The key to avoiding a soggy mess (from water collecting under lid) is b4 you put the lid on to cook first lay a kitchen towel across top of pan then put lid on and fold edges of towel up over lid can secure with clips to avoid towel catching fire. I used part whole wheat flour and yogurt instead of cream. Read More

It's not a bad recipe but I say drop the cream and use low fat vanilla yogurt. On our rating system we gave it a 7/10. I'd say less sugar in the blueberry mix and more sugar in the dumplings. Read More

Used fresh blueberries with 1/3 c. water so the sugar was just right except I used Morena cane sugar rather than the white sugar. It was great! Oh and I removed the lid a few times to remove the water that collected under it so the dumplings wouldn't get soggy. Read More

There should be some guidelines as to the cooking time for the dumplings. Also my whole family's teeth are stained blue. I know this can happen with any bluberry recipe but I'm wondering if the cast iron pan boosted the effect. Read More
