Easy Peach Crumble with Blueberries
Warm, rich slices of juicy peach interspersed with little pops of sweet blueberries, plus a simple crumble biscuit topping. This is an easy peach crumble, that can be on the table in no time. You could even make it ahead and just pop it in the oven as you sit down to dinner.
But don't be fooled by this humble peach crumble... A simple dessert maybe yes, but by no means boring!
When this recipe for an easy peach crumble was in development here at home, I definitely had none of the usual complaints...
"Oh, we're having *insert recipe name here* again? Haven't you taken a photo of it yet?"
"It tastes good, but I'm a bit over it - can we have something else for dinner?"
Nope - none of that with this recipe!
On a side note, I know that there is hot debate over the whole crumble vs cobbler vs crisp thing. I went with crumble, because, well, the top is crumbly - so crumble it is! Makes sense to me!

Top tips for making an easy peach crumble.
- You could substitute nectarines, or other peach varieties for the yellow peaches - depending on your taste and what is available.
- The baking dish I used in the photos was 30cm x 20cm x 5cm (12" x 8" x 1.5") I wouldn't go any larger than that. Smaller is fine, anywhere down to approximately 25cm x 20cm x 6cm (9.5" x 7.5" x 2.5").
- Peeling the peaches...this is totally your choice if you do or you don't. It tastes great both ways - when the peaches are really ripe and soft they are easy to peel, so I peel them. When they are a bit firmer they are tricky to peel so I don't.
- If you are going to peel the peaches, I recommend slicing the peaches into 8 first, then peel the skin off each slice. Much easier than trying to peel the whole peach, then slice up a slippery peach!
