Heat oven to 425 degrees. Generously butter a 9-inch metal pie plate or other shallow baking dish, including the rim, set aside.


Mix flours, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl, until free of lumps.


Whisk milk, eggs, and vanilla in a smaller bowl until smooth.


Make a well in dry ingredients and add liquid mixture. Whisk gently until butter is just blended. A few lumps are fine.


Gently stir nutmeg into butter. Leaving a 1 -inch border around the edge, distribute fruit evenly in prepared pan. Gently pour butter over fruit. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over butter.

NOTES : A pie-size, not-too-sweet popover with fruit, this dessert puffs up crisp and golden on the surface, soft and eggy within. Not only a dessert, this popover can stand in for a muffin at brunch or breakfast.
