Peaches are a staple when it comes to summer desserts, fruit trays, and ice cream. But when they are served hot, it reminds me of comfort food that can be served year-round.

I love adding sweet and savory together. In my opinion, it’s the perfect combination. One of my most recent creations is Strawberry Shortcakes with Biscuits. Yummm!

I bet you may be wondering what the difference is between peach cobbler, peach crisp, and peach crumble. Some people use these terms interchangeably (it’s a personal preference) but there are some differences.

I’m sharing tips to help you get the best results with this recipe. If you don’t need the tips, scroll to the bottom for the full recipe, including a printable recipe card.

The Difference in Peach Cobbler, Peach Crisp, and Peach Crumble

Peach cobbler topping typically has more of a cakey-topping and texture. You spoon dollops of batter on top of the peach filling prior to baking. Some people use biscuits instead of the sweet batter topping.

A Peach crumble has a streusel topping made from butter, sugar, and flour. Some versions, like mine, include oats.

Fruit crisps can be made from many kinds of fruits and have an oat topping similar to a crumble.

Many people use peach crisp and peach crumble interchangeably. Cobblers tend to stand alone because they have that distinct topping.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the good stuff!

Peach Crumble Filling Ingredients

  • Peaches – My favorite peach variety is the freestone because the fruit comes off of the pit easier.
  • Lemon juice – fresh is best.
  • Vanilla 
  • Salt

Peach Crumble Oat Topping Ingredients

  • Oats – we’re using quick-cooking oats in this recipe.
  • Butter – use unsalted and be sure it stays chilled until ready to use.
  • Brown sugar
  • All-purpose flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg

How To Peel Peaches The Easy Way

Here’s a little hack that will come in handy when peeling peaches.

Cut an “X” in the bottom of each peach. Place whole peaches in a pot of boiling water for about 20-30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove peaches from water and transfer to an ice bath for 3-5 minutes.

Your peaches should be super easy to peel and you probably won’t even need to use a knife (the peach skins slip right off).

Can I Use Canned Peaches?

Personally I have not made this recipe with canned peaches. I’ve found canned peaches work better for recipes that don’t require heat. When baking peach crumbles and cobblers (or whatever you want to call them!), fresh, firm peaches work the best.

Tips for Making Peach Crumble with Oats

  • If your peaches aren’t sweet enough, add up to a ¼ cup of sugar.
  • If your peaches are really juicy, add a little cornstarch to thicken up the juices.

Storing

Peach crumble should be stored in the refrigerator after serving (IF there are any leftovers!) for up to 4 days. You’ll want to cover the dish to keep it from drying out.

To reheat, simply warm in the oven on 350 degrees. You can also use the microwave – warm in 15-second increments so the oats don’t become tough.

If you would like to freeze the leftovers, store in an airtight container. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

  1. I don’t have fresh peaches I only have canned. I noticed you said you’ve never made it with canned. Does anyone know how I would make it with canned peaches?
