I love fruit crumbles! They are easy to make, forgiving, and always a popular dessert. You can top them with whipped cream, ice cream, or some milk. And, you can easily warm them up the next day: they taste just as good as freshly baked.
I’ve written about crumbles, cobblers, and crisps before, and you can check out one of my earlier posts, here, to learn the difference. Because I love oats, I always make crumbles. And, because I always seem to have overripe fruits hanging around in the summer, like peaches and blueberries, this blueberry peach crumble is on repeat at our summer BBQs.
The thing about adding blueberries to a crumble or any pie is the beauty of the dark purple caramelized fruit that bubbles around the edge of the dish. It spells summer. Even my youngest guests love watching the fruit bubble on the sides of the baking dish!
Because the best part of any crumble is the thick oat topping, I’ve adjusted the measurements of my original recipe to make a generous topping. I hope you enjoy making it.
You can include any combinations of fruits. For example, I’ve tried peaches, blueberries, and strawberries. I’ve made apples and pears before (more apples than pears for sure, though). I’ve made strawberries and peaches only. Blackberries and raspberries would be good with the peaches as well. And, you can use nectarines instead of peaches. Go through your fridge and see what you have.
I’d love to hear what combinations of fruits you have used in crumbles!
