Peach Crumble Cake

I was actually planning on making a peach crumble the other day, but then afternoon cake for a visitor was required and this arose from the crumble plans!

I’ve been blogging for almost three years now and as I mentioned on Tuesday I have just topped 700 posts! So please help yourselves to a slice and celebrate with me, and thanks for being out there everyone! πŸ™‚

Peach Crumble Cake

PeachCrumbleCake3

  • 225g SR flour
  • 50g ground hazelnuts
  • 50g oats
  • 1tbsp cornflour
  • 100g sugar
  • 25g brown sugar
  • 175g butter

Grease and flour a 9-inch/23cm square cake tin. Preheat oven to 180Β°C/350Β°F.

Mix all the dry ingredients together and then rub in the butter with fingertips until nice and crumbly. Mix in about 1-2 tbsps water and put a third of the mixture in a separate bowl: this is the crumble topping. Press the rest firmly into your prepared tin. Chill both the base and the topping while you prepare the fruit filling.

For the filling:

  • approx. 700gΒ  prepared peaches (this was 6 large ones for me), diced but not peeled
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 75g brown sugar

Mix the filling ingredients together and spread over the base. Sprinkle the lumpy crumble topping over the top and bake for 45 minutes or until lovely and brown on top and bubbling.

Leave to cool in the pan a little before slicing, and then allow to cool completely before removing from the pan.

Deliciously sweet and sticky too, I’d recommend this cake with a blob of cream or ice cream. I bet it’s good served warm too!

  1. This looks very delicious Cathy! I am going to give this a try, I love eating peach plain, in pies, cakes, cobblers, etc. but I also like making peach ice cream this time of year from our fresh picked locally grown.

    • Wow, locally grown peaches! Our neighbour has a tree and gave us some last year, but they were a bit small and hard…. the season just isn’t long enough here. Peach ice cream sounds very nice.

  2. Congratulations! That is a lot of posts! I adore peaches, but sadly my peach tree has the tiniest fruits imaginable. I shall aspire to peach crumble cake next year. I look forward to your next 700 posts.

    • The summer needs to be really long here too, or they just don’t ripen. Hope you get some next year though. The ones in our stores are from France or Italy, and this year there has been a trend for the flat ones too.

  3. Sweet and sticky! Sounds so good. The peach crop has been very good this year, so this summer we ate lots of them. I never got around to making a peach cobbler, but they were good simply sliced and served plain, even better with homemade vanilla ice cream.

      • Just to clarify, I don’t grow peaches but North Carolina where I live, and also South Carolina and Georgia are U.S. states that grow lots of peaches. My first trip to the city of Atlanta, Georgia, when I was about 11, was fun and I remember thinking every street in Atlanta must be named Peachtree. Seemed to be dozens of them.

  4. I think I need to take a drive out to the farm tomorrow…. In my opinion tree ripened peaches juicy enough to run down your chin are one of the best things of summer!

  5. I’m addicted to all types of crumbles, Cathy. They’re impossible to resist…must be my German roots, haha. Once more I regret not living closer to you but I’m sure you’ll manage to eat this delicious cake without me πŸ™‚

  6. Congratulations on the 700 – that’s quite some milestone! Peaches never seem to last beyond being eaten as they are here… maybe if I hide a couple of them away there will be peach cake to enjoy.

  7. Congratulations on that 700th post Cathy. That takes some doing. Your celebratory cake sounds and looks most delicious. Thanks for the virtual slice πŸ™‚

  8. Now this is the second peaches post I’ve read this morning.. I’ve got to get to the market and find me some of those!! Congratulations on your blogging milestone! I wish all the best for the next 700 posts! I love visiting here and being inspired by your photos and writing:) xx

  9. I’m so impressed, Cathy. You are such a consistent and thoughtful blog post-er. Great work! And the peach crumble cake looks delicious and perfect for summer.
