- 1kg fresh cherries, pitted
One of the delights of the summer, cherries are much loved for their succulent texture, flavour…
- 50g golden caster sugar
- 1 lemon, juiced
Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
For the topping
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.
Bake the crumble in the centre of the oven for 30-35 mins or until the topping is golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
