Laura Young Recipe

Every time I make this cobbler I get requests for the recipe. One of our friends said it was the best peach cobbler he had ever eaten. I found this several years ago in a magazine. I have used frozen or fresh peaches in this recipe and that works well. Need enough peaches to completely cover the bottom of the pan.

Peach cobbler is one of my favorites - any kind of fruit pie or cobbler but as you know, some are much better than others. I'm going to give this one a try one of these days. Thanks for sharing.

This sounded so yummy I had to try this. I used a milk and honey white bread, because all I could find was hawaiian rolls. I put the bread strips on top in a criss cross. I also cut back on some of the white sugar and added a little brown sugar and sprinkled with cinnamon. I wasn't really happy with the looks of it, but warm with vanilla ice cream knocked our socks off. I think the next one I'll try cubing the bread. This is great, thanks so much for sharing This is a fun one!

I really enjoyed making this simple but so yum cobbler.
I did do some extra's and my family enjoyed it. Thank you!
When I mixed the egg,butter and sugar it was a bit too thick. I then added some milk to make it like 'pancake' consistency. I then sprinkled cinnamon and topped that off with a bit of heavy whipping cream to add more richness to this already delicious reipe.

Tried this yesterday. It was awesome. I had been trying to find a recipe for peach cobbler where the crust was crusty yet light. This is it, and sooooo easy. Just a bit too sweet, so I'll cut back on the sugar just a tad. Thanks so much!

This was fun because it's so easy! I can see using any type of fruit, or even skipping the fruit and just baking and eating the gooey buttery bread topping! How decadent is that? Incorporating comments from others, I cubed the bread which gave it a nice golden knobby texture, added vanilla for more depth of sweetness, two pinches of cinnamon, and three pinches of cardamom which is always nicely paired with peaches. Thank you so much for the delicious!
