Meet the Cook: The "guinea pig" for my cooking is my husband. But this recipe is one we enjoyed at my grandmother's house. It's perfect for dessert or church socials. -Shari Dore, Brantford, Ontario

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 386 calories, 7 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 18 mg cholesterol, 213 mg sodium, 79 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine apricots and tapioca; let stand for 15 minutes. Add the brown sugar, butter and lemon juice. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a full boil. Reduce heat to low; keep warm.
  2. For dumplings, in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder; cut in butter until crumbly. Add milk; mix just until combine. Pour warm fruit mixture into an ungreased 2-qt. baking dish (mixture will be very thick). Drop the batter into six mounds onto fruit mixture.
  3. Cover and bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while baking).
  4. In a small saucepan, bring brown sugar and water to a boil; cook until sugar is dissolved. Spoon over dumplings; bake, uncovered, 5 minutes longer. Serve with cream if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
