This has to be the easiest dessert to throw together.
Use whatever fruit you have on hand. Berries, apples, peaches, plums. They all work well.
Last night I used whatever was ripe on the counter.
2 nectarines and 8 luscious figs. I sliced them up with the skins left on.
Lay the cut up fruit in a small oval casserole or baking dish.
For the topping: (measurements are approximate)
3 tbsp light brown sugar
3 tbsp white sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup oats
handful of sliced almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp melted butter
Pour the melted butter over the dry ingredients and mash with 2 forks until you get a nice crumbly topping.
Pour over the fruit in the casserole and pat down. Bake for 35 minutes at 350F until bubbling.
Serve with ice cream or on its own! The perfect summer dessert!
