This was very delicious, but I agree with Spicyvioletcajun and niahgirl. They forgot to list the water that is needed to cook with the blackberries. Also, once the dumplings were done, the blackberry mixture was pretty runny, so I removed the dumplings to serving bowls and then mixed a little cornstarch and water together and added it slowly to the simmering blackberry mixture while stirring, to thicken it up a bit. Then I topped the dumplings with the blackberry mixture. Wonderful summer dessert. Would be extra delicious with vanilla ice cream.

You need to add the same amount of water as sugar to your dutchoven/pot. It appears that ingredient was overlooked. Other then that this recipe was delicious.

Something missing in this recipe, water to boil berries in, am I correct?

I didn't have any problems with this recipe, but none of us liked it very much.

Add 1 1/2 cups of water to cook the berries and steam the dumplings.

I don't know if the recipe on here is wrong but there is nothing to boil in the first ingredients. All the sugar does is coat the blackberries and the dumplings didn't turn out either.
