Roasted Fruit with Streusel Topping


*Serves 6-8

4-5 ripe nectarines

4-5 ripe red or purple plums

Sugar, for sprinkling

4 tablespoons butter, melted

2 cups lightly sweetened cold cereal, like Honey Bunches of Oats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly grease a 9X13-inch pan. Cut each piece of fruit in half and remove the seed/pit. Place the fruit flesh-side up in the baking pan. Nestle all the fruit together tightly to fit in the pan. Lightly sprinkle the fruit with about 1-2 teaspoons sugar.

In a small bowl, combine the cereal and melted butter. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the fruit. Bake the fruit for 30 minutes until the fruit is tender and hot. (To test, pierce one of the pieces of fruit with a fork. If the fork slides into the flesh easily, the fruit is done baking.) Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
