Mimi Moto Berry Dumplings

This simple dessert makes berries the main focus. Whether fresh or frozen, picked from our garden or bought at the local farm stand, any berries can be mixed and matched in this recipe. The amount of sugar in the berries is also up to you. Some folks like it all sweet, while others may enjoy a tart dessert sweetened with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The nice thing about this dish is that you can taste it along the way if desired. Cooking any kind of breading can be tricky on a camp stove but these dumplings are a cinch. Pre-made biscuits in a tube can be substituted for the homemade version (just cut them into fourths before dropping into the berry mixture.)

Mimi Moto Berry Dumplings


8 cups berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and/or strawberries)

1/2 - 1 cup white sugar

2 tablespoons flour

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Dash of salt


2 cups flour

3 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup melted butter

3/4 cup milk

Cinnamon Sugar for sprinkling


This recipe requires a heavy skillet with a lid. Either cast iron, enameled cast iron or hard anodized aluminum. In a small bowl mix sugar, flour and a dash of salt. Mix berries with lemon juice and flour mixture gently, until well combined.

For the dumplings, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until thoroughly combined. Add melted butter and stir with a fork or pastry cutter until mixture has a sandy texture. Add milk and stir just to combine, do not over mix.

For the Cinnamon Sugar, mix 1 tablespoon of sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Prepare Mimi Moto by filling the large or small burner/canister with fuel of choice.

Smokehouse Pellets are recommended but Smokehouse Wood Chunks will also work. Light chunks from the top and turn Mimi Moto to 4 to get fuel burning quickly.

Although the Mimi Moto can be cooked directly over, placing a heat diffusing trivet over the flame helps control the temperature and keeps the heat even. 

Heat berry mixture on Mimi Moto, stirring occasionally.

Once berry mixture begins to bubble, lower Mimi Moto heat to 1, simmering and additional 5 minutes. Taste for sweetness and add additional sugar at this time if desired. Cook mixture and additional minute.

Make sure mixture is still gently bubbling before adding the dumplings. If needed, increase Mimi Moto heat to 2. Drop dumplings one teaspoon at a time to berry mixture. Spread dumplings out leaving a bit of space between each one.
