Just think of these hot, gooey and tender dumplings as French Toast unplugged! With every melt in your mouth bite, you get all of the greatness of French Toast, with over the top, almost too good to be true delicious Dumpling decadence!

  • Servings: 8-10
  • Prep Time: 10-12 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes


1½ cups Maple Syrup, good quality if possible
⅓ cup Brown Sugar
1 can Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 cup Cinnamon Sugar, 1 part sugar to ½ 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. Cover them and let them simmer until they’ve 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 and 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 and a nice drizzle of the reduced Maple Syrup Sauce! Take a bite of the most soft, tender and incredible version of French Toast you’ll ever have! ~Enjoy
