Cherry and red currant crumble

cherry-crumble

A crumble is just like a fruit cake with streusel/crumbles on top but without a cake bottom. It’s a delicious dessert idea and tastes good just on ist own or served with some scoop of vanilla ice cream. You could also enjoy it for breakfast. 🙂
Crumble can be made with all kinds of fruits but since it’s still cherry and berry season this one is made with juicy and beautiful  cherries and red currants. Traditionally the crumble crust is made with flour, sugar and butter. Just like a crumb cake but of course I had to come up with healthy twist. So I used oats, almonds and maple syrup instead.
Tastes so fruity and just like summer.
