Brown sugar and almond peach crumble
preheat oven to 375
The filling:Peel and slice enough peaches to fill a square baking pan about halfway. I used about 4 or 5.
Toss the fruit with a tablespoon of flour, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and a teaspoon of almond extract. You can do this right in the pan to save a dish. Mix it all up with your hands.
Mix 1 cup of flour, 5 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/2 cup sliced almonds, a pinch of salt, a dash of cinnamon, a dash of freshly grated nutmeg, and 6 tablespoons of softened butter with your hands until the mixture is a crumbly dough.
Crumble the dough over the top of the peaches, and bake for about 40 minutes until browned and bubbly.
I recommend this for breakfast with a splash of cream. Did I hear a collective gasp? What do you think you're getting with your morning toast and jam? Flour, butter, sugar and fruit?
I rest my case.
