So my dad saw this recipe for apple dumplings on facebook and asked me if i could make some for him. There was just one problem.... it was an american recipe.. and here down under our biscuits are to be dipped in coffee! so i did a little research and made up with what i think would be pretty close to the american biscuit dough (if you're american and make this can you let me know how i went). This dish is so scrummy. Its pretty much apple chunks wrapped in this soft bread like dough cooking in a buttery , sugar mix with... wait for it... lemonade! sounds sickly but its so delicious and moreish! go on give it a go your fall in love!
2 1/4 Cup Plain Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Milk
3 Apples, cored and quartered
1/2 Cup Butter, melted
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Country Apple Pie Seasoning or Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 180'c and lightly spray a brownie tin (or any other tin you want to use) with baking spray.
To make biscuit add flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to your kitchenaid bowl and mix together. Put in your mixing paddle and add butter to bowl. Mix on a slow speed until mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then add half the milk and mix, add the rest of the milk till combined. Change to a dough hook and knead for 10-15mins (you may need to add a few spoonfuls of flour to stop any sticking).
Whilst dough is kneading combine melted butter with sugar, vanilla and seasoning, until it forms a paste.
Roll out your dough mix until you can get 12 equal triangles (make sure the wide end is bigger than your apple in length). Wrap each apple slice in a triangle starting at the wide end and finishing with the pointy end. Pinch the sides to encase the apple and place in a baking tin (that can fit the 12 dough bundles, my brownie slice tin was perfect) repeat until all apples are wrapped and fitted snug into your tin. Spread over your butter and sugar paste all over the rolls until it's all gone. Pour over lemonade and place in the oven for 30-40mins or until dough is cooked. Serve with ice cream, cream or custard.
