I had the same results as another reviewer of this recipe. Once th dish cooled it became very soggy and not sweet at all. It may have been that some of the peaches in my bushel were a tad under ripe. It looks beautiful though, so presentation is nice and once the peaches are peeled and sliced it is easy to make. Just had no flavor. Maybe honey or brown sugar would make it sweeter instead of just the white sugar.

This is a wonderful and easy way to use the ripe peaches of summer. I have made this several times to rave reviews. I serve it with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream. Although the recipe description says a biscuit-like topping, I would call it more cake-like -- my kind of cobbler. I will continue making this for years!

Very tasty!! Everyone raved about it! The crust underneath was just sweet enough- I subbed splenda for the sugar in the filling, turbinado topping, and for half of the sugar in the batter. Came out perfectly!

Very good for a "light recipe" which is what I was wanting, of course! I did make some modifications just based on what I had. Used almond milk instead of regular milk and olive oil in place of the butter which makes it even healthier! Plus I left the skins on the peaches. Was really wishing I had some vanilla frozen yogurt to go on top.....

I wonder what I did wrong. The butter pooled and just looked gross. I "did not stir" the batter into the melted butter, per the instructions. The batter only got "cakey" in spots. Won't be making this again!

This happens to be my all-time favorite fruity dessert. I use all the ingredients, however I am not following the preparation steps - making the dough in the pan just didn't work for me. The peaches on top make the dough soggy so I reverse the order in the pan. I prep the peaches, put them in the pan. Then prep the dough (actually make it in the food processor) and pour it over the peaches (and I half the dough recipe - it makes plenty). In regards to the sweetness, it is really important to taste the peaches mixture. When the peaches are nice and ripe, they don't need much sugar and I dial it back. Very, very yummy :)

Really tasty dish. It can use a bit more cinnamon in the batter and maybe nutmeg, or other spice, with the peaches. I used brown sugar with the peaches instead of more granulated sugar and I think it was a good move as the dish wasn't too sweet. I also used firm ripe peaches and I think that was a good choice as opposed to more ripe peaches that might juice out too much. All in all, a good dish.
