The taste was excellent. However, the fruit mixture seemed over-cooked and the topping would have been so much better without covering it while cooking. I would have preferred a little bit of firmness in the crust to contrast with the soupiness of the fruit.

Yummy and very quick. Might make the dumpling-ish topping a bit more wholesome with almond or WW flour next time.
