Guest Post: Peach Crumble for One from The Avid Appetite

Hi guys! Have I got a treat for you today! My friend, Rachel who writes over at the blog The Avid Appetite was kind enough to share with you all a great recipe for Peach Crumble {one of my all time favorites!}. Enjoy this one guys and we’ll be back to regular programming on Friday!

Hi everyone! I’m Rachel. I blog about all things food over at The Avid Appetite and all things life over on The Peach & The Pit. I came across Lauren’s fantastic blog a couple of months ago and was instantly over the moon for her unbelievable recipes and truly lovely photos. I’m so happy that she invited me to guest post!

There’s something you should know about my life. My husband isn’t a dessert lover.

Wait, that’s an understatement. He doesn’t really eat dessert at all. Which leaves me scrambling for my own desserts…just about all the time. When peach season arrived, I cooked up this peach crumble for one. Then I did a happy dance and maybe even shed a tear of joy. It’s that good. It’s buttery and fruity and just about one of the best things I’ve ever made. Or eaten. Juicy peaches, a sweet crumbly topping and cool, thick whipped cream make this dessert one that I’m happy to keep all to myself. You’ll understand when you give it a try. Like tonight.

Peach Crumble For One
Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

Ingredients:
1 ripe peach, peeled & sliced
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp whole wheat pastry flour (or flour of your choice)
1 Tbsp old fashioned oats
1 Tbsp butter, cold & cut into pieces
pinch of salt
cooking spray
whipped cream (not optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a ramekin or other small oven safe dish with cooking spray (I use Baker’s Joy with flour). Layer the sliced peaches in the ramekin. Sprinkle the granulated sugar over the top of the peaches and set aside. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, flour, oats and salt. With your fingers, mix in the pieces of butter until the entire mixture is moist. Spread over the peaches. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve with whipped cream.

So there you have it. An easy peasy delicious dessert for one. I bet it would be equally as fantastic with cherries, berries, apples or plums! I’m off to try them now…

Question of the day: What is your favorite way to do dessert for one?

    This is such a great idea, especially since I could handle most of a big peach crumble on my own if I didn’t have a husband to share with!

      Isn’t it though! So smart! I never think to just make desserts for one.

    I’d love to make this for my peach-loving husband! (I can’t stand them, so this dessert for one would be really useful around here!) You have such a darling blog, Rachel. Glad to see you over here!

    Lauren or Rachel, I would LOVE for one or both of you to do a guest post on my blog. Also, this dessert looks delicious. Peach cobbler is one of my favorites and this seems similar

      My husband hates whipped cream. Sometimes, I don’t understand him….

    Ohh, this is so great!! I love desserts that are portioned for one–they make me feel so much better about indulging my sweet tooth. :) I will definitely be trying this with apples or cherries very soon!
