I have made it countless times, for my own family as well as friends and it was a success for every occasion. The ingredients are simple and the cooking time is short, which makes this delicious recipe a piece of cake to whip up.

Start by sifting your flour by itself and then sifting it once again along with the baking powder and the salt. Place in a bowl.
Add the grease cut into little cubes and mix until well incorporated.
Pour in the milk and stir once again. The dough should be firm enough at this point.
In a large saucepan, heat the two cups of warm water and the two cups of brown sugar. Once boiling, drop the dough by the spoonful into the syrup mixture.
Lower the heat to a medium, cover and let the dumplings poach for approximately 12-15 minutes.
Serve warm with the syrup ladled over top. Can also be served with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or simply milk.
