Unlike a cobbler, which is a deep dish fruit topped with a biscuit and baked, "grunts" are stewed or steamed.
FOR THE TOPPING
1 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 1 egg, beaten 1/2 cup light cream
Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together into a mixing bowl. Add the egg and cream alternately, stirring gently to form a smooth dough. Do not overmix, as over mixing will toughen the dough. Set aside.
FOR THE FRUIT
4 cups apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick, about 3 large 2 cups whole cranberries, fresh or frozen 2/3 cup brown sugar 2/3 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup water 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Put the apples, cranberries, sugars, water and cinnamon in a large sauté pan or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring as it cooks.
Drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto the fruit mixture, spacing the dumplings about 1-inch apart. You should have enough dough to make 6 to 8 dumplings. Cover and continue to simmer undisturbed for 15 minutes. The dumplings will puff up when done, and a toothpick inserted into one will come out clean.
To serve, place the dumplings in individual bowl and spoon the fruit around them. Serve with cream or ice cream.
julieann: A long while back you posted a recipe for Easy Sauce by Reg and Jack Absalom, I just wanted to say thank you so much, and to mention that it is pretty good for making tomato relish. I am an Aussie living in the USA. No easy access to Ezy Sauce.JulieAnn
