These scrumptious dumplings are very easy to fix. I like to prepare them just before a meal and then set them aside to be served for dessert. They're good cold, too! This recipe is popular with our neighbors in states to the east.


  • 1 quart fresh or frozen black raspberries
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 cups prepared baking mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • Additional sugar, optional
  • Ground nutmeg, optional


  1. In a 6-qt. pan, combine raspberries, 1 cup sugar, water and cornstarch; stir to blend. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low.
  2. Meanwhile, combine baking mix, milk and remaining sugar in a bowl. Mix until a soft dough forms. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto berries. Cook over low heat, uncovered, 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10-15 minutes more, or until dumplings are cooked through.
  3. For glazed effect, sprinkle dumplings with additional sugar and a dash of nutmeg before serving.
