pot and bring to a boil.Carefully put the dumplings in and cook until they start to float to the top. This may take five minutes or so. Remove them from the water and set aside. Put the butter, sugar and bread crumbs in a medium sized sauce pan and let it slightly brown over low heat. Add the dumplings and turn them a few times in the mixture. Serve.


  1. My grandma use to make apple dumplings. Not like this but any type of apple dumplings always take me back to her kitchen when she was baking my favorite dessert. Thank you for bringing back the memories this morning!

  2. It is usually the dishes which looks plain that are the most delicious! But this looks delightful enough, anyway :-) Thank you for sharing at our All My Bloggy Friends Party !
