Peach Berry Crumble

This recipe came to me compliments of my friend, Lenora. It's actually more of a cobbler than a crisp...and most colourful with the peaches and berries. I used blackberries and raspberries together with peaches...since that is what is in the freezer. I've had it with a combination of peaches, cranberries and blueberries...and it was equally good.

Topping:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

Method:

  1. Combine flour and sugar.
  2. Cut in butter until crumbly.
  3. Stir in beaten egg and mix well.
  4. Set aside.

Fruit Mixture:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 (16 0z.) frozen sliced peaches (or use sliced canned peaches)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. In small saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar and cornstarch. Add water. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and boils. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract.
  3. In ungreased 1 1/2 quart baking dish, combine peaches and berries.
  4. Stir in hot sauce.
  5. Sprinkle with topping mixture.
  6. Bake at 400°F for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Serve warm...with whipped cream or ice-cream if desired.
  8. Serves 9.

Enjoy!

  4. I often make a crisp/crumble late in the evening, when my kids are coming home from their sports or youth events. They are always "starved" again at that hour. I will try this one next time. I love the almond flavour idea. Intersting that there is egg mixed in with the crumbs mixture. I sure have lately been enjoying "europe's best" brand of frozen fruits that I find in my grocery store.

  8. I don't have frozen or canned peaches, but I think I will try frozen mangoes instead...The rest are there...and a dose of ice-cream.
