A friend decided to plant a peach tree in early summer in hopes of having a few peaches that she could call her own.
To his surprise, the peach tree was a real hit, too! And now I have a surplus of this deliciously juicy fruit.
Although I love eating peaches the old fashioned way, I knew I had to use the extras wisely because God forbid, I should be wasting just one! I decided to make a peach crumble and my family finished it in a matter of minutes.
Now when I say I have a lot of peaches, I wasn’t kidding.
This recipe called for 14, and I still had an absurd amount left.
I made this crumble for about 12 people, so you can cut this recipe in half if you use less.
For the crumble part, you will need 2 sticks of butter, 2 cups of brown sugar and 3 cups of flour.
All you have to do is mix the sugar and the flour together, then melt your butter before adding it.
Mix everything until the ingredients are well combined, but look like a crumbly mixture. You can set it aside until your filling is complete.
For the peach filling, you will need at least 10 peaches, ½ cup granulated sugar, 1 lemon, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of ginger.
You want to first cut all of your peaches into slices and once added to the bowl add the rest of your ingredients.
Now is the time to assemble your crumble. I like to put some of the brown sugar mixture in the bottom of the pot, then layer the peach filling on top. Then spread the rest of the crumble over the peach filling and top it off with a last sliced peach for decoration.
Bake at 400 for about 40 minutes then broil at the end for an extra crisp. This recipe is easy, delicious, and a refreshing summer dessert.
