Pear and Cherry Slump

2019-05-14T16:11:34+00:00

Old-time classic desserts are making a comeback thanks to their simplicity and comfort-food factor. Crumbles, buckles, grunts and slumps are all variations of fruit combined with sugar and a crumble or dumpling topping.  Slumps are particularly fun to make since they require few ingredients and are cooked right on the stove-top. This vintage dessert gets its name from the batter dumplings that “slump” into a layer of simmering fruit.  Our pear and cherry slump combines the contrasting flavors of these two crowd-pleasing fruits. The cherries also add some vivid color! Recipe Development and Photography: Williams-Raines YIELD: 6-8 INGREDIENTS Fruit filling  4 cups diced and [...]

Bosc Pear Dutch Baby

2019-03-20T19:04:30+00:00

Although it’s also known as “German Pancake”, the “Dutch Baby” is an American invention based on a German pastry. The name “Dutch Baby” was coined by Manca’s Café in Seattle in the early 1900s.  Dutch Babies are similar to Yorkshire puddings or popovers and can be savory or sweet. Unlike pancakes, they are always baked in the oven and contain no chemical leavening such as baking powder. This fun and delicious treat is typically eaten for breakfast or brunch in America. Our Bosc Pear Dutch Baby is a wonderful dish to serve at a weekend family breakfast. The sweetness of the pear works particularly well with the [...]
