"I make these in an electric frypan. Try topping them off with vanilla ice cream, or even whipped cream while they are still hot. Awesome!" — Joanne Choquette

I Love this recipe with Blackberries That's the way my mom made it when I was little. I couldn't remember how she did it. I was so happy to see this one on line. The first bite was like going back in time. I will try the Blueberries too. But, makes a delicious blackberry dessert. I altered the recipe a little my husband has heart disease so, instead of lard I used olive oil. Fantastic.
This was really GROSS!!!!It tasted terrible! and I LOVE blueberries and dumplings, just not together. It's really garpy and floury tasting.
We went out early this morning to pick blueberries, and when we got home we both wanted something made with blueberries NOW. I whipped this up quickly, and in no time we had a delicious, satisfying blueberry fix, even without an ice cream topping. I can't wait to dive into the leftovers. Shortening worked fine instead of lard.
This is simple and tasty. To make the dumplings come out a little more tender and delicious, add a little less than 1T more lard or shortening, and zest some lemon rind into the dry ingredients before adding the milk. Then, only stir the milk in until the dry ingredients are moist- don't stir and stir. Thanks for the delicious recipe.
My kids and my husband loved this one. I served it with a cinnamon sauce and whipped cream. Definitely a keeper.
Very quick and easy to make. Really loved the blueberry sauce. So good with vanilla ice cream. The dumplings have potential but I found them too heavy and not very flavourful. Used butter instead of lard. A lighter dumpling with some vanilla & lemon zest added would make a huge difference.
While this was very easy and good, I think I would use a different dumpling dough next time--this one was a bit too dense and doughy for me. I used vegetable shortening instead of lard, for the record.
Oh, this is soooo good. It is now a family favorite. I made it while camping and it just tasted wonderful. I added 2 T sugar to the dumping mixture. This is definitely Comfort Food.
