I was not a peach fan as they don’t have a lovely crunch like apples but started getting peaches for my son since the time he was 5 month old.. Soon I realized that even if the crunch is missing, peaches have a heavenly taste. This weekend I planned to make a dessert with peaches.. Peach pie comes to the mind first but then pie is packed with too many calories so I decided to make a peach crumble. Not that a crumble will not have calories.. Just the guilt will be less.

What do we need?

  1. 3 cups sliced peeled ripe peaches
  2. 1/8 cup brown sugar
  3. 1 1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  4. 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  5. 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  6. 1/5 tsp vanilla extract

TOPPING:

  1. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. A pinch salt
  5. A Pinch ground nutmeg
  6. 1/2 large egg, lightly beaten
  7. 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled

Let’s get cooking

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place peaches in a greased shallow baking dish.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, and cinnamon.
  3. sprinkle this mixture evenly over the peach slices.
  4. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Stir in egg until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 
  5. Now sprinkle this mixture over the peaches.
  6. Pour butter evenly over topping.
  7. Bake 35-40 minutes. Until the top has a golden brown crust.
  8. Serve warm.

I like to scope some ice cream over the peaches. With the ice cream on top of warm crumble it tastes divine.
