Skillet Bourbon, Peach and Blueberry Crumble

Bourbon, Peach and Blueberry Crumble is a celebration of summer fruit in a skillet!

This crumble is easy to make using juicy summer peaches at their peak of freshness!

This recipe calls for 1/4 cup of bourbon (2 ounces) so a mini bottle is just the right size. Bourbon adds a depth of flavor, vanilla, caramel and oak, rather than booziness to the fruit. You can substitute orange juice for an alcohol free alternative if you prefer.

You can make individual desserts using mini skillets or one large skillet to serve a crowd.  

This recipe serves 4 - 6.

Serve with vanilla ice cream!

For the filling:
  • 6 cups sliced peaches (about 5 peaches)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) bourbon
  • *1/4 cup sugar (you may need to add more depending on the sweetness of your peaches and tartness of your blueberries)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the crumble topping:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the peaches, blueberries, bourbon, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla. Mix well to coat the peaches and blueberries and set aside.

In a second large bowl, make the topping by combining the flour, oats, sugar and salt. Add the cold butter cubes and cut the butter into the flour with a pastry blender or pulse dry ingredients with butter together in food processor. Mix until the texture is coarse and clumps in your palm when you squeeze a handful. Add heavy cream and mix just until the dough comes together a bit more.

Pour the filling into a 12-inch cast-iron skillet (I used two 6-inch skillets), then spoon the topping mixture evenly over the filling. (I had enough topping left over for another 6-inch skillet that I put in a freezer bag.)

Place skillet(s) onto a baking sheet to keep oven clean and to catch any fruit that bubbles over. Bake crumble uncovered in a 375 degrees F oven, 30 to 40 minutes. Crumble is done when the fruit is bubbling around the edges and the topping is golden in color.
  • Make in 9 x 13 pan instead of skillet if desired. Spray with nonstick spray before adding filling.

    It would be very helpful if you did the following 1: cooking time in recipe

    2: directions on how to make the crumble 3: how long to bake if made in a 9x13 glass dish. 4: for how long should the fruit mixture be set aside. Thanks a bunch

      Really? She has all the directions there and I would imagine you set the fruit mixture aside until you finish making the crumble!:/
