Stove Top Blueberry Slump

Stove Top Blueberry Slump created by Boomette

If you love warm, sweet blueberries with fluffy dumplings on top, this is the recipe for you! This is "supposed" to serve 6, but that's only if you have very-restrained eaters. Sometimes this serves only 2 in my house!

directions

  • In a large heavy saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar, water, lemon peel and juice, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add milk quickly, mixing until dry ingredients are just moistened. Drop dough by spoonfuls into simmering berries (makes six dumplings). Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Do not lift lid.
  • Spoon dumplings into individual serving bowls and spoon some sauce over each. Serve warm with cream or whipped cream, if desired.

    My grandmother made this in the 1940's. In New England we call it blueberry slump. Maybe we can call it blueberries with dumplings to sound more appetizing nowadays. Either way, it's delicious.

    In Canada this is known as blueberry grunt. It can also be made with strawberries, raspberries or even rhubarb. Good with vanilla ice cream.

    Made this with cherries and doubled the amount of dumplings. Was tasty except that the dumplings were a bit tough.

    Made exactly as listed, and will make again. Would work with many different fruits.
