The name of this dessert is just cute as a bug and it’s what drew me to the recipe. I was so lucky for it! This is one of THE best desserts I’ve made in recent memory. Granted, I really lucked out with beautiful, perfectly ripe, juicy and blemish-free peaches and the importance of that must be underscored. But the best peach in the world wouldn’t help a bad recipe. This one is absolutely beyond any criticism. None. Zip. Loved the sweet peaches just as is – no cinnamon or other spices, no thickening agents, no butter, vanilla (as it seems so many are often wont to add) or anything else extraneous. Just pure sweet peach flavor. As for the cake-like topping, mmm, good. Buttery, moist and tender cake which could not have been a better partner for those sweet, juicy peaches. I added a handful of dried cherries to the peaches and I sprinkled the top with sanding sugar before baking. While both were nice additions, neither was necessary, nor was the dessert necessarily any better for those additions. The baking directions were helpful and the time and temperature spot on accurate. Pansy Petals, you indicated this recipe has been in your family for generations and it is completely understandable why. Thanks for sharing your family’s special recipe - it’s a jewel.

A total and utter bust. When I checked it at 40 minutes, the center was still not set. I baked it an additional 10 minutes, and it still wasn't done. Went a further 25 minutes, and although the center seemed to spring back at that point, it collapsed while cooling, a classic sign of under baking. Yup. Sure enough, when the crust was broken to dish it up, the center revealed a raw, gooey, semi-liquid mess. I regularly check the calibration on my oven's temperature, so that wasn't the problem. The edges were crispy, due to the added bake time, and the flavor was decent. Recipe was followed exactly, and measurements were triple checked. All in all, a sad, disappointing waste of some gorgeous (and expensive) peaches.

This peach cobbler was very good! I kept it in a little longer in the oven, and it browned very nicely. Besides that, I sprinkled a small amount of sugar on the top to add a tad more sweetness. I would add a little more peaches, as my recipe turned out more bread-y than fruity. However, my family and I thought it was very good and this recipe was a hit for dessert. Also tastes delicious with a dollop of ice cream on top.

A nice way to enjoy peaches for dessert. I used an additional peach and added a splash of vanilla. It came out tasting a bit eggy, so next time, I'd probably just use one egg, or one egg and one white.

This recipe is as wonderful as it's name. I have made it several times without a problem. Just love it.. This is not a cobbler or a crisp, it's a "wrinkle" and amazing with our fresh peaches, or as the recipe suggest, other fresh fruits. A slight adjustment in temperature for me when I bake in a glass pan I do this at 325 degrees. Never had a problem with under baking. Just touch the top, if it springs back it's done! If you use someone else's recipe and make all sorts of changes on your own and don't like it, well it's not the original recipe and you should not review it as such. This is perfect and a real keeper for my family...thank you Use a 9 X 13 pan for perfect results

Everyone really liked this. My peaches were on the small side so I used a 9x9 pan. It was too much cake mixture for that small of a pan. I had to cook it way longer than specified. Next time I will use a lot more peaches and use a 9x13 dish. I also thought it could of used a little more sugar. I think a good sprinkle on top would help. There was no left overs.

I had to use canned peaches because I couldn't find peaches anywhere (it's December), but it was still great. I sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon on top of the peaches before I spread the batter. Our favorite part was the cake topping, it was soo good! Can't wait to try this with fresh peaches!

Absolutely delicious- Easy to make, and the fact it uses common ingredients is great. We used slightly under-ripe peaches, which gave a great tartness and made the dish not overall too sweet and rich. The sponge was light and fluffy, too.
