Peach Crumble

There's a house on our block that's been vacant for two years.  It was a rental and the owners have been fixing it up to, I assume, put it on the market.  The point of my story is, there's a doughnut peach tree in the front yard.  And it's loaded with fruit.  And they're ripe.  How can a person resist that?  I honestly considered going down in the dark and loading up a bag, but instead, I walked down with the kids and asked permission to pick.  I got the go-ahead and after eating them till we were sick, I made this dessert.

I've never been a huge fan of cooked peaches.  Peach pie, peach crisp, peach cobbler.  I just prefer them fresh.  Which would explain why I have more pictures of the bowl of peaches than the actual dessert.

With that being said, this was pretty damn good.  It was worth scaling the cabinet boxes in the garage to get to the nutmeg and baking powder.  I was laughing out loud at myself and the ridiculous positions I had to get in.  And was praying I didn't fall and break my neck.  All in the name of food.  Typical.

You can get the recipe here:  Peach Crumble Dessert

Here it is coming together at my house:

And hot out of the oven:

I took it to my sister's over the weekend and we ate it at room temp, but it would have been sooo good hot. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
So for all you peach dessert lovers out there, this definitely got two thumbs up.

Please see my sidebar for the parties I link up to.


  1. That looks so very good, Mindy. I, too, like fresh peaches but I can't stand the ones that are canned. They taste slimy to me....ugh. Your crisp would soon disappear around here- xo Diana

  2. I'm the opposite,..I prefer cooked fruit though peaches are my absolute favourite fruit and if they are ripe and juicy,...mmmmmm, I can definitely get into the fresh ones. This looks super yummy. Like eat the entire thing yummy.

  3. I do not like peaches at all but I love peach cobbler/crumble ...oh and daiquiris - go figure!

  4. My daughter and I prefer them fresh, while the boys cooked, it's a house divided. But the point is, how lucky that you spotted that tree. Donut peaches are the best! I have a tree but it has yet to give me a ripe fruit. It's diseased I think. The crumble looks awesome!

  5. Yep peaches are just so beautiful! And anything crisp crumble like this makes me happy! Looks so delic!!! I usually do apples but you got me thinking peaches for sure! I can not believe people let such pretty fruit sit on a tree?!?! Good for you for taking charge! I hate seeing things go to waste!

  6. This does look SO good!! And your pictures are awesome friend!

  7. I have never been a cooked peaches fan, it is a texture issue ~ glad that you found a recipe that you and everyone else enjoyed!

  8. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I'll bet it was tasty.

  9. Mindy, this sounds absolutely delicious! Never thought to do a peach crumble - the apples aways win out, but no more...

  10. I love peaches..fresh as well as baked and yours look so delish! Your little baby is absolutely adorable:)Thanks for visiting!~Poppy
