Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

To create the batter, start by sifting together the flour, baking powder and salt in the large bowl.

In the mixer, cream butter, sugar, egg, lemon juice, and zest.

Alternate adding the dry ingredients and milk until just moistened.

Fold in fruit then pour into greased baking dish.

Next, add the dry topping ingredients into the bowl. Add butter and cut into dry ingredients with a pasty blender until it comes to cornmeal consistency.

Sprinkle over the surface of the batter.

Bake for 45 minutes until done. Test with toothpick. If comes out clean, you're good to go.
