French Toast Dumplings

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 flavor!  These fluffy, yet tender & soft dumplings are seriously one of the best things I’ve ever put in my mouth!  They’re beyond explanation. In a matter of minutes you can be starting your day with a steaming bowl of the best and most unique French Toast breakfast you’ve ever had.


  • 1 can of Pillsbury Grands flaky layers biscuit
  • 1.5 cup good quality maple syrup
  • 0.33 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup cinnamon sugar (1 part sugar to ½ part cinnamon)
  • 1 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 then set it aside. Gently toss each dumpling in the cinnamon/sugar/nutmeg mix for that French Toast crunch! Finally, 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.
