Blackberry Dumplings Recipe


  • 1 qt Fresh or frozen (loose-pack) blackberries
  • 1 c Plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 ts Lemon extract
  • 1 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/4 ts Ground nutmeg
  • 2/3 c Milk
  • Cream or whipped cream, optional


  • In a Dutch oven, combine the blackberries, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and lemon extract.
  • Bring to a boil
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg and remaining sugar and salt.
  • Add milk
  • Stir just until mixed. (Dough will be very thick.)
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls into six mounds onto hot blackberry mixture
  • Cover tightly and simmer for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean.
  • Spoon into serving dishes.

If cooking in an oven I used 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, but the recipe really is designed for a campfire.
