This peach crumble tastes like summer and is so simple to make. No rolling pastry or fussing with frosting required. You can use peaches or nectarines, the filling is just the sliced fruit tossed with sugar and a touch of lemon juice. The simple topping is made with butter, light brown sugar, and flour. You don't even need to grease the baking dish! It's the fruit dessert of your dreams!

  • Make the topping: In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and brown sugar on medium until light and fluffy. Add flour and salt and, with your hands, mix until large pieces form. Scatter over filling.

  • Bake until center is bubbling, 40 to 50 minutes, tenting loosely with foil after 30 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes

For Peach-Berry Crumble: Add a cup of raspberries or blueberries to the peaches.

The topping freezes well, we suggest making a double batch and saving half for another day.

I also added 1/2 cup of oats but I'm sure it would have been great without it. This is a divine recipe. Thank you for sharing.

I think this recipe was amazing! The fruit was so juicy and yummy, the whole family loved it. I have even made another batch of the topping to keep in the freezer so i can just cook up a delicious crumble whenever. I have also tried it with other fruits and it works just as well. Really recommend trying.

Not great. Filling was runny, but topping was SALTY! And yes, I used coarse salt per the recipe, but do yourself a favor - don't use any salt at all - it's simply not necessary and using a 1 tsp between the topping and filling was just way too much!

I have been making fruit crisps all summer with all different fruits. I am going to try this topping with a peach-plum-blueberry mixture I have waiting in the fridge.

This is soo yummy. My husband and I loved it. Came out very gooey and delicious, the crumble recipe was very tasty. I added vanilla ice cream and it was perfect. To those saying it is too salty, if you watch the video, she mentions to use 1/4 tsp salt if you are using fine salt. So watch out for that. Mine didn't taste salty at all, great recipe. Making again to take to a friend's BBQ :)

This is fantastic! I wasn't sure it was going to taste that good because when it first came out of the oven it didn't look as crispy as I would have liked ...but it tasted fabulous!! I brought it to a lunch and the dish was licked clean. Will definitely add it to my peach season favorites.

Made exactly as written using beautiful farmer's market peaches. It certainly was easy to throw together, but I was disappointed. The topping had an off taste (too much salt?) and it was gummy underneath the browned surface. In addition, I didn't care for texture of the fruit using cornstarch as a thickener.

This was really wonderful. I peeled my peaches because I like them better that way in a crumble or cobbler, and I served it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream when it was still warm. I like it so much that it really is more like four servings for us. :) This is one of my favorite desserts and truly is one of the greatest joys of summer.

Well, I had to make a peach-raspberry crumble like they showed in the magazine almost right away after I got it. It was very good, although the topping was a bit salty tasting, or something... I will make it again but try to alter the salt - other than that, loved the crumb topping. I have to say too, I'm really surprised to see comments like Kt556's - so negative! It really bothers me to see people respond that way on a public site, esp. in regards to some thing as innocuous as a recipe.

I used blackberries with my peaches and it turned out delicious. It is a little crunchy on top like a crisp, but really easy to make. I would make this again in a heartbeat.

This recipe could have easily been made healthier/better flavor if made with a combo of Whole Wheat flour/ground oats in the topping, and lessen the sugar to 1/2 cup in the filling.

The corn starch gave the filling a very "canned peach" texture and flavor and the whole recipe ended up with a bitter after taste, almost like an artificial sweetener was used, a waste of 2 lbs of peaches.
