A slump is similar to a cobbler or a grunt. They are a dessert made with different kinds of fruit covered with dough and baked in the oven. The only difference is that this slump is served inverted on a serving platter similar to a pandowdy.

This fresh peach slump is the perfect dessert to serve on a cool evening.


  • 8 cups peaches (about 8 medium peaches; peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons ​light brown sugar​
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cup ​flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup ​buttermilk
  • 1 egg

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Lightly butter a 1 1/2-quart baking dish.

  2. Combine the peaches, brown sugar, almond extract, and nutmeg. Spread in the bottom of dish.

  3. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and sugar with wire whisk.

  4. Cut the butter into the flour mixture in a food processor, with a pastry blender or two forks until it forms coarse crumbs.

  5. In a small bowl, combine the milk, buttermilk and egg. Add to flour mixture. Do not knead; the dough will be sticky, stiff, and lumpy.

  6. Drop by the spoonful over the peaches.

  7. Bake the peach slump for 25 minutes or until the top is golden and the juices are bubbling.

  8. Cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes.

  9. Loosen the biscuit from the sides of the pan and then invert it onto a serving platter.

  10. This peach slump is best served warm topped with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.
