I have made this countless times as written and modified according to our palates and fruit on hand. Yesterday I added fresh raspberries and blueberries with the peaches. The acidity of the lemon juice and peel give it a slight tartness to balance the sweetness of the sugars. I do use only half the amounts of sugars as fresh native fruit has natural sweetness. The topping is the best part! The crunch gives texture to the soft fruit underneath. No matter what you call it, it is a bowl of deliciousness with whipped cream on top! Thanks for sharing.

I added a cup of fresh blueberries to the peaches and tossed the fruit with the lemon juice and then with the brown sugar flour and cinnamon. I did not add the zest. I added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the topping. I baked it in a Corningware baking dish. Made this for my family and son's family and got rave reviews. I will definitely make this again.

I would say this is NOT a crumble, but a cobbler as it has no oats in the topping, that is why is was like a cake - make sense?

The topping tasted like cake and not a nice crunchy crumble. It was like a cross between a cobbler and a crumble, failing at both. Why the recipe doesn’t tell you to mix the sugar/lemon into the peaches is beyond me. By not doing it the peaches were semi sweet on the top and bland on the bottom.

Very Good. Only thing I did different was to leave out the lemon peel as well. A little sweet but good.

This was DELICIOUS. I didn't change anything except I left out the lemon peel (I didn't have one at the time) and I cut the recipe in 1/4 (doing 1/4 of an egg was interesting... 1 large egg is approx 1/4C so a quarter of that would be 1 tbsp of egg which I measured out after whisking it). My husband and I ate the whole thing. Our peaches tasted so fresh, and since they weren't overly sweet, the sugar in the topping was perfect. We topped ours with cool whip. I'll definitely be making this again.

This is perfect as written. I didn't change a thing and have made it twice with fresh peaches and served it with vanilla ice cream. My company enjoyed it and so did my family. This is a keeper!

I reduced the white sugar to a half of a cup and added a half of a cup of oats like the others suggested. I was not impressed.

This is absolutely delicious! My husband and I love this recipe. The flavors of the lemon and cinnamon add so much to the peaches. I did halve the sugar in the crumble and it was perfect. I'm definitely saving this to my recipe box! Thanks for a wonderful dessert recipe.

I halved the sugar in both the top and bottom and added a few oats to the topping to increase the dry ingredients. It was excellent!
