Iva’s Peach Cobbler

My mother received this peach cobbler recipe from a friend of hers many years ago, and fortunately she shared it with me. Boise is situated right between two large fruit-producing areas in our state, so peaches are plentiful in the summer. —Ruby Ewart, Boise, Idaho

    Too sweet and crust not as I like it. I like more pie crust texture than the cake mix texture.

    Delicious. I added about 3/4 tsp cinnamon to the peaches. I used 3/4 cup sugar and 9 peaches. I was concerned with "folding" the egg whites into a very thick dough without completely obliterating them but it worked!

    Absolutely delicious! Best cobbler ever! My mom wanted it over a very good chocolate cake we had from a bakery. She is a chocoholic, so that is how good it is. Very easy to to make and a great way to use up fresh peaches getting too ripe!

    Finally a cobbler crust I absolutely love! So crunchy and sweet on top, yet soft and cakey underneath, Made the cobbler with fresh peaches just now and it's heavenly. I'll be using the crust recipe for all my cobblers - next up, blueberry.

    The best cobbler recipe I've tried, and is now my go-to cobbler recipe. It was so easy to make, I followed directions exactly, and we love the crunchy topping!

    Vickie there’s no whipped cream in this recipe. In the video it’s whipped egg whites being folded into the batter. Hope this helps.

    So good, so easy, great served with or without ice cream. All with on-hand ingredients. My littlr granddaughter is learning to cook. I am going to teach her to make this. I added a little cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. Delicious! It is peach season here. Will make it often.

    This is a great recipe. I used a 29 ounce can of drained slice peaches in heavy syrup instead of fresh peaches. Then I add the other Ingedients listedcto add to the Sliced peaches in Iva's Peach Cobbler Recipe. I double the CRUST ingredients and bake as Iva's recipe states. It's delicious.

    Claudia, I made this recipe using one 29 ounce can of Del Monte Peach Halves in heavy syrup. I drained the liquid from the can and had way more than enough topping for that amount of peaches so I refrigerated 1/2 of the topping mixture to use in a couple of days in a second batch of Iva's Peach Cobbler. The version I made was plenty of desert for 4 people and I could have stretched it for 6, especially by adding ice cream on top. I did add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the peaches and I did cut back the sugar to 3/4 cup in the topping and 3/4 cup added to the peaches and it was still very sweet and delicious. Great recipe and it only takes a few minutes for prep if you have all the ingredients handy. I will definitely keep this one on hand and use it for any cobbler (Apple, Blueberry, Raspberry, Cherry or whatever).

    Sounds like a good easy recipe. Has anyone made it with canned peaches....?
