Sweet And Sour Dessert Dumplings aka Vinegar Dumplings


  • 1 stick (1/2 c.) butter or margerine
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg


  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1/2 c. milk

Melt butter and mix all ingredients in a pot with a tight fitting lid. Stir regularly. Bring to a simmer.

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in milk to make a ball of soft dough.

Drop teaspoons on the dumpling dough into the simmering vinegar sauce. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes without lifting the lid. Serve hot and enjoy this true hillbilly dessert!
