Mom's Fruit Tart

I love this recipe. It is sooooo easy. And it takes no time to prepare. It also has a lot of possibilities. You can make this with so many different kinds of fruit. Growing up, it was mostly plum; recently I have been branching out into all manners of fruit for this. I think the rule is it just needs fruit skin.

Here's what I needed:
  • fruit with skin
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
 Here's what I did: (make sure you do this in this order, otherwise it won't work)
  1. Pick your favorite fruit (with skin - apple, peach, pear, plum, strawberries, etc) and slice them into quarters or thirds. Line your baking pan with the fruit skin side down. 
  2. In one bowl mix: brown sugar, flour & cinnamon
  3. Sprinkle this over the fruit
  4. In another bowl mix: white sugar, flour, baking powder, & egg 
  5. Sprinkle this over the fruit
  6. Pour melted butter over the top (we use the PAM butter spray instead now - its easier)
  7. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. 
This is a fruit crumble recipe. In the end, you have fruit with baked crumbles on top. It is delicious warm with a little homemade whipped cream on top.
