For the crumb topping

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash of ground nutmeg
  • dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter , diced into small chunks

For the Peach filling

  • 3 1/2 pounds fresh peaches (about 6-8) peeled, cored and sliced about 3/4in thick
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
  • dash of cinnamon


  • Add the sliced peaches to a medium size bowl.
  •  Add 1/4 cup sugar and toss to coat. 
  • Allow peaches to sit for about 20 minutes, to allow the sugar to pull some of the juice out of them.
  • Meanwhile, make the crumb topping by combining all ingredients. 
  • Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles small crumbs. Refrigerate the mixture until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Drain the peaches, reserving the peach juice, and placing the peaches in a large bowl. 
  • Measure out 1/4 cup of the peach juice and add it to a small bowl (you can discard the rest, or drink it because it's delicious!). 
  • Stir in the flour, lemon juice, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. 
  • Pour mixture over peaches and toss to combine. 
  • Pour peaches into a 8x8'' or similar size dish. 
  • Sprinkle crumb topping evenly over the top. 
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and top is set. 
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. 
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
