I make these in an electric frypan. Try topping them off with vanilla ice cream, or even whipped cream while they are still hot. Awesome!

This was really GROSS!!!!It tasted terrible! and I LOVE blueberries and dumplings, just not together. It's really garpy and floury tasting.

I Love this recipe with Blackberries That's the way my mom made it when I was little. I couldn't remember how she did it. I was so happy to see this one on line. The first bite was like going back in time. I will try the Blueberries too. But, makes a delicious blackberry dessert. I altered the recipe a little my husband has heart disease so, instead of lard I used olive oil. Fantastic.

We went out early this morning to pick blueberries, and when we got home we both wanted something made with blueberries NOW. I whipped this up quickly, and in no time we had a delicious, satisfying blueberry fix, even without an ice cream topping. I can't wait to dive into the leftovers. Shortening worked fine instead of lard.
