Baked Peaches with Crumb Topping

Sweet, juicy baked peaches are made even better when filled with a buttery, crispy crumb topping. They are best served hot, right out of the oven with with ice cream or whipped cream!

Baked peaches are a perfect way to use fresh peaches when they are in season.

Like peaches and cream, the peach flavor shines in baked peaches because the peach itself is the main focus of the dessert.

What Do You Need to Make Baked Peaches?

Peaches sliced in half

  • Fresh Ripe Peaches – Look for peaches that are soft to the touch but not mushy. They should be able to hold their shape while baking and not fall apart.
  • A Knife to Cut the Peaches – I suggest a small paring knife.
  • Crumb Topping – My crumb topping always contains oats. Technically, it’s the addition of oats that turns a crumble into a crisp. Oats crisp up a crumb topping. When I make crumb topping for my baked peaches, I always add cinnamon and ginger. Those spices go really well with peaches.

Mixing crumb topping

  • Something to Bake the Peaches In – This could be almost anything. I’ve baked peaches in an 8″ square baking dish and in ramekins. You could also bake them in cupcake tins.

How to Prepare a Peach to Bake

  1. To prepare a peach for baking, first cut the peach around the middle and twist to separate the two halves.
  2. Next, using a paring knife, pry the pit out of the half that contains it. You may have to gently cut closely around the pit to help remove it.
  3. Finally, because we will be stuffing the peaches, use a small scoop or a melon baller to scoop away some of the center of each peach, making room for the crumb filling.

  1. Bake for 25-30 minutes. To test for doneness, look for the crumb topping to have browned and for the peach to feel nice and soft when you poke it with a toothpick.

How to Serve Baked Peaches

Baked peaches are so much better when served hot! I suggest serving with vanilla ice cream or chantilly cream (sweet whipped cream).

They are also great drizzled with caramel sauce.

Best Tips for Making Baked Peaches

Baked peach cut open

  • Choose the best-tasting peaches. If your peach doesn’t taste great before you bake it, it won’t be the best baked peach, either.
  • Experiment with other spices in the crumb topping. I use cinnamon and ginger, but cardamom, allspice, and cloves would also be wonderful.
  • Put the peaches in the oven while you are eating dinner so they are ready just in time for dessert.

Can You Reheat Baked Peaches?

Store uneaten baked peaches in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and reheat in the microwave for about 30 seconds each before serving.
