Peach and Apple Crumble Bake

I love to bake but the fall season really brings out the extreme baker in me with an abundance of recipes featuring peaches, apples and pumpkins, just to name a few.  I wanted something warm and comforting for a dessert this evening and after searching through my old recipes, I came across this one showcasing the beautiful flavors of apple and peach with a refreshing hint of lemon zest and warm cinnamon and nutmeg.  I’ve “tweaked” it a couple of times and came up with this as the final version:

A warm and comforting dessert for fall!

  • 3 cups sliced, peeled peaches and apples (I use 3 peaches and 1 apple)
  • 1/8 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 T. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. lemon peel
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

TOPPING:

  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 egg, lightly beaten (I lightly beat a whole egg and use approx. 1/2 -3/4 of it)
  • 1/4 c. butter, melted and cooled
  • Vanilla Ice Cream, optional

Place peaches and apples in a greased, shallow baking dish.  (I found that a glass loaf pan works well.  Perfect size and decorative.)

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, peel and cinnamon; sprinkle over the peaches.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.

Stir in the egg until the mixture resembles small, coarse crumbles.

Sprinkle over the peach and apple mixture.

Pour melted butter evenly over the coarse crumbles.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.  Serve with ice cream.  Yields 5-6 small servings.
