[The Secret Recipe Club] - Apple Dumplings, the best I ever made...

It's posting time again for my group of the The Secret Recipe Club.
As you already know by now, there are four groups of lovely bloggers who visit each other's assigned blogs keeping it a secret from one another until the big reveal day.
For me there are two exciting moments: First one when I get the email of my assigned blog and second one when I see who was assigned to me and what recipe(s) they made and what they think about my blog in general.
Hold your breath for the following reveal days:
Group A - October 8 Group B - October 15 Group C - October 22 Group D - October 29
How this all works? well, just click on that logo on the left and you will get to a whole wonderful website that will answer all your questions and more!
Why I joined? Because I think it is a fun way to discover new blogs and - again - step outta my comfort zone a bit by being assigned an unknown blog and having to find a recipe that suits me and tempts me to cook myself.

My assigned blogger for this month was Lisa of "Cook Lisa Cook". Honestly I fell in love with her blog, there were a lit of recipes I marked for later cooking or baking and it was hard to narrow it down to the recipe I actually wanted to make for the SRC reveal day.

Here are my favourites: Bacon & Cheese Zucchini Fritters, Cheaters Chicken Soup (will make it soon to stock up on chicken soup for autumny days), Double Mousse Cake, Mango Melon Banana & Chia Smoothie (I already made this and I loved it!), Skinny Blueberry and Lemon Muffins, Slimmed down loaded potato & Buffalo Chicken Caserole and last but not least the ones I finally made for SRC: Apple Dumplings.

The are so lovely: with few ingredients you can whip up a nice Sunday Dessert in just minutes. We love apples here. It's a love I share with my Mum whose most favorite sweet thing is a homemade apple strudel. I was very curious of how Lisa's recipe would taste.  There were some minor changes in the recipe, mostly due to limitations of my pantry: we do not have frozen apple juice concentrate here so I just finely grated some apples and added a pinch of sugar, let it sit for a few minutes to give the juice time to come out ;o) I also used fresh apple juice instead of the water and didn't have any nuts on hand (silly me forgot to check and realized the were all gone when I as in the middle of baking) so I just crumbled some  Italian nut cookies on top of all. I also used a home made dough for the wrapping of the apples I first made with my fellow BBB Babes, I always have some of this in the freezer.

@Lisa~~, I loved your blog and those lovely recipes! :)
maybe I should explain, that we do not have as many premade doughs and stuff around here like y'all have in the US and elsewhere and that sometimes really makes me jealous because I understand that it makes things much easier at times. That's the main reason I keep homemade premade dough in my freezer actually ;o)

Mmm, a warm apple dumpling aside a cold scoop of ice cream. Could there be anything better?

I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don't know who you are but definitely you're going to a famous blogger if you aren't already ;) Cheers!

Thank you for cooking from my blog this month. I'm betting that your dumplings with homemade dough, put mine to shame. I love all your adaptations.

If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC entry Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings.

Great SRC pick! I also did an apple recipe this month, something about them just screams fall. I'll have to try these apple dumplings, the recipe looks so easy :-)
