Apple Slump

Apple Slump

From: Tarah's Food Reviews

2 Tbs. unsalted butter, plus 3 Tbs. chopped and chilled
2 1/4 lbs. gala apples, peeled and sliced into 8ths
1/2 cup + 2 Tbs. sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup + 1 Tbs. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 cup whole milk

In a small dutch oven (I don't have a dutch oven, so I just used a large skillet), melt the 2 Tbs. butter over medium heat. Add the apples, then stir in 1/2 cup of sugar, the lemon juice and cinnamon. Cover and simmer until the apples are nearly tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in 1 Tbs. flour and remove from the heat.

In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup flour, 2 Tbs. sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the 3 Tbs. chilled butter, working it in with your fingertips until crumbly. Add the milk and stir to combine.

Return the dutch oven to medium-low heat and spoon the batter onto the hot fruit to almost cover the surface. Cover and simmer until the batter is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
