  • zest (grated rind) of one lemon
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter a 2-quart casserole dish or 9" square baking pan.

  4. Pour the dry mixture and the lemon juice over the berries and stir to combine.
  5. Transfer the fruit to the prepared baking dish.
  6. To make the topping: Whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Work in the butter until the mixture looks like cornmeal.
