Peach crumble slice

Peach crumble slice




  • 90g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1 2/3 cups dried peaches, finely chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 90g unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ plain flour
  • ½ brown sugar



Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a rectangular slice pan.

In a small bowl, combine the plain flour, melted butter and sugar. Press the mixture evenly across the base of the prepared pan.

Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.

While the base is baking, combine the diced fruit, water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes or until thick. Stir occasionally.

Combine the remaining melted butter, coconut, flour and brown sugar in a small bowl.

When the base comes out of the oven, cover the hot base evenly with the thickened fruit and then top with the coconut mixture.

Return to the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.


Serving Suggestions


  • You could use any dried fruit you like – apricots, apple, pears – but I fancied a little summer sunshine that comes with using peaches.
  • Slices are definitely a little more work than bunging a batch of muffins in the oven but they are always worth that extra effort!
  • My kids love a square of slice in their lunch boxes. And the neat part of making a slice for school is that you’ll have recess sorted for days because this slice makes 12 generous pieces.
