Easy Peach Crisp

Peach Crisp or Peach Crumble, a fantastic summer dessert made with fresh juicy peaches, and a crunchy oat and flour topping. It’s super easy to make, and a great choice if you are looking for egg-free desserts for your family.

Don’t you just love all the delicious fruit that are in season at this time of the year? It might be strawberry time since Wimbledon is on, but peaches are at their best too, and they are just too good not to be used in a scrumptious dessert like this one.

The term crumble is a lot more common in the UK; in fact, crisp is used for chips, and chips are fries. I know, I bit confusing, isn’t it? But while I am happy using either term, one thing is sure, the delicious peach crisp / crumble is oen of the quickest and easiest dessert you can make.

Well, I know it needs some time in the oven for the topping to crisp up, but other than that, you just mix the fresh fruit with sugar, vanilla extract and cinammon, cover them with the flour, butter and oats topping, and job done. No complicated fillings, no cream that needs chilling beforehand, no chocolate melting, etc

It is said that the dessert actually became famous in the UK during WW2, when food rationing was in place, and the dessert did not need too many expensive ingredients to make. Oats are optional, but I prefer them for an extra crispy crumble.

I used fresh peaches, just because I found some really juicy, super sweet and delicious peaches at the local market, but otherwise, you can use canned peaches too, they are always sweet, and make for a cheap alternative, if peaches are not in season.

Also, almond flour can be used too with the plain flour, and feel free to throw in some almond flakes too, for extra flavour and crunch.

It’s really a very simple recipe, and you can tweak it the way you like, there is no right or wrong. Just use whatever you have in your pantry, don’t worry about swapping ingredients, as long as the consistency is not changed.

We want a bubbly hot fruit base with a nice and crunchy layer, and that’s what we get with lots of different ingredients.

If you want to try with different fruit, apple, berries, apricots, pears are an equally delicious option, or even a combination of more fruits.

You can serve the peach crisp with cream, ice cream or custard, or just on its own, it’s entirely up to you.

        Okay! I am trying again. My first reply failed. It has been a while since I have done this but I think you have to have your website on your gravatar. There is no link to your blog underneath your name no sorry. There is no follow option underneath your name when you Comment so that leads me to believe that you have not put your blog on your gravatar. Forgive me if I am wrong like I said it’s been a while since I have done this. Please overlook the spelling errors in this message. I am teaching my Google speech to recognize the way I talk so that I can answer, faster than typing.

      Thank you! It is a good dessert when you want to have something sweet, but don’t want to feel too guilty after 🙂 I’ve been trying to be good and not have too many sweets, but for some reasons I always end up baking something haha

    A crisp or a crumble is such a wonderful dessert, I make them quite often myself, with whatever fruit or berry happens to be in season. They are loved by everyone.
