Family Recipe Friday - Blackberry Dumplings

This is one of our favorite desserts of all time! Rich, sweet, and a taste of pure heaven!

Blackberry Dumplings
1 quart fresh blackberries, rinsed and drained [I use frozen when these are out of season]
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
In a heavy pot over medium/high heat bring the ingredients to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
1-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1-tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk [I usually have to add another tablespoon more]
Mix the dumpling ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. Then drop by tablespoonful into the blackberry mixture. After dropping the dough into the pot, cover with a lid and leave to simmer for 20-30 minutes.
Dumplings will be light and fluffy and infused with the blackberry liquid.
Serve warm [one dumpling and a big spoon of berries per serving]. Top with vanilla ice-cream.
This is one of those summertime favorites that will have your tongue slapping your forehead silly wanting more!
