Great recipe! I chose this recipe primarily because I wanted a cobbler, but didn't want to turn on the oven. This was delicious plus I didn't have to heat the house! I scaled it in half and served warm with vanilla ice cream. Might add more blueberries next time as it seemed to be more dumpling than fruit. Also added a touch of lemon juice (don't really know why, just seemed like a good idea). The dumplings were delicious and the berries had the perfect amount of sweetness. DH really enjoyed these as well! Thanks for posting!

I used cherries and nectarines because they needed to be used, but kept the method. I used a baking mix I keep in the freezer (whole wheat flour, oats, flax, etc.) and mixed soy milk for the dumplings. What an outstanding way to prepare a tasty and healthy dessert. Thanks for posting.
