This is one of my favourite desserts loaded with fresh or frozen cherries. It is incredibly easy and quick to whip up using only simple ingredients. Make this any time of the year, and make sure to serve a slice with a big scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
I have been getting many comments about how this dessert is different from crumble. Well, both desserts are packed with fresh fruit filling and streusel topping. A slight difference is the usage of oats. The crisp topping of this dessert is made with a simple oat mixture to keep its structure. Apart from that, they both are amazing desserts!
Feel free to make a big batch of this decadent dessert ahead and keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, just pop it in the oven and bake for an easy and quick dessert any time!
1 large egg
32 ounces cherries (fresh or frozen)
1 c. sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 c. rolled oats
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 c. all-purpose flour
How to make Old Fashioned Cherry Crisp
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F.
Step 2: Start by removing the pits from the fresh cherries. If using frozen cherries, make sure to thaw them before using them. Place the cherries in a greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan or stone.
Step 3: Place the flour, sugar, oats, baking powder, egg, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Beat until you have a crumbled mixture.
Step 4: Over the cherries, sprinkle the mixture, making sure not to cover the cherries fully.
Step 5: Drizzle the melted butter on top.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven when done, and serve the cherry crisp with a big scoop of ice cream or whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
