PEACH & CINNAMON CRUMBLE SQUARES

CRUMBLE BARS PESCHE & CANNELLA”  in italiano

Yeah!! It’s peach time! Again, I know, it happens I have a few peach-themed recipes on my blog, but what I say, I love them! Love their tendersness and in this particular case that tenderness is matched to a crunchy crumble, so it’s just a perfect recipe, really.

Cinnamon gives to this recipe a very nice spicy flavour, which I personally think it is just what this recipe needed. Peaches and cinnamon is my new obsession. You can cut smaller squares and have them as part of a selection of tea-biscuits, nice idea, isn’t it?! Let’s see how I made this Peach and Cinnamon Crumble Square.

INGREDIENTS

for a 20×25 tin

  • 4 peaches, pealed and chopped
  • 190gr of sugar
  • 1 ts of baking powder
  • 1 ts of cinnamon powder
  • 380gr of flour + 2 tbs
  • 150gr of butter, very cold and diced
  • 2 eggs, beaten

icing

  • 2 tbs of milk
  • 1 ts of cinnamon powder
  • 100gr of icing sugar

METHOD

Please Note:Line the tin with a long piece of parchment paper, let the paper hang over the edges a bit, this will work as a “handle” and you’ll be able to take the entire block out of the tin, and then cut it into squares.

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, put the flour, baking powder and the eggs. Use the whisker attachment.
  2. Activate the stand mixer and let the whisker crumble the ingredients, you want to get a dusty mixture with floured pieced of butter. (see photo)

  1. Pre-heat oven at 175°.
  2. Dived this mixture into 2 batches.
  3. Pour the first batch into the tin lined with parchement paper (as described above)
  4. Press the crumble mix down with a spatula, or a spoon or with your clean fingers.
  5. Now, in a large bowl, put the peaches in plus the 2 tablespoons of flour.
  6. Flour the pieces of peaches and then put them into the tin over the pressed crumble.
  7. Make the peach layer  even and nice.
  8. Now take the last batch of crumble and sprinkle it on top.
  9. Bake for 50 minutes.
  10. In the mean time, in a bowl, put the icing sugar, cinnamon and milk. Mix well until you get a creamy (but not runny) mixture.
  11. Drizzle the icing over the baked squares when they will be ready but not too hot.

It is not difficult, is it?! If you don’t like peaches too much, you can use blueberries or even strawberries. If you decide to go for the latter, don’t use cinnamon, but some lemon zest into the crumble mixture instead.
