Blueberry Slump Recipe

How To Make Blueberry Slump

A classic new England dessert, blueberry slump is a no-bake treat with lemon, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar, some dumpling batter, and a topping of ice cream.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 35 minutes
Total: 45 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

For Dumplings:

  • 1cupall purpose flour
  • tspbaking powder
  • ½tspsalt
  • 2tbspsugar
  • 2tbspbutter
  • cupmilk

For Blueberries:

  • 4cupsblueberries,(fresh or frozen)
  • ½cupsugar
  • 1tspground cinnamon
  • ¼tspground nutmeg
  • tsplemon juice
  • 1tsplemon zest
  • cupwater
  • vanilla ice cream,or whipping cream, for serving

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut the butter into small cubes and use your clean hands to work the pieces of butter into the flour until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Make a well in the center and add the milk. Mix together with a fork or wooden spoon just until the dough comes together. Form it into a ball. It should be rather shaggy. Do not knead or over work it or the dumplings will be tough.

  2. Place the blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, lemon zest, and water into a medium (2-quart) saucepan. Stir so that the berries are well coated with everything. Heat on high heat until the berries start to boil.

  3. When the blueberry mixture is boiling, pull off clumps of dumpling dough from the ball of dough and place on top of the berries. There should be enough dough for 6 dumplings, so portion accordingly.

  4. Cover the pan, and lower the heat to maintain a low simmer. Cook for 25 minutes. Do not uncover to peek at the dumplings while cooking! The dumplings need the steady steam and pressure from being covered to cook properly so they are light and fluffy.

  5. Portion into individual serving bowls and top with vanilla ice cream or whipping cream.
