The flavor in this dish is wonderful. The cooking time for the dumplings ended up being about 20 minutes. I also doubled the fruit ingredients but neglected to double the dumplings...duh, and the result was waaayy too much juice which never thickened. I assume if I had also doubled the dumplings the extra flour would have soaked up the excess juice.

I loved my Mom's blueberry dumplings so I thought this sounded good. It was fabulous. So many wonderful flavors together. I couldn't resist adding cinnamon to the fruit as well. The second time I added more fruit and a little less water. The dumplings then cooked on top of the fruit and were lofty and light. Love this recipe; quick, easy and delightful!
