Cherry crumble

Cherry crumble is a delicious dessert that is very easy to bake. What makes this dessert unique is the intense flavor and enveloping texture of the baked fruit, which contrasts with the crunchy texture of the crumbled pastry on the surface. The cherry crumble can be served in a single baking dish or in small cocottines or single portions. Want to make this dessert even more sublime? Serve the crumble with cream or vanilla ice cream.


Recipe for 4 servings
Preparation: 10 minutes
Baking: 30 minutes
Resting time: 15 minutes
Total time: 55 minutes
Difficulty level: 2


For the crumble
90 g plain flour
70 g almond flour
70 g butter
70 g sugar
the zest of ½ untreated lemon
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon powder
For the cherry base
400 g fresh cherries
2 tbsp sugar
the zest of ½ untreated lemon


First prepare the crumble: in a bowl pour the flours, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and finely grated zest of half a lemon. Mix quickly with a fork and add the refrigerated butter cut into pieces. Knead the dough until it is crumbled and place the resulting mixture in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
In the meantime, pit the cherries, add sugar and grated zest of half a lemon, mix and distribute the mixture into a single baking dish or use several dishes (depending on how you wish to present the crumble).
Remove the crumbled mixture from the refrigerator and spread it over the cherries, making sure to cover them perfectly and without pressing it. Bake the crumble in a preheated oven at 175 °C for 30 minutes, until the surface is golden. Remove from the oven and serve the cherry crumble warm or at room temperature.
