Fruit Lasagna

My husband is a great cook. One day while watching PBS, he saw someone make a fruit lasagna. Like a lot of people, he thought he could remember the recipe, so he did not take the time to write it down. Several days later he tried to make the recipe that he saw on TV, but could not remember exactly what ingredients were in it. After a little trial and error, he has come up with his own recipe for fruit lasagna. We make this all the time with different kinds of fruit.

Fruit Lasagna

Bread (any kind of bread, enough to layer your baking dish twice)
4-5 cups Fruit (plum, pear, apple, etc.)
¾ cup Sugar
¾ cup Brown Sugar
3 tablespoons Chilled Butter
+/- Pecans and your favorite spices
½ cup Flour

Slice bread into ¼” thick slices. Then place bread on a cookie sheet and toast. Cut fruit into large chunks (peel fruit if desired). Coat fruit with ¾ cup sugar in mixing bowl. Butter baking dish then line with toasted sliced bread. Layer with fruit, then toast, then fruit. Combine 3 tablespoons of chilled butter with ¾ cup brown sugar, ½ cup flour and nuts if desired. Crush chilled butter with flour, brown sugar and nuts using a fork in order to make a crumble. Top layered baking dish with crumble and bake at 350 degrees for one hour uncovered. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. We have topped with caramel ice cream topping! Yum!
Hope you enjoyed the recipe. See more at Menu Plan Monday!
