Blackberries and Dumplings

If you follow this site,  I am sure you know how much I like blackberries.  I could eat blackberries everyday and I love having blackberries for dessert with any meal.  This recipe for Blackberries and Dumplings has been one of my favorites since childhood.  I can remember my Mama making blackberries and dumplings with wild blackberries we picked from the field.  A friend brought me some blackberries recently and I had to make this for dessert Saturday night. If you have not had blackberry dumplings try this recipe for a treat your family will love.

Blackberries and dumplings is a recipe you will love trying for a new dessert.

Blackberry Syrup: 

3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries

1/4 cup white granulated sugar

2 cups water

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Dumplings

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (can use more if needed)

1/4 cup white granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup milk

Combine blackberries, sugar, water and nutmeg in a saucepan on top of the stove.  Bring to a boil, then turn down to medium boil and cover the pot.   In a bowl whisk together the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Mix the milk into the flour mixture with a spoon.  Your dough should be where you can flour your hands and pull off pieces and roll into balls about the size of a walnut.  I just put some flour on a paper plate and flour my hands good to do this. You can add a little more flour to the dumplings if you need to so you can handle the dough.  Remove lid from pot and drop in the dumplings.  Replace the top and cook 5 to 7 minutes until dumplings are cooked.  You should get 11 to 12 dumplings from your dough.  Makes about six servings. (I consider a serving 2 dumplins’ with sauce ladled over them.)  Serve with ice cream or whipped cream for dessert or a treat anytime. Enjoy!
