This cake is rich and tangy with mascarpone cheese, spiked with sweet white wine. Once baked, the berries sink into the cake and burst, becoming a built-in layer of fresh jam, while the crumble melts and crisps into a cookie-like crust that provides wonderful textural contrast. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or at room temperature with a cup of steaming coffee in the morning.
This is a great starter pie for blueberry season. The crisp, flaky crust is a perfect foil to the juicy berries, and the sweet and slightly savory oat crumble topping is easier to make than a traditional top crust. This is a pie that works as well post BBQ as it does for breakfast.
Fresh cherries are lightly sweetened and baked under lots of hearty oats. Feel free to garnish with some creamy Greek yogurt.
