This was delicious and such an easy dessert to put together! We had all the ingredients ready in the kitchen and it didn't make much of a difference that I mixed it all by hand rather than in a food processor. Will definitely make this for family when I next see them.

Just made this recipe this weekend. It was delicious en super easy to make. But instead of serving it with vanilla icecream I mixed the syrup from the peaches with some cream and served that with it. I thought it a shame not to use the syrup.

Made this Peach cobbler in individual ramekins for a lunch with friends. A lot of prep can be done in advance to make it easier. An uncomplicated recipe that was easy to follow. Our friends were all very impressed and the cobblers looked perfect, and tasted amazing.

Hi, You need a dish that's big enough to hold the two cans of peach slices, about 20cm across the base. I hope this helps. Lulu
