Blackberry Grunt

A Grunt is a stewed or baked fruit dish. The biscuit dough is rolled and put on top of the fruit. The name of Grunt may have come from the noise people made while eating it. Grunts are also known as Slumps.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly flour a deep, 9-inch baking pan/casserole.
  2. 2Combine blackberries with sugar, spices, molasses and lemon juice. Transfer to baking dish. Prepare the biscuit topping: Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Cut the butter and oil with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir together egg and 1 tablespoon of the milk, if necessary, to form a soft dough. Roll the dough out lightly on a floured surface to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut as many circles possible with biscuit cutter. Cover berries with dough. Combine rest of milk and egg yolk. Brush over dough. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. 3Serve with some decadent Royal Crown Vanilla Ice Cream or whipped cream.
