Peach pear crumble with almond flakes

Peach pear crumble with almond flakes, a scrumptious dessert that brings together soft juicy fruit and a crunchy almond oat topping. Beautifully moist and flavourful, this crumble is a family favourite dessert.

Crumble is truly a classic British pudding, with apple being probably the most-loved one, although peach, plum, rhubarb, berries, pear are also common. The pudding became very popular during World War Il, ย when food rationing was in place, thus the topping was a far more economical alternative to the more sophisticated pie pastry.

For my crumble l used plain flour, jumbo oats, ground and flaked almonds, although you can make it only using flour, if you wish or do not have the other ingredients.The buttery flour will create a golden topping, while the fruit will be bubbly hot and moist.

Even if the topping is buttery, the crumble is not heavy at all, on the contrary, the fruits give it a fresh touch. I opted for canned fruit, rather than fresh, as l wanted the fruit to be really sweet. However, if the fruit are in season, so they are juicy and fully ripen, then by all means, go for the fresh ones. Peaches are not that yummy out of their season, at least not the ones the supermarkets sell us.

Kids seem to really enjoy crumbles, probably because they are fruity. I honestly love any kind of crumble, the more fruit, the better. It can be topped with custard, cream or ice cream, if you want to make it extra indulgent, but if you don’t happen to have any of these, that’s not the end of the world, the crumble is a treat on its own.

In the above photo you can see the before and after baking, l just love the colours. Do take care when removing it from the oven, the crumble is really hot, and a tad messy. What a treat, perfect for a lazy day, when you’d give anything for a lush dessert.

Another peachy dessert l absolutely love is the Peach rice pudding, a favourite in my family. Desserts go down a treat with us, and they hardly ever survive another day. They are meant to be eaten up anyway, right?

        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.
