Apple Cherry Crisp

Author: Sandra


  • 4 cups cherries pitted and stems removed {if you have some extra cherries leftover, add them in, more cherries the better)
  • 4 Granny Smith Apples cored, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Crumb Topping

  • 1 1/4 cups yellow cake mix just the mix!
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons chilled butter
  • NOTE: You can make this with up to 8 cups of cherries


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Remove stems from all of the cherries and remove seeds.
  • Peel apples, cored and then slices into quarters. Then slice each quarter piece into three pieces.
  • In a large bowl, add cherries, apple slices, lemon juice, cornstarch, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Gently toss to combine. Pour cherry mixture into skillet or 2-quart baking dish.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine yellow cake mix, brown sugar, salt, and baking powder. Stir to combine. Add butter, and using a pastry blender or a fork, cut butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add crumb topping to cover the cherries entirely. Set in the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes or until crumb topping is a nice golden brown and the juice from the cherries is bubbling.
  • Serve immediately or let it cool and serve later, it's great either way especially with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.
