    Thumbs up! Good recipe. Very easy and can be made with ingredients on hand. Best made with fresh fruit. I was a little hesitant just spooning the fruit on top of the batter and not having a topping to place over the fruit, but soon realized the topping comes up over the top of the fruit almost encasing it. I did as another baker did and added a tablespoon of orange juice and sprinkled just a little bit of cinnamon on top of the fruit (peaches & plums) and then sprinkled some brown sugar on top once the fruit was spooned over the batter and it turned out fantastic. Thank you! Excellent recipe.  -  09 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely my favorite dessert recipe I have found thus far on this site. I was really afraid...never having made cobbler before and trying it out for the first time with company over for dinner. It was fabulous. Company loved it and asked for the recipe. I didn't have any peaches, but used apples instead...all I had on hand. Thank you for the post....delicious.  -  31 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used fresh blueberries instead of peaches with great success. Good recipe. I will definitely make it again.  -  27 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
