I'm not going to preface this recipe by telling you a story of the time I frolicked through an orchard with my kids and husband. Nor will I say anything about how the smell of fruit warmed by the sun on a late summer afternoon turns me on. You know what turns me on? When my husband comes home from work, rolls up his sleeves, and starts helping with whatever needs to be done around the house.
Do I feel guilty that he cooks even though we both have full time jobs, and he commutes while I don't? Not a fucking bit. We're in this marriage together so we do it all together. So, assume there's frolicking, but don't imagine it looks anything like this:
And now onto the real reason you're here: you love dessert, but you don't want to spend 16 hours prepping followed by 23 hours of clean up to make something that's Instagram-worthy. You just want to enjoy a dish with great flavours everyone will love.
Place peaches, plums, and lemon juice into a saucepan and simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes.
Add sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla and cook until fruit is soft.
Add cream and stir. Remove from heat.
While fruit is cooking, butter an ovensafe 8"x11" dish, and preheat oven to 400F.
Using a fork, combine brown sugar and butter.
Add in almond meal and flour and mix well.
Spoon the cooked fruit compote into the bottom of the buttered, baking dish, top with streusel mixture, and place in oven.
Bake for 15-20 Minutes 400F.
Let sit for approximately 15 minutes and serve warm. If you're a glutton, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.
Makes enough for 8-10 servings.
