800g cherries, stoned (or 2 x 480g bags frozen cherries, defrosted)

90g golden caster sugar

2 tablespoons cornflour

¼-½ teaspoon almond extract (to taste)

225g ready-made crumble topping or mix 310g nutty granola (I like Udi’s gluten-free Almond Vanilla Flavour Granola)

4 amaretti biscuits, crumbled


Step 1

1 Heat the oven to 190°C/fan oven 170°C/mark 5. Place the cherries in a mixing bowl and stir in the caster sugar, cornflour and almond extract. Spoon into a wide gratin dish. If you pile the cherries too deep, they won’t cook.

Step 2

Mix together the crumble topping, granola and crushed amaretti, and spread evenly over the cherries. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, covering the dish with aluminium foil if it is starting to brown too much, until golden brown.
