I am going to my brothers today to celebrate his birthday and offered to bring dessert. The menu for dinner is fried chicken, mashed potatoes, rolls, and all that jazz. I don't really care for fried chicken, and can pass on the other stuff as well, but don't want to make a scene. I think I'll take a veggie platter and eat small bites of the "other" food.
I will be eating this though!
Here's the recipe! Nothing about this taste "light", and it is super easy to make! Promise!
4 C fresh blueberries
1 tsp lemon juice
1 C flour
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
Dash of salt
1 T veg oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 lg egg whites, lightly beaten
3 T sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine blueberries and lemon juice in a 9 inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. (I used a larger dish so I could spread it out a bit and just have smaller portions. The recipe as is, is a very nice large portion.) Combine flour and the next 4 ingredients in a lg. bowl. Make a well in the center. In a separate bowl, slight beat egg whites, then add oil and vanilla and whisk. Add to flour mixture.
Stir until completely mixed.
Form 8 dumplings and place on top of blueberries. (I made 16 small dumplings instead of 8 large ones. This allows me to cut the points down if I eat 1/2 of an original serving).
Combine 3 T of sugar with 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon and sprinkle over the top. (I think this is what does it for me!)
Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
I JUST took this out of the oven and I have no idea how I am going to wait ALL day to eat it! The house smells so good!
The original recipe is for 8 servings, and 5 PPV.
I will cut it in half, but call it 3 PPV!
