"This recipe is great and not to sweet! I know some people were against using one cup of sugar as I read the reviews but the topping mixture ratio with one cup of flour wasn't creating a great crumble. Definitely something you can whip up quickly with canned peaches but will take a little more time when slicing and peeling whole peaches. All in all a great dessert!"

"This peach crumble is great! My family asks me to make it all the time. Sometimes I resent and ask why? (that's just because I'm lazy and not much of a cook). And they say "Because it's so good!" It's the best with fresh peaches. I've made it with canned and it's good, but not the same. If you've got a sweet tooth like me, try doubling the recipe for the brown sugar part (excluding peaches). A great dessert and a family favorite of ours!"

"My neighbor brought over 5 large ripe peaches from a farm stand so I made this last night. It was delicious. I only used 1/2 the amount of granulated sugar and butter suggested and it came out perfect. I split the recipe between 2 loaf pans and baked for 42 minutes until top was brown. The topping was nice and crunchy. I had a piece cold for breakfast and it was great."

"This was DELICIOUS!! I skipped the lemon peel, and also added a teaspoon of good vanilla to the topping mixture. I used about 1/2 cup sugar in the topping, it doesn't need a full cup. Other than that, I made it as directed. This will become a staple in my house for sure! Melt the butter before you start the recipe, although I don't know why it needed to cool ahead of time as the recipe said to do. Btw, to peel the skin: I blanched the peaches in a pot of boiling water for 30-40 seconds (they were large sized peaches) and then plunged into cold water afterward. The skin came off smoothly at that point."

"This is comparable to an English crumble except we don't use egg and we mix the butter with the flour and sugar etc to make it "breadcrumbey" for our topping.

Oatmeal isn't used as crumbles in England at all so that was a very alien innovation for me the first time I moved here!
I loved this recipe but had it with a hot custard sauce as we do in England instead of the ice cream and it was just too moreish!"
