Reviews for Tennessee Peach Pudding
"I never thought this would work.. honestly. I thought it would be too mushy and "weird". I was SO wrong and I'm so glad I tried it. The peachy-cake mixture cooked up nicely and the sweet topping made the dish just creamy enough. I made my own whipped cream using coconut milk to serve and it was truly one of my favorite desserts. I will be making this very often!"
"Love this!!! First time I used white nectarines and it tasted great but looked a little bland. Used yellow peaches the next time and it was perfect. I think I will use a few more peaches next time I make it. As my husband says, "THIS IS A KEEPER!!""
"Delicious! I used a combination of plums and nectarines. I used half white, half whole wheat flour, and palm sugar. II agree it was delicious cold the next morning. It was like a delicious compote with built in cake. Great way to use up stone fruit that's past its prime."
"GOT SOME FRESH PEACHES THIS WEEK AND LOOKED FOR A RECIPE AND FOUND THIS ONE. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! HAD FOR DESSERT ABOUT 1/2 HOUR AFTER DINNER AND IT WAS STILL WARM AND SERVED WITH WHIPPED CREAM. DEFINITELY A KEEPER! YUMMMM BY THE WAY, I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE EXACTLY EXCEPT ADDED MORE PEACHES, ABOUT 5 CUPS IN ALL."
"My husband and I absolutely LOVED this. We did cut it in half because that's all the peaches we had.Originally, I was going to take the advice of other reviewers and back off on the topping, especially since the peaches we had were very ripe and extremely juicy. However, I forgot to do that, and instead just made it as-is. When it came out of the oven, I was disappointed. It was a big mess, and there was definitely too much liquid. I put all the leftovers in the fridge for another night.When I pulled them back out a couple days later, I have to say that I fell in love with this dish!! It tastes a million times better cold, and the cold actually helped it firm up; it was no longer liquid-y. It reminded me of a delicious bread pudding (almost). I can understand why some people are disappointed, but give this a chance as-is. If you don't like it, then make adjustments for your next trial ;)"
