Flavor From Scratch: Peach & Blueberry Crumble for Two


Peach & Blueberry Crumble for Two

This one was inspired by my garden. My teeny tiny garden that doesn't get any sun because of the massive maple trees we have in both our front and backyard. I love the shade from the trees...do not love that I have about one square foot of sun in my yard to try to plant the many fruits, vegetables, and herbs I want to plant.

However, even with sun at a premium in our yard I DID actually produce the herbs that went into this delicious crumble! We also do have a peach tree and blueberry bushes (see picture above). Note that I said "inspired by" when I started this story because as you can see, there are no actual peaches on the tree. Also, the blueberries you see in the picture are THE blueberries on the bushes we have. I ate one. In fact I ate the blue one you see there. Not even good. It was such a sad moment in my life. I think I need some help in the blueberry arena. Any suggestions, let me know. Anyways, the peaches and blueberries had to come from the store if you couldn't gather that from my ramblings. Luckily they were both in season!

The peach tree, despite being peachless, was actually started from a peach pit! My husband's grandma started it a few years back and gave it to us to plant in our yard. The tree grows like crazy! It's a little lopsided but it's wonderful. Travis already told me that we are digging it up and taking it with us when we move someday. I'm totally cool with that. Someday, maybe there will even be peaches! Wouldn't that be great? I think so. 

This crumble is kind of a mix of many crumbles I've made. Not too sweet and the herbs make you stop for a minute and ponder what might be making that delicious combination of flavors. It can be our little secret. But you can also share the secret. It's really up to you. I wouldn't have shared this recipe if I really wanted it a secret. Either way, I hope you enjoy this little sweet treat perfect for two!

prep time: 10 minutes, cook time: 18-20 minutes
serves: 2 people

Fruit mixture:
  • 1 heaping cup of peaches (about 1 large peach)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint leaves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil, minced
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons flour
  • pinch of salt
Crumble Topping:
  • 1/4 cup oats (old-fashioned)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Mix together fruit mixture ingredients in a medium sized bowl. The flour should just coat the fruit to help make a thicker syrup. Use 1-2 tablespoons depending on how wet the fruit you use is.
  3. Place the fruit mixture into 2 small ramekins. I filled mine up most of the way with fruit.
  4. Mix together the crumble topping ingredients until the butter is mostly incorporated with pea size bits remaining. I find it easiest to use my hands for this.
  5. Place crumble on top of fruit mixture in ramekins. I went all the way to the top, but do not push the crumble down too much.
  6. Place ramekins on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil (to help with drips) and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling and the crumble is lightly browned.

You can really use any fruit with this recipe. When trying to figure out how much fruit to use, I will often put the fruit in the ramekins as I am cutting it up then transfer it back to a bowl to add the other ingredients. This way I am sure I have the exact right amount! If you are making more of this recipe you can certainly use an 8x8" pan (or any size pan)! When cooking, look for a bubbling fruit mixture and lightly browned top to tell when it is finished.

I LOVE that the peach tree came from a pit at Grandma's house! I may have to try that.
Your photography is just so crisp that my taste buds are on high alert!

I hope someday it produces fruit! Even if it doesn't it's a nice little tree!
