This recipe is from The More Swamp Cooking cookbook. SheronBeth sent me this cookbook for my birthday. It is all Louisiana cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine melted butter, milk, eggs, 1 cup sugar and vanilla.
  2. In separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to liquid and stir. Do not overmix.
  3. In large skillet, combine water, 2 1/2 cups sugar and blackberries. Cook over medium heat till mixture thickens.
  4. Drop dumpling batter by the spoonful into blackberry mixture and cook dumplings till they rise. Test with fork. When fork comes out clean, remove dumplings and continue with remaining batter.
  5. Serve dumplings warm, topped with blackberry mixture. ** I do not know how many this makes so I guessed it anyone works it out let me know.

My grandmother always made these. I LOVE them. What a treat they are. Personally I like them better than the cobbler. Thanx for posting and bringing back memories.
