By then, the cherry was beginning to turn soft and I quickly went on to cook it. At least I can extend the life span by doing so. Subsequently son requested for a Cherry Crumble.
I was asking whether the family prefer a hot or a cold dessert and all opted for a cold one.
So here is my Easy Cherry Crumble. Totally love it especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream which we later on add to it.
What you need:
500g fresh cherry
Sugar to taste
3 tbsp brown sugar
150g plain flour
Using a pit remover, remove the pit from the cherry. Keep the pits.
Add pits and water and bring to boil.
Add in sugar and stir until sugar dissolved.
Sieve out the pit and pour this syrup into the cherry.
Bring to boil and let it simmer for 20 mins. Stirring occasionally. Remove and set aside to cool before chilling in the fridge.
In a bowl, add brown sugar to flour.
Rub in the butter to form crumbs.
Bake for 10 - 15 mins at 180°C or until brown. Remove.
Distribute the cherries into serving dish, top it off with the crumbles.
Serve as it is or with a serving of ice cream on top.
