CHERRY CRUMBLE: SIMPLE FRUIT CRUMBLE DESSERT
Making your cherry crumble with canned cherries is what makes this dessert recipe quick and easy!
(My favorite canned cherries are the ones that are “country cherry” on the label.)
This recipe works for any fruit crumble, so if you don’t like cherries then substitute canned apple pie filling, blueberry filling, or even blackberry filling.
Or, mix it up and make a cherry apple crisp!
What is the fruit crumble topping?
The topping for fruit crumble is super simple:
- Brown Sugar
(Full recipe for fruit crumble topping below.)
Many people leave out the oats and make this as a cherry crumble no oats topping (and it’s just as good).
I like the taste and texture with oats, so we make our fruit crumble recipe with oats.
