This old-fashioned dessert is made by simmering fruit with cinnamon dumplings that soak up the sweet syrup as they cook.

Cook's Notes

Be careful not to overmix the batter for the dumplings; it should be wet and lumpy.

    Amazing. However, next time I'll add another cup of cherries; I used fresh and found there to not be enough to my liking.

    I've made this many times, and have found that it works with a variety of berries. Instead of using frozen cherries, I've tried it with fresh blackberries and raspberries. It turns out great every time!
