Canned Peach Crumble, a fantastic dessert that is so easy to make, and it's always a great favourite with the whole family. It has a crunchy oat and flour topping, and a a delicate vanilla hint. Cheap, delicious, on the table in about 40 minutes.
What is a crumble dessert?
A crumble is basically any juicy fruit topped with buttery flour (and oats), and baked until golden and crispy. 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 or canned fruit with sugar, vanilla extract, 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.
Since the canned peaches are already juicy, they don't need to be cooked beforehand, they can go straight in the oven dish to be topped.
Ingredients needed to make a peach crumble
For this easy crumble we only need a few ingredients:
- flour - plain flour, no need for self-raising flour
- butter - unsalted butter is best
- oats - I used porridge oats, jumbo oats also ok
- canned peaches
- vanilla extract - or any other extract
Step-by-step photos and instructions
I used 2 large tins of peaches, just because the oven dish I had was pretty large, so use as much as you dish allow you. To make the topping:
- melt the butter
- sift the flour and add it to a large bowl together with the oats
- add the butter and use a spatula to mix everything
- the sugar and vanilla extract can go in too
- give everything a good mix, and job done
- transfer the drained peaches into an oven-proof dish, top with the oat mixture
- bake in the preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius (375 Fahrenheit) for 35-40 minutes until golden and bubbling hot
Canned or fresh fruit?
The best thing about using canned fruit is that they are already sweet and have the perfect texture. If peaches are in season, and are fully ripen and juicy, they can be used too, either on their own or combined with canned ones.
If you wish to add any other canned fruit, they can be added to without pre-cooking them.
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.
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.

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
Peaches and almond together sound fantastic. I'll definitely have to try this one. 🙂
Thank you! The almond flakes give a lovely crunch! And l love the vanilla extract, it makes the crumble extra yummy. I actually use vanilla extract in pretty much everything l bake ?
Never tried peaches and almond together ... Sounds delicious
It's a lovely combination, am sure you will like it 🙂
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.
I have just made this it’s baking away in the ovens smells yummy and hopefully it will taste yummy lol. Very quick and easy I cut down on the sugar used brown as tin peaches have some sugar in them, do love crumble and you can use whatever fruit you have weather it’s tin fruit or not.can’t wait to taste it!
Hello I was wondering if it’s possible to use a substitute flour like oat flour ? thanks!
Because the flour is only used for the topping, I think you can add another type of flour, the texture might be slightly different, and it might be worth keeping an eye on the oven, in case it bakes quicker.
