Amish Caramel Dumplings - The Southern Lady Cooks

These Amish Caramel Dumplings are so good! I found this recipe in an old cookbook and switched it up a bit to make it fit our taste, but it’s pretty close to the original. I made more sauce as we love caramel, and I knew my family would want extra. This is the perfect sweet treat! Serve warm and top with ice cream.. OH MY.. so good!

Amish Caramel Dumplings Ingredients Needed:


Baking Powder


Vanilla Extract

Sugar Milk


Brown Sugar

If you have followed our site for any time, you know we love Amish recipes. We have discussed visiting the Amish community near us and have always enjoyed their food and products. We used to go every week to the local Amish store to buy fresh homemade butter.

These dumplings are easy to make, and the caramel sauce is so good, especially over ice cream. The dumplings are light and fluffy, and delicious. If you love this type of recipe, you will also love our Blackberries and Dumplings. That is an old-fashioned classic my family has enjoyed for as long as I can remember.

Our most popular recipe is our Amish Pasta Salad, it has wonderful reviews, and if you love Amish recipes as we do, you will definitely want to make it!
