  • 6 cups cherries stemmed and pitted (if you have more cherries, use them!, up to 8 cups)
  • 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 tablespoon chilled butter


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Remove stems from all of the cherries and remove seeds.
  • In a large bowl, add cherries, 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.
