Golden Peach Crunch

Welcome to another adventure in making recipes from my Grandmother’s cookbooks!  “Favorite Recipes of Alabama Vocational Home Economics Teachers Third Edition” is the only one I found that still has a title page.  The book was published circa 1960’s and I believe was sold through the area schools as a fundraiser. 

Looking through the pages of this cookbook, the recipe for Golden Peach Crunch caught my eye.  Since my whole family loves peaches, I decided to give it a try.

To make this recipe, the peaches and spices are combined in a bowl and then poured in a baking dish.


The topping ingredients are mixed together and ready to be put on the peaches.


Time to go in the oven to bake…


Hot from the oven and ready to eat…or you can let it cool to room temperature before serving.



I like to serve this dessert warm from the oven with a scoop of ice cream.  Yummy!


What I love about this dessert is the fact that it’s super easy to make and it bakes up quickly. Perfect for those days when you’re short on time, but still want a great dessert.

Golden Peach Crunch

2 cans (1 lb 13 oz) peach slices, drained

1 1/2 t cornstarch

1/4 t cinnamon

1/4 t nutmeg

1 T lemon juice

1 c quick Quaker oats (uncooked)

1/2 c butter, melted

1/2 c brown sugar (packed)

In a large bowl, combine the peaches with cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice.  Pour into an 8” baking dish.  In another bowl, mix until crumbly the oats, butter, sugar and salt.  Sprinkle this mixture over the peaches and bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.  May serve hot with whipped cream.  Yields 8 servings.

At first I thought this post was a tease now that peach season is over, but then I noticed it calls for canned peaches. We love canned peaches! Now I guess we can have a little taste of freshly baked summer all year long.
