Apple Slump Recipe

History of Apple Slump:
Apple slump is a traditional American dessert that has its roots in New England. It is a type of fruit-based cobbler, similar to a crisp or crumble. The dish gets its name from the way the dough "slumps" or falls onto the stewed apples during the cooking process.

Fun Facts about Apple Slump:

1. The term "slump" originates from the cooking method, where the dough slumps onto the fruit, creating a rustic appearance.

2. Apple slump is often made with tart apples such as Granny Smith or McIntosh, as the slight tartness balances well with the sweetness of the dish.

3. This dessert is particularly popular during the fall season when apples are in abundance and at their peak.

4. While apple slump is traditionally made with stewed apples, variations can include other fruits like peaches, berries, or even a combination of different fruits.

5. The topping of the apple slump can vary from recipes that use a biscuit-like dough to those that have a more cake-like consistency.

And now, here's a delicious recipe for Apple Slump:

- 6-8 tart apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
- Water, as needed
- Sugar, to taste
- 1 pint (2 cups) flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups milk
- Cream or soft custard, for serving


1. Start by preparing the stewed apples. In a large pot, add the peeled, cored, and quartered apples. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pot. Sprinkle sugar over the apples to taste, depending on their natural sweetness. Cook the apples over medium heat until they become tender, stirring occasionally. Once tender, remove from heat and set aside.

2. In a separate bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together. Add a pinch of salt and mix well.

3. Gradually pour in the milk while stirring the flour mixture. Mix until a smooth batter is formed. The batter should be pourable but not too runny.

4. Lightly flour a clean surface or a pastry board. Place the batter onto the floured surface and roll it out to a thickness of half an inch. Ensure the size is sufficient to cover the stewed apples later.

5. Carefully lift the rolled dough and lay it over the stewed apples. Cover the pot with a lid and cook for about ten minutes without lifting the lid. This will allow the dough to steam and cook through.

6. After ten minutes, remove the lid and check if the dough is cooked through. It should be light and fluffy. If needed, cook for an additional few minutes until the dough is fully cooked.

7. Serve the hot apple slump with a drizzle of cream or a side of soft custard. If desired, sprinkle some sugar on top for added sweetness.
