Hey all! This is Jenn here and today I want to share with you my easy go to fall dessert! and it is vegan so – win! (especially if you are an allergy family or if you ran out of milk and eggs but need something sweet in a hurry). If you don’t want to eat it vegan go ahead and use regular milk and margarine.
I am going to put the recipe at the start, since I hate scrolling to the end for the recipe and then back up to get hints for steps. Hopefully this order is ok for all you readers. So without further dawdling here is the recipe for Vegan Caramel Pear Dumplings!
Vegan Caramel Pear Dumplings
Pre heat oven to 350 degress F
Cooking time 20-30 minutes
Pan size: 8×8
1cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups water
2T vegan margerine (I use becel vegan, but there is also earth balance and likely a few others out there)
Caramelize the above by bringing to a boil and letting it boil for a few minutes.
1/2cup white sugar
2 T vegan margarine
1/2cup almond milk
1cup sifted flour
1tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 peeled and chopped pear
Cream the margarine and sugar together with a fork or in your mixer, then add in the milk. Sift the dry ingredients together and add to the wet and mix ever so slightly and then add in the pear and mix until well combined.
Pour the batter into the glass baking dish and then drop the batter by spoonfuls into the sauce and bake.
Now for the picture hints 🙂
The boil, I do 3-5minutes. If you do less the sauce will stay runny when baking
ready to drop batter into sauce – the batter is pretty goopy.
Here is what it looks like with the batter in the sauce before baking, as you can see there is no “right” way to do this – don’t stress about even spoonfulls or a perfect looking batter drop.
Once it bakes up it looks like this, perfectly golden, sauce bubbled and soaked into the dumplings a bit. YUM!
There you have it! If you have 15 minutes and need a dessert this is the recipe for you!
