Never Miss a Delicious Recipe:

Chocolate-Strawberry Slump

I am tired yet happy, for two main reasons.  First, I had a great time this past Friday teaching a successful Brazilian cooking class at Central Market Cooking School in San Antonio, Texas as part of the Passaporte Brasil Festival…. This is my third class there!!!   The menu for the evening included Tapioca Couscous with Garlic Shrimp and Mango Coulis (appetizer), Coconut Risotto (side dish), Tilapia with Passion Fruit Sauce and Toasted Sesame Seeds (main dish), and a Vanilla Bean Bread Pudding with Guava-Port Sauce (dessert).  Although all of the dishes were plated by the sous chefs,  I developed all the recipes and taught the class.  It was so thrilling to see many familiar faces (returning students), and several new ones as well…  And of course it is such an honor to have a chance to share my country, culture, and the one-of-a-kind food from the place that I call home in Brazil: the Northeastern region — more specifically Pernambuco state.  I loved seeing the curiosity in their eyes, the smiles on their faces, and the clean plates after every single course of our meal. I am not forgetting our recipe for today: Chocolate-strawberry slump! Here it comes…

My Cooking Class at Central Market Cooking School for Passaporte Brasil

Second, this month I started participating in a very nice Chocolate Party held once a month by Roxana’s Home Baking.  Our recipe for today, Chocolate-Strawberry Slump, is a kissing cousin of fruit cobbler.  It was crafted specifically to fit the sweet menu of this wonderful party where we celebrate the infamous and decadent chocolate.  Our secret ingredient for the month? Strawberries!!!!  Yummm…  Just thinking about it sets my heart racing.  🙂

Chocolate-Strawberry Slump by From Brazil To You.

1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg, at room temperature
8 ounces (227 g) fresh or frozen and thawed strawberries, chopped
Vanilla ice cream, for serving


1. To make crumb topping: In a food processor, combine 2 tablespoons of flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of chilled cubed butter and process until mixture acquires a texture of coarse bread crumbs, about 10 seconds. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.


2. Heat oven to 350°F (about 180°C).  Grease four ( 6 oz.) ramekins with butter and dust with flour; reserve.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining 1 cup flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt; reserve.

4. In a large measuring cup, whisk together 4 tablespoons of melted butter and wine; set aside.

5. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup-plus-2 tablespoons of sugar, vanilla, and the egg until pale and thick (about 2 minutes); then, whisk in wine/butter mixture to egg until smooth. Whisk in flour mixture until just combined.

Chocolate batter

6. Split batter between the four ramekins and top each with the chopped strawberries.

    Denise! I am so glad your class went so well! If I was in Houston, I would’ve driven to SA to attend 🙂 your food from the class looks amazing! I bet everyone had a great time with such a fabulous teacher who wouldn’t?
    I’ve heard of slump but never ate it or made it, but I love all the close relatives of slump! Love your version with all the drizzly strawberry juices! Simply gorgeous!

  22. Laura May 8, 2013 at 10:32 pm #

    How unique! I love slumps, especially made with berries. The chocolate batter on the bottom is ingenious.

  23. Nami | Just One Cookbook May 9, 2013 at 2:04 am #

    I just learned my first “Slump”! How delicious…. I saw the pictures on Pinterest earlier and really looked wonderful. The shot with spoon seems like you are suggesting us to pick it up and eat? Very tempting shot! I really wish I can do that in reality!

    • Denise Browning May 9, 2013 at 7:20 am #

      Thanks, Nami! That was my intention…I wish everyone could dig in that slump. It’s a messy and very scrumptious dessert.

  24. Dina May 9, 2013 at 9:20 am #

    wow, that looks amazing!!

    This looks delicious, I could eat some of this right now.

  30. Brianna June 18, 2015 at 8:34 am #

    This looks so delicious! Any idea if I can substitute something else for the white wine?

    • Denise Browning June 18, 2015 at 2:03 pm #

      Hi, Brianna!
      Thanks for stopping by. You can use sprite or seven up instead of dry wine. I hope you enjoy this dessert!
      Have a great day,

  31. Atiya July 19, 2016 at 12:32 pm #


    This looks amazing. I don’t drink alcohol so I was wondering what I could substitute for the alcohol.


    • Denise Browning July 19, 2016 at 6:40 pm #

      Hello, Atiya! Thank you for stopping by. You can use white grape juice mixed with a few drops of either lemon juice or white vinegar to replace the dry white wine. I hope you have the chance to try this recipe and enjoy. Have a wonderful week!

  32. Meera. July 21, 2016 at 3:19 pm #

    I made this desert for a potluck dinner gathering. I double the quantity to serve for 20 people and baked it in one container. My opinion is that I should have kept the chocolate part to one portion and should have doubled the fruit mixer portion to be rich with fruit mixer. Also I added blueberries and black berries along with strawberries.

    • Denise Browning July 21, 2016 at 3:22 pm #

      Thank you for stopping by, Meera! I hope you have the chance to make it again adapting to your preferences. Have a wonderful summer!
