I found this old-fashioned recipe in Good Old Days magazine awhile back and thought it sounded like great comfort food. A quick dessert when you're short on time.

How to Make BLACKBERRY SLUMP

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large saucepan with a lid, combine blackberries, water, lemon zest, lemon juice and sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, blend flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Using your hands or a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk and mix until ingredients are just moistened. Do not overmix.
  3. Drop 6 equal spoonfuls of dough into simmering berry sauce. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes or until dumplings are done. DO NOT lift the lid.
