Apple and Cherry Crumble


Warm, gooey, fresh out-of-the-oven apple and cherry crumble. Apple and sour cherry filling topped with a brown sugar, cinnamon and rolled oats layer. Then baked until golden and crispy. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream.


  • Filling:
    • 2 apples, peeled, cut into evenly sized chunks 
    • 2 cups sour cherries, pitted 
    • 2 tbsp lemon juice
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
    • 1/3 cup granulated sugar 
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Topping:
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed 
    • 1 tsp cinnamon 
    • 1/8 tsp salt 
    • 6 tbsp butter, melted 
    • 1 cup rolled oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. First, cut half of the cherries in half. Leave the rest whole. Then, in a large bowl, mix the apple chunks, cherries, lemon juice and vanilla extract together. Then, mix in the granulated sugar and flour. 
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter together until evenly combined. Then stir in the rolled oats. 
  4. Evenly pour the apple and cherry mixture into the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish. Then spread the rolled oats mixture on top.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, uncovered. Remove the crumble from the oven and let it cool for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.


  • If using frozen cherries, make sure to defrost them before mixing them into the filling. 
  • The best apples to use for this crumble are some combination of granny smith, honeycrisp, pink lady, golden delicious, winesap, gala or fuji apples.
