Cherry-Berry Crumble – a fresh cherry and raspberry filling covered with the most spectacular, crumbly topping you won’t be able to resist. One of the best fresh cherry desserts!
Fresh cherries make the most wonderful, summertime desserts. Whether it’s a fresh cherry coffee cake, a delicious cherry clafoutis or a scoop of fresh cherry ice cream, this summer fruit is always a welcomed, seasonal treat.
Fresh Cherry-Berry Crumble Recipe
I’m at a loss for words when it comes to describing how good this rustic, cherry crumble tastes. It turns out combining raspberries with fresh cherries for a filling is a really good idea! The topping is also irresistible so there’s that.
A big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top is optional, but do everything you can to make it happen.
This is quite possibly the epitome of the perfect summer dessert when cherries are their sweetest.
Ingredients for Fresh Cherry-Berry Crumble
The topping is the best, thick and crumbly. It’s made of dark brown sugar, flour, oats, butter, cinnamon and salt.
And the filling is simple – you’ll need fresh cherries and raspberries, sugar, water and cornstarch for thickening.
How to Make Fresh Cherry-Berry Crumble
Make the crumble using your hands. All ingredients are tossed into a bowl and smushed together with your fingers to make clumps.
The fresh fruit filling is simmered on the stovetop to soften the fruit before it goes in to the ramekins.
Top each ramekin with the crumble and bake until fruit is bubbling.
Let cool slightly before serving and top with vanilla ice cream.
Make sure the butter is softened before making the crumble.
Use old-fashioned oats, not quick cooking oats for the crumble.
Use a cherry pitter to pit your cherries.
Cover your baking tray in aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
Crumbles should cool at least twenty minutes on a cooling rack before serving so juices thicken. They can be served warm or at room temperature.
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to three days.
