Cherry Lime Coffee Cake Crumble

Sheila Nakata


This is a gluten free recipe that was modified for a friend. You will NEVER taste the difference. Almond flour adds such a depth of flavor, you will wonder why you haven't used it before. Subtle and moist this crumble is fresh and lively and will surely make you the star of the show! The almond flour can be substituted for All purpose flour without notice. Frozen cherries or canned cherries can be used if drained. Do not use cherry pie filling. I used Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour.
