Grand-Père Canadien

Updated on April 5, 2018


This actual recipe is my grandmother's secret which she actually chose to share with me after many years of hearing me beg. 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. It can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, so it's always possible to make a bigger batch if you desire. Enjoy!


1 1/4 cups of flour

2 tablespoons of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 egg

2 tablespoons of grease

Step one:

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.

Step two:

Add the grease cut into little cubes and mix until well incorporated.

Step three:

Pour in the milk and stir once again. The dough should be firm enough at this point.

Step four:

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.

Step five:

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.
