Peach Crumble

28 Jun

One thing I can’t resist in the summertime, besides lounging on the beach with a cold drink, is incorporating fruit into my baking. Fruit has a way of making every bite sweeter, more refreshing, and (in my mind) healthier!

My favorite fruits to bake with are apples and peaches. At this point in the year I’ve usually exhausted my excitement for apples after the numerous apple pies I make in the Fall for Thanksgiving, so I use the spring to enjoy baking with peaches. While perusing through several different recipes incorporating peaches, I can across a very simple Peach Crumble. There aren’t too many ingredients and all of them are household staples.

To learn  more about the types of peaches to buy, how to store them and tell if they’re ripe check out All You Need to Know… Peaches.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 1/2 to 3 Pounds Fresh Peaches: Peeled, Pitted and Sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Large Egg, beaten
  • 1/2 Cup (1 Stick) Butter, melted

To Prepare:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Butter an 11 x 7 inch baking dish

Directions:

If you recall the Peach Upside Down Cake from May 17, 2011, it be time-consuming to peel, slice and pit peaches so if you’d like feel free to purchased pre-sliced peaches from your supermarket. If you have a little extra time on your hands check out my Baking Tips for Peeling, Slicing and Pitting peaches for some helpful hints.

Once the peaches are sliced, combine them in a bowl with the brown sugar and blend well. Pour into the buttered 11 x 7 inch baking dish and set aside.


Combine the flour, granulated sugar, salt and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl. Once blended, add the beaten egg. Stir lightly until it comes together in a crumb mixture.


Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the peaches and then drizzle with the melted butter.


Bake the peach crumble for about an hour and a half or until the crumble is lightly browned.


Once out of the oven, let sit for 10 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

It’s that simple!

Enjoy!
