This brown butter peach berry crumble features baked summer fruit under a brown butter brown sugar crumble!


For the crumble:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon table salt

For the filling:

  • 2 cups peeled, pitted, and chopped peaches (from about 2 large ripe peaches)
  • 2 cups hulled and chopped strawberries 
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Pinch of table salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 and lightly grease an 8” or 9” baking dish. Begin to prepare the crumble by browning the butter. Cube the butter into tablespoon-sized pieces and place it into a small, heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Stir regularly as the butter melts, bubbles, and begins to foam. Continue stirring continuously and looks for small, amber-colored flecks begin to form on the bottom of the pan. Once the butter is fragrant and golden brown, remove from heat immediately and pour into a large heat-safe bowl. Stir in the sugar and add the remaining ingredients, stirring just until combined into thick clumps. Place in the fridge to cool briefly while you assembly the filling. 
  2. Toss together the filling ingredients and pour into the prepared baking dish. Crumble the topping over top of the fruit and bake in the preheated oven until the crumble is golden and the fruit beneath is bubbling, about 25-26 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving with ice cream or whipped cream.
