Peach Crumble

Hello strawberry shortcakes, how are you all today? I am just lovely, had a busy but fun day at work and have just eaten a delicious spaghetti bolognese cooked by my own fair hands! Today's post is another foodie one; after making my Christmas cookies in half term last week, I was inspired to try another new recipe, peach crumble, and I want to share it with you all today : )

1) Get your ingredients ready, you will need: 6 peaches/nectarines, 1 lemon, cooking butter, salt, caster sugar, cinnamon, light brown sugar, plain flour, baking powder and one egg. Pre- heat the oven to 200 degrees.
2) Peel the nectarines/peaches (I used my vegetable peeler as I find this easier!), and then cut into similar sized slices. Lay across the bottom of the foil tray. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the peaches and a sprinkling of the lemon zest. Mix one quarter of a cup of brown sugar with 3 tablespoons of flour, 1 teaspoon of cinammon and sprinkle over the peaches.
3) Mix one cup of flour with one cup of caster sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, a pinch of salt and one teaspoon of cinnamon. Add the beaten egg to the mix and stir until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. It may be necessary to get your hands into the mix (remember, remove wedding rings first!) as it is really important to make sure the mixture does resemble crumble, without any obvious lumps.
4) Sprinkle the crumble mix evenly over the peaches. Melt half a cup of butter in a pan and drizzle over the top and then cook in the oven for around 30 minutes.
5) Ta-da! The finished product should look lightly browned on top. Serve with custard or ice cream and enjoy!
 A really tasty and comforting dessert in 5 easy steps! I have to confess I had never made a crumble before and was very impressed with the end result. The crumble was delicious and the peaches were soft and tasty. In future, I am going to try apple or pear crumble as hubby prefers those fruits, and perhaps even blackberry and raspberry!

Hope you are all well, more soon XOXO
