The first person I served this for didn't like peach cobbler (unknown to me). He really enjoyed it. I just made it because it sounded yummy and I was dieting. No one will ever guess it's 'lighter' than any other cobbler. I hope you like it. Oh! and it's quick and easy.

Stir in 1 cup of the reserved liquid from the peaches and the milk until smooth. Pour the batter evenly into the bottom of the dish over the margarine. Do not stir. Spoon peaches over the batter.

  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden.

Simple recipe. I altered it a little. I only used 1/2 cup of sugar.This recipe was plenty sweet just with the amount of sugar I used in it. I can't possibly imagine using 1 1/2 cups of sugar! And I added cinnamon to the peaches and allspice to the batter. Also I used soy milk instead of regular milk. I cooked this recipe in a glass pan and it took about 20 minutes longer than what the original time calls for. The next time that I make this I think I'll add vanilla to the batter like one of the other reviewers suggested. I tasted the batter before I put anythiing in it and it tasted to dull. So play with your spices and doctor it up a little! Read More

The initial appeal of this recipe was its simplicity and the fact that it called for low-fat margarine and skim milk. In addition as my husband is a diabetic I substitued granular Splenda for the sugar - just followed the online Splenda info source (www.splenda.com) to add 1/2 tsp. of extra baking powder for every cup of Splenda used instead of sugar and checked for earlier cooking time. It turned out really well except that the outcome was a little "paler' than it would have been with real sugar. I suppose I can always sprinkle some sugar on top to add some color. Also I added a tsp. of ground cinammon and vanilla as suggested by earlier reviewers. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I saw all the good reviews and thought this would be tasty and easy to prepare. Well it was very easy. It pretty much tasted like bread and butter with mushy peaches stuck in it. Very disappointing and a waste of ingredients. Ice cream didn't even help it taste better. Sorry... Read More

Although this is not the most sophisticated peach cobbler recipe it is a GOOD basic one to make...I added vanilla and cinnamon to the batter and was going to sprinkle with nuts but decided not to..maybe next time...cooking time was around 10 minutes longer than stated in the recipe maybe because I used a glass pan....good basic recipe...

This was such an easy recipe! I was in a hurry and kind of screwed up and bought peaches in heavy syrup and completely forgot to put the milk in but it still turned out great. I love to bake but I don't always like to put in the time and effort some baked goods require. I love it when something labeled "quick and easy" turns out to taste really great too. Read More

This is a fast and good dish. Not the best peach cobbler but I give it 5 stars just for the time and effort involved: all ingredients were on hand 5 minutes to prepare and it was in the oven. Quick easy and tasty. Read More

Quick and simple recipe and very tasty. My wife ate the whole thing in two days so we will have to make again soon. Cut the sugar to 1 cup and it was still fine. Read More
