  • To prepare the filling: in a medium saucepan, stir together sugar, cornstarch, ginger, and nutmeg. Stir in the water. Cook and stir until thickened. Gently stir in orange and grapefruit sections.

  • To prepare the topping: in a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, the baking powder, ginger, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, egg, and milk. Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.

  • Spoon filling into a 2-quart square baking dish. Using two spoons, drop the topping into nine mounds onto hot filling.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into topping comes out clean. Cool slightly. If desired, sprinkle with toasted coconut and/or top with dessert topping. Serve warm.
