2c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1c sugar
1/8 tsp salt

1c milk
2 beaten eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Fruit layer
fresh or frozen unsweetened fruit of choice-apples, peaches, berries, apricots, plums, etc.
1/4 c melted butter
3/4 c all purpose flour
3/4 c sugar
Blend flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and butter in a large bowl. Stir in milk, eggs, and vanilla.Spread in a well greased jelly roll pan (17x11x1"). Cover with fruit of choice. Combine topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit and bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.
Yields: 40 squares.

Hey, it doesn't have raisins in it either! I bet it would work with our local fruit too.

RE: RECIPE: Mennonite Fruit Dessert

Roselin, I can use this for sure for our family gatherings.
Would it work with fruit combinations also? Or do you recommend just one type of fruit be used?

RE: RECIPE: Mennonite Fruit Dessert

Marlen, go ahead and use whatever fruits you want. Since we have peach and apricot trees, that is what I usually use but any fruit or combination should work just fine.

RE: RECIPE: Mennonite Fruit Dessert

You have an apricot tree??? Lucky you!

RE: RECIPE: Mennonite Fruit Dessert

Apricot and peaches-but when we have a good crop, I never feel lucky!
