2 bags (16 ounces each) frozen dark sweet cherries
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup whole milk
ice cream, for serving (optional)

Be careful not to overmix the batter for the dumplings; it should be wet and lumpy.

Combine cherries and 1/3 cup sugar in a large skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high; simmer rapidly until syrupy, 8 to 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining tablespoon sugar; set aside.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually stir in milk, mixing just until a wet dough forms.

Reduce heat to medium-low.

Spoon tablespoons of dough (you should have about 18) over simmering fruit; sprinkle all with cinnamon-sugar.

Cover skillet; simmer very gently until dumplings are set and dry to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes.

Serve warm, with ice cream if desired.
