Ingredients for Peach Crumble

Fresh Peach Filling Ingredients

How to Tell if a Peach is Ripe

A peach is ripe when it has a little bit of “give” when pressed and a sweet, peachy smell. If it is still firm and odorless at the store it will ripen on the counter. Because the color of peaches can vary so much, color is irrelevant when determining ripeness.

Ingredients: peaches, butter, sugar, cornstarch, water, vanilla, flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Please note, that the recipe card has more complete instructions. This is intended as an overview.

Get the ingredients for the recipe ready first. You’ll need to peel, pit, and dice the peaches. You will also need to melt the butter. If you’re not sure how to easily remove the peel, this Peach Dessert post shows you how.

FAQ’s

What is the difference between a peach cobbler and a peach crumble?

Our Peach cobbler is made with a biscuit mix that gives it more of a cake consistency. This peach crumble recipe doesn’t have a crust.

Is this recipe for peach crumble gluten-free?

Yes, you can easily make this peach crumble gluten-free by using gluten-free all-purpose flour!

Can I leave the peach skins on?

Yes, but I don’t recommend it. Once the peaches bake, the skin will slide off the diced peaches which would affect the appearance. I describe how to easily remove the skins here.

Can I make a peach crumble with frozen fruit?

Yes, you can. Let the peaches thaw and pat them dry.

Can you make peach crumble with canned peaches?

Yes, you can but I really don’t recommend it. They have a soft texture and hold additional liquid which could result in a soggy mess.

Tips to Make the Perfect Peach Crumble

Peach crumble is easier to cut into servings if it’s chilled. However, it’s delicious warm so I will often just scoop it out instead of cutting it. I also wouldn’t worry about trying to cut it into squares. Scooping it out with a spoon gives a rustic homemade feel that’s perfect for casual entertaining.

I used a 9×13 pan. Use two 8×8 pans so you can serve one and freeze one for later.

Substitute with pie plates for a peach crumble pie. Depending on the size of your baking dishes, you may need two. You can always add more peaches and this recipe will still work perfectly.

Use individual single-serving dishes. I love having my own, don’t you?
