Friends, this easy recipe–Blueberry Dumplings–was inspired by The Pioneer Woman’s Peach Dumplings years ago. They are such a simple dessert, and a real crowd pleaser. Top with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream! I’m a dumpling lover, are you?

Blueberry Dumplings are an old-fashioned, comfort dessert that’s been around for a long time! This recipe is a great summer alternative to blueberry cobbler (it’s been on my blog since 2016!)–quick and easy! This recipe features a deliciously sweet syrup loaded with blueberries.

Blueberry Dumpling recipe with ice cream

The blueberries are delicious, and the flakiness of the dough is more like a croissant. But because it’s very moist, it becomes a dumpling.

how to make Blueberry Dumplings

These Blueberry dumplings are made with Oregon Specialty Fruit Blueberries. And what I love about this recipe (thank you, Ree, for the inspiration from your Peach Dumplings), is that you can make this any time of the year, because the blueberries are canned. Easy!

Tips and substitutions:

  • Yes, you can use fresh blueberries. You can also use canned peaches or other fruit. Just make sure and drain well.
  • Make sure and pour the soda around the outside of the pan (not over the rolls), to prevent sogginess.
  • Always use butter (optional to use nonstick spray) to keep your dumplings from sticking to the pan.
  • Want to add another spice? We love this recipe with both cinnamon + cardamom. Delish!

serving of sweet dumplings

Reheat the dumplings: Microwave (cover first) for about one minute. For a better texture (more crispy), bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

We love to serve this dessert any time of year or bring them to potlucks! Think breakfast, brunch, dessert – served warm with ice cream or whipped cream!

Enjoy!
