Reviews for Iva's Peach Cobbler
"Didn't like crust at all, although I thought it sounded good. Needed much more fruit. Not even one star for me."
"I made this yesterday with mangos and it was very good. I added just a bit more cornstarch because mangos tend to be more juicy but otherwise I followed the recipe as written."
"The best Peach Cobbler recipe!!! Added some extra spices. Pan cleaned out every time. Thank you Ms. Ewart!"
"The crust was almost like a crunchy meringue because of use of the stiffly beaten egg whites (which are extra time-consuming to whip). There wasn't enough crust mixture to cover the peaches well. The crust was also too sweet for my taste. I will not be making this again."
"I made this with 4 fresh peaches and added sime blueberries and a few raspberries. I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon for more flavor and used 1/2 cup of brown sugar on the fruit. Made the topping as directed. The batter was quite dry... But baked up nice and tasted good. I used a 9 x 9 pan as I had less fruit than called for. It baked in 45 min. Next time I will try to cut back even a bit more on the sugar."
"too much sugar; four-egg mixture too stiff egg whites wouldn't fold in because it was too crumbly. Added a little water to make it spreadable. would not make this again"
"Too much sugar!I cut the amount of sugar called for by over half a cup, and I still found the cobbler to be too sweet. It also needs cinnamon!"
"I made this with fresh peaches & it was delicious! I have given the recipe to two of my sisters. Thanks for sharing!"
"I tried it over the weekend and added sliced almonds for crunch. The peaches were fresh, but when all was baked, they were mushy and the whole thing lacked much flavor. I would not make it again."
