To vary the filling here, use 4 pounds of stone fruit (peaches, nectarines and apricots) cut into large wedges; or 4 pounds of berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries); or 6 pints of blueberries plus 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice.

Filling

  1. 4 pounds plums, cut into 1-inch cubes
  2. 3/4 cup sugar
  3. 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Batter

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup cornmeal
  3. 3/4 cup sugar
  4. 2 tablespoons minced candied ginger
  5. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  6. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  7. 2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cubed
  8. 3/4 cup milk
  1. In a bowl, toss the plums with the sugar and cornstarch and let stand for 10 minutes.
  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.
  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.
