What you will need: 2 cups of berries (I like to use a mixture of blackberries and blueberries), 2 cups of water, 1 cup of flour, 1 and 1/3 cups of sugar, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 stick of butter, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, milk and salt as needed, ice cream.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon with one tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt. Cut the butter into these ingredients. Add milk little by little and stir until the dough is firm and doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl. Set this aside. Pour and stir the water, berries, and the sugar into a large pot. Heat this mixture until boiling. Use a tablespoon (a teaspoon if you want smaller dumplings) and drop the dough pieces into the boiling pot one by one. Put a lid on the pot, reduce the heat, and let it cook covered for 20 minutes.
Unless you want a quick ice cream soup, give your dumplings some time to cool down before pouring them over your ice cream. Once you have it prepared though, dig in! It is oh-so yummy!
