Super-easy way to make a baked fruit dessert. It makes a nice autumn treat. This isn't a fruit crisp, nor a buckle, nor a cobbler nor a betty, hence the name. It comes closer to the German Kaiserschmarrn. You can use peaches, pears, nectarines, whole blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or a combination of fruits (or frozen berries), plus raisins if you like them.

  • Pour batter into baking pan over melted butter. Place sliced plums over batter into baking pan. Sprinkle top with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until batter browns, fruit bubbles, and a knife inserted into the batter comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

This reminded me of a loaded fruit coffee cake of sorts because the batter yielded a more cake-like texture. We liked this a lot especially topped with vanilla ice cream for dessert. I added cake spice in lieu of the cinnamon which gave the blueberries a warm spicy flavor. Very easy and very good. Read More

The flavor of the berrries I used was not complemented by the cinnamon. I also doubled the recipe and it didn't turn out well. Read More

Hi, it's Bonny here, the original creator of the recipe. I just wanted to mention, in case you double it, the baking time will increase (and this varies depending on whether the fruit is frozen or not) but you do not need to double the butter if using a larger pan. Another note is, cinnamon may not work with every fruit conceivable for this recipe; I have used vanilla before with more delicate flavors such as with raspberries. You might even consider adding some lemon or orange zest instead of the cinnamon. Read More
