This is a great variation on a classic cobbler because it comes together quickly and won't heat your kitchen up as much as the oven will, since it just uses one stove top burner. It's good to have a box of Hodgson Mill Insta-Bake Mix handy, so homemade pancakes, biscuits, and cobblers are possible at the drop of a hat.

Prep: 15 min
Total Time: 40 min
Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 recipe Insta-Bake Dumpling Dough, (recipe below)
  • 4 cups blackberries, (if frozen, defrost and drain)
  • 2 cups, firm baking apples, 2-3 apples (such as Granny Smith)
  • 2-3 Tbsp ginger, minced, fresh
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Ice cream, or vanilla yogurt, or whipped cream


  • In a large pot with a tight-fitting lid, stir together fruit, sugar, ginger, lemon juice, and salt. Turn heat to low. Drop Insta-Bake Dumpling Dough in 6-8 spoonfuls on top of fruit mixture. Don’t press dumplings into the fruit mixture; just let them sit on top. Heat pot until fruit mixture is bubbling slowly and gently. Put on the lid and simmer for 25 minutes without peeking.
  • After 25 minutes, remove lid. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar over the top of the dumplings and cook uncovered 5 minutes on low to let dumplings dry out slightly. Remove from heat. Serve hot, with ice cream, whipped cream, or yogurt.
  • Notes: Feel free to substitute other types of fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or peaches. Make sure there are about 6 cups total of any combination of fruits. Adjust sweetness by adding or decreasing sugar as needed. Recipe can also be prepared in a slow cooker; cook fruit and dumplings for 2 hours on high without taking off lid.
