Strawberry Rhubarb Slump

The name may be unfamiliar, but a slump is in the family of cooked or stewed fruit with raised dough on top; a cousin to the cobbler, a slump is topped with dumplings instead of biscuits. The effect is like pie, but easier to make.

1 pint strawberries, green tops removed, cut into large pieces
2 cups cut-up rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
lightly sweetened whipped cream

In a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, combine the strawberries, rhubarb, sugar and 1/2 cup water. Cook over medium heat at a simmer for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the milk and quickly combine. Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the surface of the slightly simmering fruit. Cook for 10 minutes uncovered, then place a lid on and cook another 10 minutes.

Serve in shallow bowls, topped with whipped cream.
