Peach Crumble Recipe

peach crumble recipeOnce upon a time my husband expressed to me that he likes cobbler.  I excitedly prepared one and he liked it, but it wasn’t quite what he had in mind.  It wasn’t his mama’s.

So I went straight to the source and got her recipe.  Well, it turns out she doesn’t really make a cobbler, it’s a crumble.  Cobblers, crumbles, and crisps are all a little different.  Here’s a little breakdown.

  • cobbler- fresh fruit with biscuits on top
  • crumble- fresh fruit with an oat-based streusel on top
  • crisp- fresh fruit with a streusel on top (no oats)

If you want a really in depth explanation check out this article.

Back to the matter at hand… I recently saw some beautiful peaches at the store and procured my mother-in-law’s recipe, which I’m sharing with you.

(first set-bottom)

  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons of flour
  • 3/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 6 cups of sliced peaches

(second set- topping)

  • 1 1/2 cups of dry oats
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup of butter
  • 3/8 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3/8 teaspoon of baking powder

Combine the first set of ingredients (sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, & peaches) and place into a greased casserole.

You can also make this using apples.  In fact, the original recipe called for apples but I was beguiled by the beautiful peaches.

So, which camp are you in?  Cobbler, Crumble, or Crisp?

Lol, I think a lot of people prefer crumbles but I'm a cobbler girl. Well, really I'm a chocolate girl, but in the crumble/crisp/cobbler world it'd be cobbler.

Good Morning Cat! Yum! This recipe calls for a trip to the Farmers Market this weekend, and you know after all of the years of baking I don't think I knew the difference in a crumble or cobbler myself. Thank you for clarifying the differences. I so appreciate your visit this morning too, and it is wonderful to meet you! Have a Lovely day~ Jemma
