SMS: Bear's Peach Cobbler

This week's Sweet Melissa Sunday recipe choice was Bear's Peach Cobbler. I honestly don't know if I've ever had peach cobbler before. I know, I know. Go ahead and gasp. Nathan did. My friend Monica did. But I really don't think that I have and, if I did, well, it obviously wasn't great because I don't remember it.

But this peach cobbler? YUM YUM YUM! I really enjoyed it. I did make a few changes to the recipe. First, the most obvious change is that I baked it in individual ramekins instead of making one big cobbler. There were two reasons behind this; 1- MUCH quicker baking time, and 2- Nathan and I wouldn't have been able to eat the entire recipe by ourselves fast enough.


The other change I made was to use frozen sliced peaches. Our commissary isn't known for it's produce department and the peaches weren't ripe the day I was going to make this. So frozen was my only choice. They worked wonderfully, except for that I should've added a little more cornstarch to compensate for the extra liquid in the frozen peaches.



Nathan, who has had peach cobbler before, loved this. He said it was a really good cobbler. I, who has never had peach cobbler, loved this. It was incredibly good and I will definately make it again!

Thanks to Andrea of Nummy Kitchen for choosing this wonderful dessert! The recipe can be found at her blog. Also, check out the amazing SMS bakers to see what they cooked up!

This looks VERY tasty (and don't let people give you a hard time about not having tasted a cobler) LOL.

I've never tasted any type of cobler myself, I think it's a pretty American desert! I think I'll rewind one day to give this a go.

I love the dainty ramekins, they looks so good!

Cristine, LOL, I only discovered peach cobbler a few years ago myself and have only made it once or twice. You give such high praises to this, that I am most certainly going to revisit peach cobbler. Thanks for a delicious review. Yum1

I've never had it either and I LOVED it, too! I also made small ones, and I think it was a good way to go.

Jessica said...

I'm so glad that your first cobbler was a hit! And I'm glad that your hubs enjoyed it, too. I often think that frozen fruit is the best way to go because then I can make sure that it was ripe when frozen. I forgot my cornstarch entirely so my cobbler was super runny!

Flourchild said...

Im glad you and Nathan liked it. I really thought the whipped cream made it extra good. Im sure it would be great with ice cream too.
Happy Sunday!

Justin said...

since you're baking them, using the frozen peaches was probably just as good. yum.

Megan said...

Well, congratulations on your first peach cobbler - it looks great and I'm glad you two enjoyed it!

good to know that frozen peaches work too. Glad you liked your very first peach cobbler!

HoneyB said...

Peaches are so yummy! I just put some fresh peaches in my oatmeal this morning! Glad you enjoyed your cobbler (and Nathan too!)

PheMom said...

That does look so yummy with the cream on top too!

Congratulations on your first peach cobbler! They look wonderful, and I like the ramekin idea- I wish I'd thought of that, I ended up skipping this week's bake instead. I'm glad you liked them so much!

Tracey said...

What a pretty cobbler!! I almost used frozen peaches so I'm glad to hear they worked out well for you. Hooray for a successful first experience with peach cobbler! I thought it was yummy too :)

Hornedfroggy said...

So glad you liked it! :) The mini cobbler is precious!

Risa said...

I have never had peach cobbler either and I am from Georgia! I will have to rectify this shortly1

margot said...

It looks so adorable in the ramekins! I also made a small batch, but now that I know how yummy it is I will definitely make more!

Alwayzbakin said...

It looks delicious and very cute in the little ramekins. I will also make this recipe again.

Katrina said...

Mmm, looks good. I'm totally in the mood for peach something now.

Sarah said...

I love your individual cobblers! They're mouth-watering!

karen said...

I loved this recipe.

Bunny said...

I need to look for this book cause I've really enjoyed looking at all the recipes that have been posted by the Sweet Melissa group. I love cobblers, I'd use frozen peAches too, the fresh just aren't that great looking here yet.

Lauren said...

i too had not tried peach cobbler... glad you guys liked it!

Ingrid said...

I don't think I've had peach cobbler either!

Das seht wunderbar aus :o) I baked mine in ramekins too (less baking time and it looks cute). I was going to use frozen peaches too but the store I went to didn't carry them (so I subbed strawberry/rhubarb). Did you thaw yours out first or use them frozen?

Michele said...

Your cobbler looks perfect; I'm so glad that you loved it!

Fit Chick said...

I used frozen peaches to and the cobbler turned out great. So glad yours was yummy.

Mermaid Sweets said...

So glad that you liked it, love how you scaled it down, looks terrific.

finsmom said...

Looks soooo yummy! Drool-worthy!

Hi Cristine!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your first ever cobbler! My family really enjoyed it too, and I can't wait to adapt the recipe to different fruit fillings.

This is my first visit to your site, and I think it's fabulous- I live by your motto, Live Laugh Love Cook! I wanted to introduce myself- my name is Joy and I'm a brand new blogger and SMS baker.

Also, in your "About Me" section you mentioned you're an army wife- I was wondering if you've ever heard of Operation Baking GALS- it's a fantastic organization that I'm involved in where volunteer bakers bake and ship homemade cookies to deployed soldiers overseas. I lead a special group, Team Oven Loving for the Recovering, which bakes for hospitalized soldiers recovering from injury stateside. If you're interested in more information, please let me know- you can leave a comment on my blog or email at joy.d.saunders@gmail.com. You can also check out our site, www.bakinggals.com. We're always looking for new volunteers as well as deserving soldiers to nominate for upcoming rounds. Hope to hear from you soon!
