As a child, I was reared on a small farm in southeast Georgia, and tobacco was our main crop. Now blueberries are the main crop in our small town, which has a blueberry festival each year. This recipe was the winner in 2008! —Evelyn Dunlap, Nicolls, Georgia
If you’re looking for something different from the usual cakes and fruit pies, try this old-fashioned dessert. It features a delicious combination of blackberries and blueberries with homemade dumplings on top.
THIS recipe is a family favorite, served warm as dessert, plain or with a scoop of ice cream. My family also likes it cold as a coffee cake. But the lemon sauce topping makes this traditional dessert a little different, enhancing the flavor of the blueberries.
