Stewed blueberries with dumplings

    40 min

    This dessert is similar to blueberry cobbler, only it isn't baked. Blueberries and sugar are simmered together until thick and bubbly. A sweetened dough is then spooned into the bubbling blueberry mix, creating wonderfully light and fluffy dumplings.

    Serves: 6 

    • 100g instant vanilla pudding mix, such as Angel Delight
    • 500ml cold milk
    • 650g fresh blueberries
    • 100g caster sugar or more to taste
    • 250g plain flour

    • 250ml milk

    1. Whisk the pudding and 500ml milk together in a bowl until thickened, about 2 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
    2. Mix blueberries and 100g sugar in a large saucepan and pour in enough water to just barely cover the berries. Bring the mixture to the boil over medium heat, reduce heat to low and simmer while you make the topping.
    3. To make dumpling topping, mix flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar and salt together in a bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in vegetable oil and 250ml milk. Stir until the mixture forms a soft dough.
    4. Bring the berry mixture back to the boil and drop the dumpling dough into the boiling blueberries by heaping spoonfuls. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until the dumpling dough is cooked through, about 15 minutes. A knife inserted into a dumpling will come out clean. To serve, scoop a dumpling into a serving bowl, spoon blueberry sauce over and top with chilled vanilla pudding.

    If you like dumplin's and blueberries you'll LOVE this! I added juice from 1/2 a lemon and after cooking let the biscuits stand for about 10 mins before serving so the juice could thicken. The left over was great in blueberry triffle the next day.  -  15 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Despite the yummy aroma as the Flummery cooking, my family was not sold. I am still giving it four stars because I thought it was tasty and I enjoyed making it.  -  08 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really didn't care for this recipe, to me it wasn't one of those deserts you would want to have seconds or even make again. Although it was fun making it and the smell was great it just wasn't all that tasty.  -  11 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
