3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 slices firm-textured bread, crusts removed
1/2 cup raisins, soaked in hot water until plump
4 to 5 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square baking dish.

Sift together the dry ingredients. Cut the butter into small pieces and work into the flour mixture, using a fork, pastry blender or your fingers, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Cut the bread into cubes. Drain the raisins. Toss the raisins, apples and sugar with the bread.

Sprinkle a third of the flour mixture in the baking dish. Add the apple mixture and top with the remaining flour.

Bake for 35 minutes or until the topping is crisp and the fruit bubbling. Serve hot or at room temperature.
