Summer Peach Crumble

One of our favourite things to do on a weekend is visit St. Lawrence Market. Every Saturday, we visit the Farmer’s market there to see what fresh produce they have available. Now that it’s summer, it’s exciting to see what’s in season and it’s always so refreshing to see all the vibrant colors of the different fruits and vegetables they have available. Although the produce looks super fresh and amazing, they’re often very expensive 🙁  We decided to go closer to the end of day to the farmer’s market to see if we could get an end of day sale and lucky for us, one of the vendors sold us a giant basket of peaches for a fraction of the price!

Peaches

We were ecstatic! But the moment we got home, we realized how many peaches we had and there’s no way we could finish it all in a week…. So we tried to think of a few recipes we could make that would use up these peaches and one of them was peach crumble.

Peach crumbleInstead of making it in a traditional baking dish, I decided to make them in individual ramekins instead so that it’s easier to serve since it’s already portioned for each person. The dish itself is pretty easy to make – I kinda improvised the measurements for the filling.

Here’s how to make it:

Summer Peach Crumble

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 3

Ingredients

    For the filling:
  • 5 large peaches, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
    For the crumble:
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup butter, slightly softened
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/8 cup white sugar
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg yolk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Prep the filling - Mix all filling ingredients together and toss to coat the peaches.
  3. To prep the crumble, mix all ingredients together and crumble it together with your hands until it's well combined. It should kinda look like cookie dough at the end.
  4. When ready to assemble, put the filling into the ramekin and scoop some of the crumble on top, just enough that it covers the peaches. Don't put too much or it'll be too thick and won't cook evenly.
  5. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown. When you poke the filling with a fork, it should be tender.

You don’t have to use peach as the filling. This recipe is easily adaptable and you can use other fruits! So give it a try 🙂
