  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 7x11 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. Cut in butter. Pour in milk and stir to form a dough. Turn out onto a well-floured surface and roll out. Cut into 6 - 6 inch squares.
  3. Place a whole apple in the center of each square. Fill the core with blueberries. Drizzle with maple syrup. Pull up corners of dough and pinch edges together to seal. Place dumplings in prepared pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Combine remaining maple syrup with enough water to pour over dumplings to a 1 inch depth in dish. Submerge remaining blueberries and apple peelings with dried orange peel in liquid.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes, basting as necessary, until crisp and browned. Serve warm with sauce.

The crust is the best part. I would like it better with 1T of butter and 1tsp of sugar inside. The mixture of fruits and maple syrup is delicious! MsJNewell

Great recipe! I served this to guests and it was heavenly! I forgot to add the cinnamon and nutmeg and it still tasted great! Definitely should be served with ice cream. THANKS!!!

It took me about 2 hours total to put this together, partly because I had to core the apples by hand. I used strawberries because that's what I had on hand. I didn't think that they tasted very much of anything and the dough was soggy where the juices were. Next time I'll use a store bought dough and try it with blueberries. Thanks, I'm sure we'll use this recipe again.

Yummy! This was excellent. The dough takes awhile to prepare, when rolling it and cutting up slices so make sure you have plenty of time. But the overall taste was wonderful. I didn't have the orange peel, but the sauce was still really good. Be sure to baste the dumplings every so often. Also, the vanilla ice cream with it is definitely a must. I am eager to try filling the apples with a different fruit in place of blueberries for fun next time. It would taste great with raspberries or any berry really.

Great recipe. Takes a little work, but worth it. My family didn't care for the orange peel, though. I would leave that out next time. This recipe has a lot of potential to be used with pears or whatever you like. I did brush 1/4 c. butter on the tops prior to baking.
