Sift flour, 2 teaspoons sugar, baking powder, soda and salt together into a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the egg yolk, buttermilk and butter together. Quickly stir into flour mixture just to combine. Beat egg white to soft peaks and fold into batter. Set aside.

Drop the dumpling batter by spoonfuls into simmering fruit. Cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until dumplings are firm. Serve warm with a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprig of mint.
