This was supposed to be a Tropical Crumble. It should have been overflowing with fruits and spices that would have you absently humming a Jimmy Buffett song. Exotic and 'yes, please, another umbrella drink'- ingredients, such as mango's, fresh ginger and bananas. I didn't have any of the above, save for the song "Lone Palm" floating through my head all day.
Luckily I did have access to several luscious white peaches and fresh blueberries! If they were capable of speaking poetically, I think blueberries would confess that they have a crush on peaches. Peaches are kind of like the cool BF's of cherries, blueberries twice-removed cousins. Needless to say, there was a lot of love in this humble crumble. The sweetness of the peaches played nicely with the more assertive blueberries. And even though my crumble was not as 'crumbly' as I would have liked (maybe because I was out of pecans?), it was still a great companion to the fruit. On a sweltering summer day, this is an easy dessert to whip up when your sweet tooth needs a quick fix.
