Apple Peach Crumble - A warm sweet apple peach filling and a crunchy crumbling topping. This is a perfect dessert. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and you’ve got a real crowd-pleaser.
Apple Peach Crumble
A crumble is nothing more than a delicious stew of fruit topped with a sweet crumb layer. You can vary in fruits (plums, cherries, apples, pears, peaches, and so on), but also with the ingredients in the crumble layer.
And adding oatmeal to the top layer becomes crunchy, creamy, and sweet—a nice dessert to end a delicious barbecue or summer dinner.
Serve the crumble with a scoop (vanilla) of ice cream or vanilla custard. That really makes a delicious dessert.
What do you need for Peach and Apple Crisp?
To prepare this Apple Peach Crumble, you need the following ingredients. You can find the correct amounts in the recipe card at the bottom of the blog:
- Apples - Take sweet apples like Jonagold, Elstar, or Pink Lady.
- Peaches - Use fresh peaches, skin, and pit removed and sliced into cubes. Or take canned peaches, as I did. Both will do the trick.
- Peach juice - When using canned peaches, use some peach juice for stewing the fruit. If you’re using fresh peaches, use an equal amount of apple juice.
- Flour - This recipe uses all-purpose flour.
- Butter - Use unsalted butter. The butter will melt and will make the crumble crisp and creamy.
- Sugar - Regular sugar
- Oats - Use four tablespoons of oatmeal. This gives extra depth to this dessert and becomes crunchy when baked.

- Peel the apples and remove the core.2 apples
- Cut the apple into small cubes and put them in the oven dish.2 apples
- Slice the peaches into small cubes.2 peaches

- Top the fruit mixture of the oven dish with the topping.
- Bake another 30 minutes in the oven.
- Make-ahead Refrigerator (unbaked) - Slice the apples in cubes and put them in lemon water for a few minutes, so they won’t discolor. Add the peaches and juice. Cover and store for up to two hours in the fridge. Prepare the crumble topping, and store that separately from the fruit in the refrigerator. Spread the topping just before baking on the apple peach crumble
- Freezer (unbaked) - Prepare it, but don’t bake it. Put it in the oven dish, wrap it into two layers of plastic foil, and then in a freezer bag. You can store it for up to 1 month. After that, you can bake it directly from frozen (increase the baking time to 40 minutes and cover the dish for the last 10 minutes with aluminum foil).
- Baked - Don’t store baked apple peach crumble. The topping will become soggy, and that’s not very delicious.
