    i also did this recipe using frozen forest fruit. i soaked the fruit first in 150ml of warm water as tinned fruit has juice to add turned out just as nice  -  16 Jan 2015


    I've never made or even had a cobbler before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I added cinnamon into the sponge mix and it came out super delicious and amazing. I'll definitely be doing this again, wish I had bought some ice cream!  -  23 Feb 2014


    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!  -  22 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
