I found this to be a very quick and easy recipe. However I cut back on the water to 1 cup and brought it to a boil to dissolve the sugar before I put it over the fruit and batter. It was very tasty. I will definately make this again. Read More

This is a promising recipe but is lacking flavor. It was too bready but maybe doubling the peaches would solve that problem. Also the peaches were a little bland. (Maybe because I used canned.) Maybe a little lemon juice would give it some "kick." Read More

Excellent! Very easy and took only minutes to prepare. I used very ripe peaches and cut back on the cinnamon sugar combination. This was delicious served when warm with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Read More

I'm giving this a 4-star rating even though my peaches didn't sink to the bottom and it didn't rise properly because I'm thinking the problem may lie with my baking powder. When baked goods containing baking powder fail to rise it's usually time to replace your baking powder. That said the cobbler was delicious! My grandfather licked it right up! Read More

Nice taste--not too sweet. Different from other cobblers I've made. N.B. If doubling the recipe I wouldn't double the amount of water added but add about 2 c. Read More

I've been making this recipe for years. I got it out of one of my Mom's favorite church cookbooks. You know what they say the best foods come from church socials. I always double my recipe because everyone loves it so much. I also add 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 2-3 tablespoons butter and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Then I heat it on the stove to a boiling point before spooning the peaches over the dough and adding the juice over the top. I also feel that the amount of juice is too much as everything boiled over in the oven. I would reduce the liquid to whatever suits the pan size. With Vanilla Ice Cream on top and the cobbler still warm it's Sinful. Read More
