Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Lightly butter a 8-inch square (20 cm) glass baking dish.

In bowl, combine berries, sugar, flour and lemon rind; toss to coat evenly and spread into prepared baking dish.


In bowl, combine cheese, oats, flour and sugar; drizzle with butter and toss to mix. Sprinkle evenly over fruit.

Bake for 40- 45 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbling. Serve warm or at room temperature topped with vanilla yogurt.


To get more juice from a lemon, store at room temperature. Grate the peel first and then juice. Freeze any leftover juice in small container for future use.

Add 1/4 cup (60 ml) of chopped toasted pecans or walnuts to the topping. For a special treat, top with whipped cream or ice cream instead of vanilla yogurt.

Substitute Canadian Cheddar for the Swiss.
