  • Preheat oven to 375°. Place peaches in a greased shallow 2-1/2-qt. Dutch oven, cast iron pan or 2-1/2-qt. ovenproof baking dish. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, zest and cinnamon; sprinkle over the peaches.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Cinnamon comes in two basic types: Ceylon and cassia. Ceylon cinnamon’s delicate, complex flavor is ideal for ice creams and simple sauces. The spicy, bolder cassia cinnamon (often labeled simply as cinnamon) is preferred for baking.
  • Go for freshly squeezed lemon juice when preparing this recipe. Bottled lemon juice, which is from concentrate, won’t provide the same bright, fresh flavor.

      I made this in a deep 10 inch pie plate. It tasted very good. Make sure you cook it thoroughly. I think mine was slightly underdone in the middle even though it seemed done…brown and firm. It is an easy recipe and I will be making it again.

      So good! I made this for dessert last night, and my family really liked it. Easy and delicious! I'll be making this again.

      This crumble is absolutely delicious. Made it today. The only changes I made were minor: mixed dry ingredients together and then tossed with peaches rather than sprinkling over peaches, and added butter right into crumble topping mixture rather than pouring on top. Lovely, crunchy, buttery topping. Like this so much better than the cobble recipes I've tried. Winner.

      I didn't have quite enough peaches, so I added some blueberries...other than that, made according to the recipe. It was a hit with my crowd!

      I have made this countless times as written and modified according to our palates and fruit on hand. Yesterday I added fresh raspberries and blueberries with the peaches. The acidity of the lemon juice and peel give it a slight tartness to balance the sweetness of the sugars. I do use only half the amounts of sugars as fresh native fruit has natural sweetness. The topping is the best part! The crunch gives texture to the soft fruit underneath. No matter what you call it, it is a bowl of deliciousness with whipped cream on top! Thanks for sharing.

      I added a cup of fresh blueberries to the peaches and tossed the fruit with the lemon juice and then with the brown sugar flour and cinnamon. I did not add the zest. I added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the topping. I baked it in a Corningware baking dish. Made this for my family and son's family and got rave reviews. I will definitely make this again.

      I would say this is NOT a crumble, but a cobbler as it has no oats in the topping, that is why is was like a cake - make sense?
