Mixed Berry Slump

I do not claim to be a baker by any means. Can I bake? Yes. Do I enjoy baking? Eh, not overly. But sometimes, just sometimes one needs to warm up the oven, mix up something yummy and fill the air with delicious smells. Tonight was one of those nights. Once a year or so I dig out my berry slump recipe and enjoy a warm bowl! Hope you enjoy it too!

Mixed Berry Slump

4 cups of fresh (or thawed frozen) berries of your choice (I went with blackberries, blueberries, raspberries)

1/2-3/4 cups of sugar (depending on sweetness of fruit)

1 cup of flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup milk (I used 1/2 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of half and half)

1/4 sugar

2 Tbsp melted butter

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Begin by adding your berries into an ungreased deep-dish glass or ceramic pie pan or a 5-6 cup gratin dish. Sprinkle evenly over berries 1/2-3/4 cups of sugar, depending on berry tartness.

Next, sift together your dry ingredients into a small mixing bowl. Add in your milk and melted butter. Whisk until smooth.

Pour mixture over berries. Don’t worry if berries aren’t completely covered.

Bake slump until golden brown, approx 45 minutes. Let cool for about 20 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or half and half.
