This is a quick, yummy recipe that makes it's own hard sauce. Serve it with real cream. It's an old German recipe my family has made for many holidays.

The first time I tried this recipe I was really disappointed. However I made some modifications on it tried it again and am thoroughly enjoying it as I type. I cut the water and brown sugar down to 1/3c and increased the flour a bit to make a thicker batter. Having done that I really like the recipe! Read More

This is a fantastic dessert. I have all the ingredients in the pantry at all times. I boil the water and butter together and mix the sauce in the pan. One pan for the dough and clean up is a snap. I add 1 tsp ground cinnamon to either the sauce or the dough (but not both!) Recommend it most highly. Read More
