  3. With an electric mixer, beat together butter and 1/3 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. On low speed, beat in half of flour mixture. Beat in buttermilk, then remaining flour mixture.
  4. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into 8 mounds over fruit. If desired, sprinkle cinnamon-sugar topping over batter.
