How to make peach crumble

Peach crumble comes together in a few easy steps. Combine sliced peaches, brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, vanilla and cinnamon in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Spread the peaches into the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish.

In another bowl, combine ingredients for the topping, including flour, sugar, pecans (optional), baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir in a beaten egg until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the peaches and then drizzle the butter over the crumble topping.

Bake the peach crumble for 35 to 40 minutes, until lightly browned and the filling is bubbling around the edges. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or fresh whipped cream.

Should we peel peaches?

You don’t have to peel peaches as the skin is completely edible. We love the skin on so we leave it on for this peach crumble. However, if you prefer to peel the peaches, feel free to do so. Either way, they taste great.

Can you use frozen peaches?

Yes, you can uses frozen peaches for this dessert, although we recommend thawing them before using. Frozen peaches may create a different texture but taste just as delicious.

Peach crumble is similar to peach cobbler but with a slightly different texture. Traditional peach cobbler is typically served with a biscuit, batter or dumpling topping. This peach dessert is more like a crisp. We call it a peach crumble because it includes a simple layer of peaches with a crumble topping. We always love serving the peach crumble with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some homemade whipped cream.
