      This is a wonderful recipe! I made it using rhubarb butter and baking it in small ramekins for individual servings. It was so tasty! Wow, I absolutely loved the crumbly topping with the moist interior. The fruit butter kinda melted into the bottom and topping which made it very special-neither too wet nor too dry. Perfect! I made half the recipe and left out the sugar. It was still sweet and that way you could really taste the fruit. YUM! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful keeper of a recipe, Ajo!
