Peach and Blueberry Crumble (The Easiest Dessert Ever!)


This is quite simply the easiest dessert to make in the world. Plus it makes the most of summer’s greatest gift, the humble but oh so divine peach. If you’re new to the world of baking, this recipe is for you. And if you’re an old pro around the kitchen, this is also for you… simply because it’s that delicious. The taste is beautifully delicate, juicy and satisfying.This crumble will also make quite an impression after a summer meal or in the late afternoon, just because.

True confession; I’ve been known to eat the leftover crumble the next day for breakfast.

Right! You’ll need…

For the fruit:

2 pounds firm, ripe peaches (6 to 8 yellow peaches)

2 teaspoons grated lemon-zest

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

½ cup granulated sugar

¼ cup all-purpose flour

1cup fresh blueberries (1/2 pint)

For the crumble:

1cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup granulated sugar

¼ cup light brown sugar, lightly packed

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ pound (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, diced

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F

(You don’t have to do this but it makes it so much easier on you) Immerse the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the skins peel off easily.

Place them immediately in cold water.

Peel the peaches, slice them into thick wedges, and place them in a large bowl. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, granulated sugar, and flour.

Toss well. Gently mix in the blueberries. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes. Spoon the mixture into a baking dish.

For the topping combine the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and butter in a bowl. Using a spoon, mix the ingredients until the butter is the size of peas. Rub the mixture with your fingertips, until it’s in big crumbles, then sprinkle evenly over fruit.

Just look at the sticky sweet goodness!

Place the baking dish on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the top is browned and crisp and the juices are bubbly. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla or dollop of whipped cream on the top.

Let me know how you get on with it in your kitchen.

I’m sure it will be peachy!

    I’m on it! Peaches and blueberries are my favorites, especially when accompanied by brown sugar, butter and yummy vanilla ice cream. I look forward to making it for dessert and enjoying the leftovers. xoxo

    It looks tasty as it is but do you think it’ll go well with a brownie? ^_^

    O Jennifer……..I made it tonight…..I had waited because to put the oven on in N.Y.C.
    on Saturday and Sunday was a very bad idea.! I awoke on Monday determine to make the
    crisp. I made it. It looks like jewels of blueberries and peaches and I very happy to have
    home- made whipped cream to devour with the berries and all that sugar. Thank-you
    for a summer of pleasures. Your kitchen is SO beautiful!
