Peach & Berry Crumble

I absolutely love berries, all types of berries and it's definitely berry season here in Portland. I was having friends over for dinner last week and saw all these delicious blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries at the grocery store, and had instant inspiration for dessert. I then walked by the peaches and immediately picked up a bag of those too and put some of my berries back, (as I have a weakness for peaches as well and just couldn't decide on one or the other!)
I love the more traditional biscuit type of topping that my mom usually makes, but was really swayed when I saw Darlene's delicious little berry crumbles, which you can read about here that she posted on here blog, so decided to go that route instead. Well, the end result was absolutely amazing. I have to admit that we only ate half the dessert during my little dinner party and I ended up having the other half all week for breakfast and dessert!

Peach & Berry Crumble

6 Fresh Peaches, peeled and sliced into wedges
1 Pint Blueberries
1/2 Pint Raspberries
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Flour

Crumble Topping
1 Cup Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cups Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Oats
1 Stick Butter, diced

Combine the peaches, blueberries, raspberries, sugar and flour in a large bowl stirring gently, then place into a large greased baking dish or 9x13 inch baking pan.
To make crumble topping combine all dry ingredients, next cut in the butter and mix with hands until mixture resembles small pebbles. Pour topping evenly over fruit.
Bake crumble in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until bubbling and topping is dark golden brown. (I always put my dish on a foil covered baking pan just in case it bubbles over.) Let cool slightly and serve alone or with ice cream if desired!

Jason, as the peach season comes to a close down here in South Carolina & Georgia, I will definitely be trying your recipe. Nothing is better than baked peaches in any type of cobbler or crumble.

You have a great blog – glad I stumbled upon it!

Many thanks….
