Peach Nectarine Crumble

Summer is finally here. Even thought it officially starts tomorrow, I have been in a summer mood for a few weeks now. My vegetables are planted, the flower bed is full of blossoms and jackets are no longer required. I love making crumble in the summer. Peaches and nectarines are readily available and they give this easy dessert such a wonderful flavor. You can also use berries or apples in this recipe, it is very versatile.

Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart

Filling Ingredients

  • 6 cups of fruit (I used nectarines and peaches), cut into slices
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Topping Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. To prepare the filling, add the fruit, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch and salt to a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Place the filling into an 8 inch square baking dish
  3. In your mixer bowl beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Using your hands, mix in the flour and salt until crumbly pieces form.
  4. Spread the topping over the filling and bake for 40 – 50 mins (tent the baking dish with tin foil after 30 mins of baking), until the center is bubbling. Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.

Enjoy!
