All purpose flour ¼ cup
Salt 1/8 teaspoon
Nectarines, thinly sliced 2 cups

  1. Preheat an oven to 425°F.
  2. Using 1 teaspoon of the butter, grease an 8- or 9-inch gratin dish or other shallow baking dish, then sprinkle it with 1 tablespoon of the sugar. Arrange the fruit in the dish.
  3. In a bowl, combine the egg, milk, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and salt and whisk together. When well-mixed, gradually whisk in the flour.
  4. Pour this cream-like batter over the fruit. Sprinkle the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar, butter, and almonds over the top.
