All over the world, one of the simplest ways to turn a pile of ripe fruit into a warm comfortable dessert is to slowly bake them with aromatic spices under an easy-to-make crumbly crust
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white or brown sugar
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 stick Butter
Toss the fruit with the cinnamon, then spread it evenly into a 9- x 5-inch baking pan 2 inches deep.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and nutmeg. Drizzle in the melted butter and stir until well blended with the dry ingredients.
Scatter this topping evenly over the top of the fruit. Bake until fruit juices are bubbling around the edges, the fruit is tender and the top is golden brown, about 1 hour.
