Ingredients and substitutions for Peach Crumble
- Peaches: Fresh peaches are used here that still have some firmness, however, you could most definitely substitute with frozen or canned peaches, but would recommend using less sugar. If you want to use other stone fruit here, plums and apricots would work well alongside the peaches.
- Sugar: Light brown sugar is used in both the peaches and crumble to create a deep warmth to the overall dish that helps draw moisture and create a juicy fruit base and works great along the spices. Dark brown sugar would likely add a stronger caramelized flavor to the dish.
- Lemon juice: The juice helps draw out the moisture in the peaches and add a depth to the sweetness with it’s punch of acidity.
- Flour: Plain or all purpose flour is best to create a nice light crumb to our crumble, though you won’t work the flour much so bread flour, at a pinch, would work here.
- Oats: Simple rolled oats were used, however, you could try quick oats or steel oats though it might result in a different texture with the crumble.
- Ground cinnamon and nutmeg: Ground cinnamon and nutmeg add a depth of flavor to our filling and compliment the sweet peaches perfectly, however, you can omit one or both, if you prefer.
- Butter: Unsalted butter was used, though salted would work well here, simply omit the salt from the crumble if you used salted butter. I have not tried this dish with non dairy butter or coconut oil so cannot speak to what the dish would be like with either.
