These easy dumplings are lightly sweetened, and they make an easy everyday dessert with fresh or frozen peaches and a simple sugar syrup. I added chopped pecans to the dumplings pictured.

The dumplings are spooned onto boiling peaches in syrup. This dessert is similar to a peach cobbler, but the dessert is simmered on the stovetop. These peach dumplings super easy to make, and the dessert is a good replacement for a peach shortcake or cobbler.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 2 to 3 cups fresh sliced peaches (or frozen thawed)
  • 1 cup flour (all-purpose, 4 1/2 ounces)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk (or cream, more or less)
  • Optional: cinnamon sugar

How to Make It

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 cup sugar, butter, and hot water. Add the sliced peaches and bring to a boil.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 tablespoon of sugar, if using; stir in milk or cream to form a stiff batter.
  3. Drop large spoonfuls of batter onto the boiling fruit.
  4. Cover the pan and cook for about 20 minutes.
  5. Spoon out dumplings and fruit into a bowl.
  1. If desired, sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar and serve with cream or ice cream.

Tips and Variations

  • Add about 1/2 cup of finely chopped pecans to the flour mixture for the dumplings.
  • Replace the peaches with fresh apricots or nectarines.
