Blackberries, Dumplings & Ice Cream

This is one of my favorite desserts:

For the blackberries:

Mix in a heavy pan or dutch oven and bring to boil:

  • 1 12 oz bag of frozen blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • sprinkling of salt to taste
  • orange or lemon extract (several drops)


For the dumplings:

Mix together:

  • 2/3 cup Bisquick (or whatever brand of biscuit/pancake mix stuff)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • REAL grated nutmeg 1/8 tsp or so…I don’t measure.    REAL means get an actual nutmeg and grate it.


  • Quickly stir in 3 TB milk (or so) to dumpling or wet biscuit dough consistency.


  • Drop by teaspoonful into the bubbling blackberry mix.
  • Cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes or until the dumplings are done (when you stick in a toothpick and it comes out clean.)

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Oh my goodness, it’s good.

The above is enough for two generous servings.

    Oh wow. I’ll be trying this!

    (Though no blackberries are as good as the ones we picked at the pond :) )
