This fresh peach dessert bakes to perfection with a crunchy spiced crumble topping. It's a fabulous alternative to the South's beloved peach cobbler, and nobody will complain. The dessert calls for fresh peaches, but frozen peaches or well-drained canned peaches may be substituted.
If you like a topping with more texture, add about 1/2 cup of rolled oats or some chopped pecans.
Note: while there are multiple steps to this recipe, this peach dessert is broken down into workable categories to help you better plan for preparation and baking.
Peel the Peaches
Gather the ingredients.
Fill a large pot with ice and water. Set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Put peaches in boiling water and boil for about 10 to 20 seconds, or just until there are splits in the skin.
Remove peaches to ice water to halt cooking process.
Begin to peel peaches with a small, sharp knife. The skins should slip off easily.
Remove pits and slice peaches thinly.
Prepare the Peach Crumble
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Butter a 1 1/2-quart baking dish.
Combine fresh sliced peaches and brown sugar; stir to blend thoroughly. The combination of fresh peaches with brown sugar will create the syrup. Pour fruit and sugar mixture into prepared baking dish.
Combine flour, granulated sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Stir with a spoon or whisk to blend.
Whisk egg in small bowl. Add egg to dry ingredients and stir with a fork until mixture is crumbly.
Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over peach filling.
Drizzle melted butter evenly over crumb topping.
Bake peach crumble for 40 to 45 minutes, or until topping is lightly browned and filling is bubbling around the edges.
- Substitute frozen peaches or well-drained canned peaches if you don't have fresh peaches.
- Peaches are available throughout the year, but they are in season from May until October. When buying peaches, choose fruit that is not too soft and is free from cuts and bruises. Ripe peaches will have a sweet aroma and yield to gentle pressure.
- If the peaches are hard, keep them at room temperature until they ripen. You can ripen them more quickly by putting them into a paper bag, which is similar to the way you ripen bananas.
- When the peaches are ripe, store them in the refrigerator. Bring them back to room temperature before eating to enjoy the flavor.
