Ingredients
Filling

  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet cherries (5 cups), fresh or frozen, pitted
  • 1 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon kirsch or brandy (optional)

Topping

  • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 tablespoon chopped almonds or walnuts

 


Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking dish (or similar 1 1/2- to 2-quart dish) with cooking spray.
  2. To prepare filling, combine cherries, raspberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and kirsch (or brandy), if using, in a large bowl; toss to coat. Place the filling in the prepared baking dish. Cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make topping. Mix flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl with a fork. Add butter and blend with a pastry blender or your fingertips. Add oil and stir to coat. Add orange juice concentrate and blend with your fingertips until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  4. After 20 minutes, stir the fruit filling and sprinkle the topping evenly over it. Sprinkle with almonds (or walnuts). Bake, uncovered, until the fruit is bubbly and tender and the topping is lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes more. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.

About FitFreek202

Hi, thanks for stopping by at my website. This is my journey to achieve 202 pounds of lean body mass and 15% Body Fat. Let me explain. Weighing yourself with traditional scales is very important, but you also need to measure your body fat as well. You could go to the gym and weigh yourself before and after a long run. The second weigh in, you may well have lost two pounds – that is water from sweat, not body fat. So, my goal is to be 202 pounds LBM and 36 pounds of fat – a total of 238 pounds. When i’m there, my goal is to be 202 pounds LBM and 22 pounds of fat – a total of 224 pounds. This blog will chart my progress.
