- 4-1/2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon salt

- 1/2 cup reduced-sugar orange marmalade
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup golden raisins
- 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- Low-fat frozen yogurt, optional
- In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg substitute and 1/4 cup nectar; stir into the flour mixture just until moistened.
- Coarsely chop mango slices; combine with marmalade, lemon juice and remaining nectar.
- Transfer to an 8-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet; stir in raisins. Bring to a boil. Drop flour mixture in eight mounds onto the simmering mango mixture. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Sprinkle with ginger and almonds; if desired, serve with frozen yogurt.
