I’m not sure why, but the thought of making homemade apple dumplings always intimidated me. The delicious, gooey dough and apple just seemed a little out of my reach. But, it’s actually super easy – and amazingly good!

I haven’t yet mastered the art of my dumplings having that adorable “pinched” look at the top. It always seems to fluff, and expand – looking a little more like an apple fritter… But oh is it yummy!

Homemade Apple Dumplings

Apple Dumplings

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 6 Dumplings
Quick, easy, and super yummy!

Ingredients

  • 6 apples, peeled and cored

Dumpling Dough

  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp apple pie spice
  • ½ Cup milk
  • Cup butter, softened

Syrup

  • 2 Cups dark brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Cups water
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Prepare 9x13 baking dish with butter, cooking spray, or shortening

Dumpling Dough

  • In large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, apple pie spice)
  • Cut in the butter (You could use a stand mixer or food processor to make this step easier. You can also use your hands to crumble the butter)
  • Mix in milk until dough comes together nicely
  • On a very lightly floured surface work the dough together until uniform. Cut into 6 pieces. (For smaller dumplings, cut into 12)
  • Roll each piece of dough out and place an apple in the center. Bring dough up around the apple and press dough together at the top. (For smaller dumplings (12), place half of an apple in the center of dough)
  • Place dumplings in prepared 9x13 baking dish

Syrup

  • Melt butter in sauce pan, add brown sugar.
  • Add in water once brown sugar begins to dissolve
  • Mix in cinnamon.
  • Just as it begins to boil, remove and pour over dumplings
  • Bake dumplings 30 minutes. I like to remove them at least once and use a baster to generously pour syrup back over the dumplings. I also use the baster to pour syrup back over the dumplings just before I serve them.
  • Serve alone for a breakfast, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an incredibly delicious desert!
