Reviews for Iva's Peach Cobbler
"Didn't care for the texture of the crust, too crunchy. I prefer my crust more cake like. It was way to sweet. I used 1 cup sugar on peaches and 1 cup sugar in crust. It didn't have a lot of flavor, so next time I would add cinnamon & vanilla extract to kick it up a notch, maybe some nutmeg. The peaches had a great taste, just needed more of them. I used (1) 16 oz. frozen bag of peaches."
"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!"
