Sunday Brunch: Maple Syrup Dumplings
Editor's note: Each Saturday morning we bring you a Sunday Brunch recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.
These sweet dumplings blur the line between brunch and dessert, but some mornings call for a bit of sugar, or maple syrup. Instead of using syrup as a garnish it becomes the central player in this warm, sweet breakfast. These dumplings come out plump and coated in reduced syrup, and although the rye whiskey is optional it adds an agreeable boozy element to this dish. A big plate of smokey bacon for dunking (trust me) and a pot of coffee round out this brunch perfectly.
