How to Make It

Step 1    

In a bowl, toss the plums with the sugar and cornstarch and let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 2    

Preheat the oven to 375°. In a food processor, pulse the flour with the cornmeal, sugar, candied ginger, baking powder and salt. Add the butter and pulse until crumbly. Add the milk and pulse until moistened.

Step 3    

Spread the filling in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Scoop 15 mounds of dough over the filling. Bake in the center of the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden and crisp. Let cool for 1 hour before serving.
