Post Raspberry Slump

Raspberry Slump

Serves 6.
Slumps are similar to cobblers, but they're topped with soft dumplings that cook into the hot fruit.
2 pints fresh raspberries (or blackberries)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup light or heavy cream
COMBINE raspberries, 1/2 cup sugar, water, lemon juice and cinnamon in a 9-inch, heavy skillet with a domed lid (or use an upside-down pot as a lid).

COMBINE flour, remaining sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Add cream. Stir just until mixture forms a soft dough.

COVER skillet and heat berry mixture to boiling over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Drop tablespoons of dough over the top of the fruit. Cover and simmer until dumplings are set and tops are dry, about 15 minutes. Serve hot or warm.

Can I make it with blackberries instead? Paulie likes those much better.

I really like the sound of this Raine. The ingredients are simple and readily on hand/available, plus it's not complicated. We have both raspberry and blackberry bushes and, although not enough fruit from them this year (only put them in last year) to prepare this dessert, I printed your recipe out and will have it on file for next Summer. Thanks!
