Thick and crunchy crumble is baked on top of a thick layer of gorgeous peaches. Full of delicious flavor this peach crumble recipe is a fabulous quick weeknight dessert. Served a la mode, of course!
I am completely torn. I am so over the "summer weather" and I can't wait for fall. But don't want to say goodbye to things like pool days, ice cream cake, beach Saturday and all the fruits. So naturally, I bought the two together, fall to me means crumble any kinda crumble. Apple and blackberry, rhubarb and in today's case peach. I figured it was a good combo of summer and fall. It's my sumall dessert? 😉
Another thing I love about this peach crumble recipe is how easy it is. Whether it's summer and you don't want to be inside or its fall and you want to be spending more time cozy on the sofa, everyone loves a quick easy dessert.
How do you make peach crumble?
Great question, it's easy. You basically cut up some peaches toss em with some delicious things then make an easy 5 minute crumble and place it on top then bake it. And obviously, serve with vanilla ice cream- would be torturous not to.
Are you supposed to peel a peach?
You could totally peel your peaches, or you could be lazy like me and not peel them. The peach skin is perfectly edible and it doesn't make a big difference so for a recipe like this I do not peel the peaches.
How do you make crumble topping?
To me, a crumble is more flour-based where a crisp is more oat-based. And much to my taste buds liking they are both brown sugar-based, can we not talk about how good brown sugar is. My lovvvah.
Anyways to make this crumble start in a large bowl with your mix together flour, brown sugar, a few oats and nuts for crunch, and salt. Once combined add your cold butter, I cut my butter in half longways and flip it over cut in half again long ways then slice it into 8 slices so you end up with 32 small pieces.
Next, use your hands to rub the butter into the dry ingredients, this takes a few minutes so just take your time and once you have a coarse meal and there are no thick pieces of butter left you are done.
Then place your peaches in your dish, whack the crumble on top back for 25 minutes or so and then let it cool for a hot minute and devour with tons of vanilla ice cream.
This peach crumble is really a great weeknight dessert idea. Or perfect easy but delicious dessert for a dinner party. You can easily double it to serve a crowd.
