Peachy Keen

Hi hello sweetie pie. So doing these posts are really hard. I’m on a sugar and carb detox and the problem obviously is that everything I make is loaded in sugar and carbs. I just want you to know, I am literally delaying my summer body for you, I hope you appreciate is.

Ok, enough about me and my smoking hot bod. Today I present to you… a Peach and Raspberry crumble. Oh yes boo, I shit you not, this here thang is crazy delicious and hella easy to make. The inspo behind this was I had a little dinner party at my house and I needed to make something that would warm the icy hearts. Hearts have been sufficiently warmed.

Say hello to this peachy delight.

Making it

For the filling:

  • Preheat oven at 175 degrees C
  • Mix all filling ingredients together and place in baking dish

For the crumble:

  • In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until butter is pale and fluffy
  • Sift dry ingredients and mix together until fully incorporated. It will not be smooth but will rather resemble the texture of oats
  • Sprinkle the crumble mix over the peaches and raspberries in baking dish and bake for 40 to 50 minutes and center bubbles.
  • Allow to cool and serve, with or without whipped cream

Eating it

First of all, I am so sorry for these shitty ass photos. I was trying to be the host with the most and between pouring drinks, clearing plates and trying to serve a warm peach crumble at 9:25 at night, quality photos had to take a back seat.

I am proud of myself for two reasons. One, for hosting my first real big girl dinner party. Two, because I baked something that was pretty cheap and easy to make. It’s super awesome for a chilly night to warm your belly but not too stogy and heavy. Balance.

The sugar and peaches add a lot of sugar and it is easy for this to become a mess. The addition of raspberries add zest to balance the sweetness and the spices, well, the spices make it exciting. Aint no lame bakes in this house. Of my house guests who ate it, my bestie hates baked fruit and is not a human we will preserve, I had a few seconds and really everyone liked it. If I wasn’t on a diet I would have had a second helping.

If you don’t want/have raspberries you can simply have the peaches, just add two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, none of that bottled shit.

Yea bayps, this was super easy. Let’s go do this thing.
