fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced
This was a great recipe! I used it with fresh peaches and apples. If you didn't like it, here's probably what went wrong- yes, the butter should be reduced by 2-3 tablespoons. To keep the crust white/ golden brown, sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the peaches- putting it in the batter will make it too dark. Finally, this recipe is best with FRESH peaches; canned peaches are so saturated with syrup and other stuff that they don't soak up the butter. Additional juices/ syrup makes everything runny and the crust mushy, so if you have to used canned peaches, drain them really really well.
This recipe contains way too much butter. After it was baked the butter pooled up on top and it took five paper towels to soak it up! What a shame to let all those fresh peaches swim in all that grease. I'd reccmmend that others just butter the bottom of the baking dish or use a reasonable few tablespoons. The topping was flavorful but didn't rise much. It was more crunchy than cakey. There is lots of room for improvement here.
I loved this!!! I added cinnamon to the peaches and doubled the batter as suggested for a 9 X 13. Also tried the exact recipe in a 8X8 pan and it was perfect!
I've never made Peach Cobbler until today and I used this recipe...it tasted WONDERFUL, I didn't change a thing in the recipe...I used 10 medium peaches that I got over at our local Farmers Market..to peal them easily drop peaches in boiling water for about a minute and then take them out of the boiling water with a opened spoon and put them in cold water. I'll definitely use this recipe again..IT'S A KEEPER.
We love this recipe! This is the best cobbler I ever had. We do double the dough though. The recipe here is just a little too little. I have used this recipe for other fruits as well. Just wonderful!
Yum! I cut this recipe in half and tried to make it a bit healthier :) I used 1T low fat margarine, reduced the sugar in the dry ingredients to half, and did not put any sugar on the peaches. Cooked in an 8x8 square dish for 30 minutes - perfect!
So simple, yet so good! I cut the amount of butter in half and added an extra cup of peaches - you can never have too many peaches, right? I also used brown sugar vs. white to toss with the peaches and added a generous splash of vanilla. I left everything else the same and it baked up beautifully! It smelled wonderful and tasted even better topped with vanilla ice cream!
I made this in an 8x8 pan and was a bit skeptical at first when all the butter was coming to the top, but as it cooks, the topping rises up. Delicious! My fiance, who wanted me to get his mom's recipe, actually approved of this one!
