Fruit Kuchen (Merbitke?)

I learned this from my grandmother. I love it with peaches, but it's great with plums and apples.

Method

Mix pastry. It will be wet like a cake batter.

Spread on the bottom of a 9×12 inch pan. Should be about a little more than 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick.

Slice your fruit into thin wedges and arrange is single, slightly overlapping layer.

Then mix the topping and pour even over the fruit.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the topping is bubbling all over and the pasty light brown.
