Peach Berry Crumble

 Let the fresh fruits of summer make your desserts shine with this easy Peach Berry Crumble.

Peach Berry Crumble

Summer has officially arrived! The kids just finished school and summer vacation begins today. I adore having Greta and Charlie home and purposefully have not scheduled much for the kids this summer. But let’s be realistic; it is always an adjustment for everyone. Gone is the structure of the day and enter the laziness of summer, which is good and bad all wrapped up into one. And that’s where simple desserts like this Peach Berry Crumble make my life a whole lot easier.

Now I admit that my family is a little spoiled. We eat dessert every night. Granted, some nights it is a scoop of ice cream or a few cookies, but the “something sweet” is always expected and is always there. When I stumbled upon this unique Peach Berry Crumble recipe in a Southern Living Magazine, I knew it would be making an appearance sometime soon. The crumble topping is mixed together with a fork in a single bowl, including the egg (no that isn’t a typo), is spread on top of the fresh peaches and berries and then baked to crunchy perfection. I used ramekins to make serving sizes easy peasy, but you can also bake it in an 8 x 8 baking dish if you want. Don’t have all the berries on hand I used? No worries, just sub in the same amounts of whatever is in your fridge. (Bonus points if you just picked them this morning!)

Peach Berry Crumble showcases the abundance of fresh fruit available but doesn’t take a ton of time – a real summer lifesaver. Who wants to be spending hours in the kitchen when the sun is shining and the kids are home? I know I don’t. I love simple dishes that make me look like I have my act together a whole lot more than I do some days. Doesn’t everyone need a go-to summer dessert like that?

  2. Wow! I was just looking at your recipe and you put an egg+egg yolk in your crumble topping? Super interesting! That must make it a little cake-ier, right? Very cool! I have to try this :)

    • I know, Janice! It took me a minute to digest it too, but it’s delicious!

  3. I love crumbles in any way, is it apple, pears, berry, rhubarb or anything else. It’s a no fuss, kind of healthy and delicious dessert. I’ll definitely try this egg version for the crumbs. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Have a great da, Lisa. :)

  4. I’m so happy that berry season is here! I love making crisps and crumbles but apples just get boring after September.

    This looks awesome and I love that you made them as individual servings!
