MTN Dew Apple Dumplings
It is amazing how much fun BUT how much work it is to cook in Dutch Ovens. We made these desserts and had 4 Dutch Ovens going all at once. We enjoyed these different Apple Dumplings, Peach Dumplings, and the Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. If you don’t have Dutch Ovens these two recipes are great in regular pans too.
Mt. Dew Apple or Peach Dumplings
2 (8 count) cans crescent rolls
4 Gala or Granny Smith Apples
1 cups sugar
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter, melted
2 tea. Cinnamon
1 (12 ounce) can Mountain Dew Soda (Not sugar free) or Sprite
Spray a 13X9 baking dish with cooking spray. Peel and slice the fruit. Cut each apple into 4ths and remove seeds, you will have 16 pieces total. Separate the roll dough. Roll each apple slice in one section of the crescent roll dough. Place rolled apple slices in pan, seam side down. Melt butter, combine with the sugars and spoon over each apple. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the top of each dumpling. Pour the can of Mountain Dew around the dumplings. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
This is perfect in a #12 Dutch Oven. Put 6 coals on the bottom and 18 on the top. Cook for about 50 minutes. You can also half the recipe and cook in a #10 Dutch Oven or a 9x9 pan.
** Can also be made with peaches.
Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
1 cup flour
¾ cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoon baking powder
¼ tea. Salt
½ cup milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter
½ cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
1 teaspoons Vanilla
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 TB cocoa
1 cup hot water
Mix cake ingredients together. Pour into a greased 8X8 inch baking dish. To make the topping, mix both sugars and cocoa together. Sprinkle this over the cake batter. Slowly pour the water over the batter and sugar mixture. DO NOT STIR. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes. Serve hot, great with ice cream. The cake rises to the top and creates hot fudge topping on the bottom.
This is great in a #10 Dutch Oven. Put 5 coals on the bottom and 15 on the top. Cook for about 40 minutes. You can also double the recipe and cook in a #12 Dutch oven or a 13x9 pan.
** You can make this Gluten free by using GF flour and ½ teaspoon Xanthium gum.
Hope you enjoy these!
