Make the most of cherry season with a delicious and easy cherry crumble! This summer dessert is a scrumptious combination of sweet cherries and hazelnut streusel baked to crunchy perfection.
Easy cherry streusel recipe
I like to precook the cherries over the stove with some sugar and cornflour to thicken it the sauce. This way you get soft fruits and a wonderfully thick sauce. If your cherries don’t draw a lot of moisture simply add a splash of water or cherry juice to get the cooking going.
Next up are the hazelnut streusel, which is quickly mixed together with just flour, brown sugar, hazelnuts and a generous dash of cinnamon. Serve the crumble with some ice cream and you’ve got the perfect summer treat.
You can prepare the crumble in 4 to 6 ramekins or on large pie dish. And if you need to cater to a large crowd, simply double or triple the ingredients.
