Blackberries are one of my favorites, and I found this recipe on the Simply Recipe site: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/blackberry_slump/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=feed%253a+elise%252fsimplyrecipes+%2528simply+recipes%2529

BLACKBERRY SLUMP

Dumplings:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup whole milk

Berries:

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen (defrosted and drained) blackberries
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet your berries and how sweet you would like your slump to be)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Whipping cream or vanilla ice cream for topping

Method

1 In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut the butter into small cubes and add to the flour. Using a pastry cutter, two knives, or your clean hands, cut the butter into the flour until the flour resembles a coarse meal. Add the milk all at once and stir until the flour is just moistened. Handling the dough as little as possible, form into a ball. Set aside.

2 In a 2-qt saucepan, add the berries, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, lemon zest, and water. Heat until boiling, stirring a few times so that the berries are well coated with the sauce. Once the berry mixture is boiling, tear off spoonful chunks from the dough ball and drop onto the fruit around the edges of the pot. You should have enough dough for 6 dumplings. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 25 minutes, without peeking at the dumplings.

Place dumplings in serving bowls and top with berries. Serve with cream or ice cream. Serve hot or chilled.

That looks so yummy!  I love blackberries as well, but I bet this would be good with other kinds of fruit as well (blueberries in particular).

Every summer, we go out into the woods and pick fresh wild blackberries. Wild blackberries have so much more flavor...they are my favorite. When we get home, we always make what we call a blackberry cobbler, with homemade vanilla ice cream(the kids make it, its kick the can ice cream, lol). Its a lot like this, and its soooo good. The rest of the berries we freeze for other uses. (Like filled cookies, blackberry pie, and blackberry cake)

 We had a blackberry patch in the back of the garden when I was growing up, and mom would make blackberry dumplings.......geeeeez, they were SO good!

Wow, that looks so good! I love berry desserts because they remind me of all the times we'd go berry picking as a kid. I really need to look into U pick farms when the season rolls around. So much fun!
