As the weather slowly starts to make its way from summer into autumn, comfort food is the thing that seems to be on everybody's mind. And what's more comforting than a delicious stack of french toast?
Not much, but these french toast dumplings (inspired by this recipe from Oh, Bite It) certainly give the classic a run for its money.
This recipe tastes like sugar heaven, so get ready to indulge big time with puffy biscuit dumplings simmered in maple syrup and cinnamon sugar.
1 Can Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
1.5 Cups Maple Syrup
1 cup cinnamon sugar mixture (mix to your preference)
In a large saucepan, bring maple syrup and approximately 1/2 cinnamon sugar mixture to a simmer.
While syrup is heating, cut each (uncooked) biscuit into fourths, rolling each section into a ball.
Drop them gently into the simmering syrup. Don't overfill the pot too much, as the biscuits are going to puff up.
Cover pot and let them simmer until they double in size. When this happens, turn them once to coat the other side and simmer for another 4-5 minutes, until biscuits appear to be cooked through.
Carefully remove biscuits from the syrup into your serving dish. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar mixture and enjoy!
