Fresh Cherry Crumb Cake!

I love a good crumb cake, especially one made with fresh fruit like this cherry crumb cake.  

Fresh Cherry Crumb Cake-

In the summer time I purchase fresh fruit when it is in season and on sale.  I then freeze the fruit so I have access to fresh fruit in the winter.  Our winters seem so long, so being able to have some fresh fruit out of season sometimes takes away the winter blues.

Fall and winter is when I do my most baking.  Their is something warm and cozy about baking and making our favorite comfort foods.  What is our all time favorite winter dessert comfort food?  This is a hard question for me to answer, I have so many that I could not just choose one.

Fresh Cherry Crumb Cake- Crumb Cake Recipe 

Do you know the secret for freezing fresh fruit?  I know I have shared this before, but wanted to share again.  I place the fruit on a baking tray and spread out and flash freeze them on the tray.  Once they are frozen, I transfer them into a plastic freezer safe container.  This allows you to use a small amount of berries without them clumping all together.  It is the small simple little things that you can do to save you time and frustration when baking.  

Now I am ready for a nice warm cup of tea and a slice of warm fresh cherry crumb cake.  How about you, do you like to warm up your desserts?
