Strawberry grunt

The grunt is the most forgiving and versatile American style baked dessert I have ever made. This strawberry grunt is the first I’ve made in the PNW.

I’ve baked it at 4 in the morning with Little Nettle when she wouldn’t sleep. I’ve made it for holidays with omni relatives who devour it. I’ve used persimmons, blueberries, plums and strawberries, added lime juice or lemon juice, spiced with ginger, cardamom, cinnamon or nutmeg, topped with simple, cornbread or lemon poppyseed biscuits - it always comes out delicious. Unassuming name, completely stalwart dessert.
