Ingredients

  • 1kg fresh cherries , pitted
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 1 lemon , juiced
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

For the topping

  • 150g plain flour
  • 100g cold butter
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 70g soft brown sugar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the cherries into a medium-sized ovenproof dish (around 28cm) and mix with the sugar, lemon and vanilla. Set aside.

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 4. Tip the flour and butter into a mixing bowl and rub together with your fingertips to create a fine, breadcrumb-like mixture. Stir through the salt, brown sugar, oats and most of the almonds. Tip over the cherry mixture, then top with the remaining almonds.
