Baked Peaches with Crumble Topping is a simple way to enjoy fresh peaches using an easy recipe. This recipe makes enough for four servings, but it can be doubled easily.
This is one dessert that is simple, but elegant at the same time. The peaches hold up nicely after being baked and the crumble topping gives a lovely sweet crunch to the whole thing.
You can serve this without the caramel, but I would suggest that you serve it drizzled over the top. The caramel helps put this dessert over the top.
- The peaches should be firm but ripe. If you use peaches that are not ripe the recipe will not turn out as well.
- To cut the peach in half, hold the peach vertical with the stem on top. Cut around the whole peach.
Take the peach in the palms of your hands and twist gently until the peach separates.
- If the pit does not come out easily, take a spoon and scoop it out.
- Divide the crumble into four parts. Top the peach with the crumble, you will want to gently press the crumble on top of the peach.
- To check if the peach is done, use a wooden pick, and insert it into the peach if it goes in easily the peach is done. The crumble should be browned lightly.
- The size of the peaches may change the baking time.
- Ice cream or sweetened whip cream goes well with these baked peaches.
- Leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator. The peaches should be stored separately from the caramel.
- You can reheat it in the microwave to the desired temperature. Do short intervals, so as not to overheat.
