The farmers market is exploding with awesome summer produce. On Saturday mornings, I grab the kiddos and we go stroll the aisles at the market and always find a stash to bring home.
Blueberries and peaches are currently in season and fresh fruit always makes me think of pies and cobblers. Fruit crisps and crumbles are great because they don’t require making crust, so the process is more manageable and quick. Perfect for a nap time kitchen adventure.
Serve this up in bowls with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and it’s sure to be a big hit. For a patriotic twist switch up the peaches for raspberries or strawberries. Any fruit will work- grab what you have!
Blueberry + Peach Crumble- (Slightly adapted from the blog Two Peas and Their Pod)
1.5 cups blueberries
5 peaches, sliced
Fresh lemon juice, from half a lemon.
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
For the crumb topping:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons cold butter, diced
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. In a large bowl, combine blueberries, sliced peaches, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract, granulated sugar, and flour. Gently toss until the fruit is well coated. Set aside.
3. For the crumb topping: in a medium bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Stir together with a whisk. Mix in the butter with your fingers or a pastry cutter until the mixture comes together and resembles course crumbs.
4. Place the fruit mixture in a glass baking dish or cast iron skillet. Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the fruit. Place the dish on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 40 minutes (top should be browned and crisp and the juices bubbly.) Serve warm or at room temperature.
*I think these would be adorable in mini cast iron skillets for a single serving treat.
Now don’t forget to add a scoop of ice cream to your hot crumble. You won’t regret it.
