recipe review: peach-strawberry crumble - skinnytaste fast + slow
My job hosts a monthly Brunch in our office and I have been known to bring one particular dish - a spicy and delicious Potato and Sausage Hash (recipe coming soon! - i completely made it up one day!). For the month of January I am cooking out of my STFS (skinnytaste fast and slow) cookbook and I decided to opt for one of Gina's brunch/dessert options to bring in. I don't really eat eggs or egg dishes (I know.. I know.. I'll explain this at another time) so I selected the Peach-Strawberry Crumble. So simple and easy to make and it came out very good! (If I do say so myself.. ha!)
I was very short on time and cut just a couple of corners with making this dish - I baked it in the oven rather than cooking it in the slow cooker and I used frozen peaches and strawberries. To make it in the oven it requires just the same steps and about 1/2 of the time to bake.
✔ Cooking spray
✔ 6 yellow peaches (½-inch-thick slices)
✔ 1 cup (5 ounces) strawberries
✔ ¼ cup raw honey
✔ 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
✔ 2 teaspoons cornstarch
✔ ¾ cup quick-cooking oats
✔ ½ cup chopped roasted almonds
✔ ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
✔ 1 tablespoon flour
✔ ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
✔ 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
✔ Whipped cream, for serving (optional)
*You may also sprinkle ground cinnamon on the top if you'd like. I used lots of cinnamon and lots of butter! ;)
Lightly coat the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray.
For the filling: In a large bowl, combine the peaches, strawberries, honey, and orange juice. Sprinkle with the cornstarch and toss until coated. Transfer to the slow cooker.
For the topping: In a medium bowl, using a fork, combine the oats, almonds, brown sugar, flour, salt, and butter. Sprinkle over the fruit.
Cover and cook on low until the fruit is tender, about 3 hours.
To serve, scoop the cobbler out into 8 bowls and top with frozen yogurt or whipped cream, if desired.
If you want to bake this in the oven, set the oven at 375 degrees
and let it cook until brown at the top and bubbling - approximately 30 minutes. Enjoy!
