8 servings (serving size: about 1/3 cup berry mixture and 1 dumpling)

This old-fashioned dessert is similar to a cobbler, but it has fluffy dumplings on top and is so much faster to prepare. Using a skillet with straight sides allows enough room for the dumplings to rise without touching the lid.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, 1/8 teaspoon salt, nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium bowl. Combine milk and butter in a small bowl. Stir into flour mixture until moist; set batter aside.

Step 3

Place berries in an 11-inch straight-sided skillet. Gently stir in remaining 5 tablespoons sugar, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, lemon juice, and water. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 4

Drop 8 dollops of batter on top of berry mixture. Sprinkle dumplings and berries with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 8 minutes or until dumplings are cooked through and juices are bubbly. Serve warm.
