My late husband loved everything and anything cherry! One of his favorites was Cherry Crumble the way his mum in London made it. This is like a pie but without the crust. Its very easy to make and is always a HUGE hit when you need to bring a dish to pass.
You can use ANY fruit filling for this recipe, as I have made it using apple, strawberry and peach fillings as well. It really is an outstanding versatile recipe.
