  4. Sprinkle all over with a good pinch of sugar
  5. Add the blobs of butter around the pan
  6. Place in an oven at 180c and bake for 15 minutes or until you can easily pierce the fruit with a knife. (you want the fruit to be soft)

Notes
I served this with vanilla ice cream, but cream would work just as well.
