Recipe provided by Neff.

Serves 6.



700g frozen pitted cherries
100g golden caster sugar
3 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp cherry brandy (optional – replace with cherry cordial is preferred)
1 tsp vanilla extract


120g plain flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
110g golden caster sugar
120g cold butter, cut into 1cm cubes
50g dark chocolate, roughly chopped


1. Preheat the oven to CircoTherm® 175°C.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the cherries, sugar, cornflour, cherry brandy and vanilla extract.

3. Spoon the mixture into 6 oven-proof ramekins.

4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder and sugar for the crumble topping. Add the cubed butter and rub using your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the chopped chocolate and then top the ramekins with the crumble mixture.

5. Place the crumbles in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until bubbling at the edges.
