Cherry Crumble

This summer my family and I picked some local cherries. Right here in northern Alberta! These tart cherries were delicious! I baked my little heart out. Making pies, crisps, bbq sauce, cakes….ooo…the list goes on. I’m all cherried out! My figures are sore from all the pitting now. Lol…

This cherry crisp was delicious. Super quick and easy. Add some vanilla ice cream and presto amazing dessert for the fam jam. 🙂


For the crumble topping

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups  rolled oats. I use large oats.
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup all purpose white flour. You can also use whole wheat.
  • 2 dashes of nutmeg
  • 2 dashes of sea salt
  • 8 tbsp butter. Room temp.

For the cherry sauce

  • 4 cups fresh pitted cherries
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 water.
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice





For the cherry sauce

Place cherries in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Add water, lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch and vanilla. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and stir. Remove from heat.

For the crumble topping

Place white flour, nutmeg and cinnamon in a medium bowl and mix Together. Add oats, brown sugar, white sugar and butter to bowl. Mix together. I found using your hands is easiest.

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

Line a 8×8 baking pan with tin foil. Lightly grease tin foil with butter. Place cherry sauce  in the baking pan. Sprinkle crumble topping over the cherry sauce.

Bake for 20 min or until the topping is lightly brown.

Divide into bowl and top with with vanilla ice cream

Enjoy! 😀😀
