A Mixed Berry Slump is easy to mix up and perfect for breakfast or dessert. You can decide to serve it with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or ice cream. I prefer to prepare it as a vegan recipe, substituting the non-dairy milk and coconut oil for the milk and butter.
I’m calling this a slump but it’s not, even thought it’s a bit like a slump. It’s a cross between a slump and a cobbler. Slump has the biscuits dropped on top and the cobbler is a lighter and sweeter cake. The cake in this recipe is not cake nor biscuit… I’m slumped on a name.
