ABC Slump

The "ABC" in this recipe's name comes from the apple, blueberries and cranberries it uses. The other part refers to the way the dumplings "slump" during cooking - presumably the sound made by the fruit as it bubbles on the stove. I've take my slump to work, picnics and church carry-ins. No matter where, the result is the same...all that I ever bring home is the empty dish. -Becky Burch, Marceline, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped peeled tart apple
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • DUMPLINGS:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Half-and-half cream

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the fruit, water and sugar; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir just until moistened. Drop into six mounds onto simmering fruit. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Serve warm with cream.
