Whenever peaches are in season I always plan to cook something with them. More often than not though I just end up eating the peaches from the fruit bowl because they’re irresistible. Not this time! My peach and cherry crumble is so deliciously summery and the colour of the fruit once it’s baked is divine. I’m so glad some of the peaches survived to make this crumble.
The delicate white flesh of the peaches combines so well with the vibrant red of the cherries. As the fruit was really ripe I only added a small amount of honey as that’s all it needed. Don’t skimp on the lemon, it brings a much needed sharpness to the crumble. We enjoyed this as it is but it would be even better with a dribble of double cream.
