Peach Oat Crumble

While I was staying with my mother over Christmas, I made a Peach Oat Crumble from this recipe.

The inspiration to make this came from the abundance of stone fruit in the house that was going to be wasted if I didn't intervene.  The main problem is that over Christmas, we have so much food that the good stuff like fruit is cast aside for puddings, pies and roasts.

This crumble, which I made with nectarines and peaches, saved the fruit.  The crumbs mixed through the fruit are all the sweetness that it needs, and the crumb on top adds a textural change from the soft, juicy fruit beneath. It was just perfect served warm with icecream.

My very fussy brother actually ate this crumble, which is a testament to how good it is.

I love peach crumble - we are enjoying apricots while we can and some plums - but this makes me want some peaches

I love the idea of using stone fruit up this way. What a delicious summery twist on crumble.

There is so much stonefruit around at the moment! I just bought a few kilos and I'll keep this in mind if I have extra :)

Oh, gosh, you have me yearning for summer and ripe, juicy peaches. This is the perfect recipe to showcase their sweetness!
