Easy fresh peach cobbler

    1 hour

    This cobbler really lets the naturally sweet and juicy fresh fruit flavour shine through, with the additions of lemon and cinnamon for a fragrant and light tartness and a simple, lovely crumble topping. Try making it with fresh berries, apricots, pears and/or apples and serve with vanilla ice cream or custard.

    Excellent! I took others advice and doubled the topping mix - glad I did because it's very good. I also used 5 big fresh peaches and baked in a 9" x 13" glass pan for 25 minutes.  -  04 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Needed more peaches than recipe called for. Also, I thought the dough recipe was a little too plain so I sprinkled the tops with cinnamon and sugar before baking. Better with ice cream.  -  31 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for my in-laws and they just loved it!! I prepped all the dry ingredients and cut up the peaches prior to dinner. This made for quick preparation once the dinner dishes were done! The cobbler part wasn't doughy at all and I added a little bit of cinnamon for a little extra kick! We put a little vanilla ice cream on it and it was heaven!  -  21 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
