"I have made this for my ladies' Bible study brunch and for my kids and got rave reviews both times!"

"I did add a couple tablespoons of peach juice to the cooked syrup. I also added a couple tablespoons of peach juice to the cream cheese and used my mixer and whipped it until smooth. The cream cheese mixture is easy to spread and you are not biting into a clump of cream cheese."

"After reading some of the reviews that said it was bland, not very sweet, etc., I did change the way the ingredients were layered in the pan. I started with half the bread cubes, followed by half the peaches, the cream cheese, the remaining bread cubes and remaining peaches. I drizzled the brown sugar/butter mixture over the top and finished by pouring the egg mixture over all. We thought the french toast had a delicious caramel flavor to it and I will definitely make it this way again. My husband added some maple syrup to his, but I thought it was sweet enough without. I only made a half a batch for the two of us, but am looking forward to making a full batch the next time we have company for brunch!"

"Used maple syrup instead of corn and added allspice to egg mixture. Dusted the top with cinnamon and brown sugar! Delish!"

"Hubby and I and half the kids loved it. The other half of the kids liked the flavor, but as stated in several reviews, did not like the chunks of cream cheese. As for it not having enough flavor or sweetness, though I added some cinnamon, remembering that it is supposed to be breakfast and not dessert, I thought the flavor was fabulous. Next time I will either blend the cream cheese with some peach juice and spread it more evenly or just blend it with the eggs. I will also use peach juice instead of corn syrup for the syrup layer --wish I had thought of that while I was putting it together. We can't wait to use this recipe the next time we go with friends to a cabin getaway!"

"My family loves this, even the pickiest eater. I use Harvest Spice peaches instead of regular sliced peaches and I don't refrigerate over night- no soggy bread as others have complained about."

"Very dissapointed- Soggy bread, and clumps of cream cheese. Just blah. I added brown sugar and cinnamon to the top as suggested by others reviews. Just wasn't as delicious as expected."

"I also don't understand why the recipe says to drain the peaches and use corn syrup. The juice in the peaches is usually thick (even the light ones) and it definitely has more flavor and just as much sweetness than corn syrup. Whenever I try recipes that call for draining the juice from fruit, but then call for extra water or other similar substances (ie corn syrup) I like to use the juice instead of just wasting it. It also saves on one less item i need to purchase if I don't have the one on hand (ie corn syrup)."

"The only reason I said I would make this again after I rated it one star is because I would like to try and see if I can improve it the second time around.... I made this for a treat for Easter morning for the group home I work at since most ladies are on a diet, I thought a splurge in calories would be a nice treat for breakfast and this sounded so good. I followed the directions exactly, but it was bland! It really didn't have much flavor like I thought it would and I was really disappointed that the cream cheese was still in chunks and not melted more thoroughly after an hour in the oven. I wish I had read and followed some of the advice others had made about pumpkin pie spice or sprinkling a little brown sugar and cinnamon over the top. I think next time I will put peaches in the center layer and blend the cream cheese into a smooth spreadable layer in the hopes it will melt better. I think I will also blend some peaches & peach juice up in the egg mixture too and hope that will give a better flavor through out the whole dish. Here's hoping for a better second time around!"
