  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 3/4 cup Mountain Dew
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Slowly pour in the Mountain Dew, stirring gently, until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. In a separate saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, water, ground cinnamon, and lemon zest (if using). Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  6. Once the sugar mixture is ready, carefully spoon it over the prepared baking dish.
  7. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the simmering sugar mixture in the baking dish.
  8. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the dumplings are golden brown and cooked through.
  9. Remove the baking dish from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
  10. Serve the Mountain Dew Dumplings warm, either on their own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat. Enjoy!
