Now, the original recipe called for dark sweet cherries but my family loves the blackberries that we pick down by the river. I freeze pounds and pounds of them and use them in this recipe through the winter.
Here we go:
BLACKBERRIES WITH CINNAMON DUMPLINGS
32oz of frozen blackberries (or cherries, or blueberries, or strawberries, or whatever kind of fruit you want!)
1/3 c sugar
1 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c raw milk (or whatever milk you drink but preferably whole)
1tsp sugar plus some cinnamon mixed in to make a cinnamon-sugar topping
While you're waiting for that to cook, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl, stir in milk, mixing just until a wet dough forms.
Reduce heat to medium low and spoon big tablespoons of the dough over the simmering fruit.
Sprinkle your cinnamon-sugar topping over dumplings and cover skillet with a lid.
Simmer gently until dumplings are set and dry to the touch, about 10-12 minutes.
Serve with a little vanilla ice cream and enjoy!Timber says "Mmmmmmmmmmmmm"
