Spoon filling into prepared dish.
TOPPING
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, 10 ml sugar, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt.
Rub in butter with your fingertips or a pastry-cutter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Stir in buttermilk with a fork until just combined (do not overmix).
Drop dough into four mounds over the filling, leaving space between mounds.
