    My family LOVED it! I didn't have self rising flour so used regular flour and a teas. of baking powder. I didn't put in nutmeg. I added vanilla. I was worried about it being too sweet, but it was perfect. I served it w/ vanilla bean ice cream. WONDERFUL!  -  10 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for my family, and made no changes to the recipe. It was a winner! We loved the crusty top. Serve warm with fresh whipping cream or vanilla ice cream. Yum!  -  14 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Way too sweet. I made this using 1/2 cup sugar in the batter, 1 tablespoon in the peaches and 1 tablespoon sprinkled on top. It had the perfect sweetness and I could actually taste the peaches.  -  26 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
