  3. this looks so good I might have to make this for our Easter Bake and Basket sale at our church..can’t wait to try it..I love the friendship bread so I can taste this in the cobbler..

    • This is my first time on site. I wanted to print the cobbler recipe but is there a button to push just to print the recipe and not everything else on the page?

      • Debbie McLaurin says:

        I have found that I have to highlight the text I want to print, copy and paste it to a word document, and then print. It is the only way I have found not to get all of the extra advertising, etc. when printing.

  4. Thanks for sharing this! I’ve been tyirng bread for a while, but can never get it quite right so I give up and try a month or two later. I’ve decided part of my problem (not all of it…yesterday I forgot the salt!) is my pans so I want to find some nice bread pans. I like yours! So can I ask where you got them and how much they were? 🙂

    • Debbie McLaurin says:

      One suggestion that I would offer is to be sure that you do NOT get the dark pans. They have a tendency to get hotter and the cakes get too brown. The last time I used a dark pan, the bottom burned before the center cooked.Yuck! The best ones I have found are the lightweight aluminum, old fashioned metal (not the disposable type). Spray with cooking spray and the cakes come right out. Only cool a few minutes before turning out to cool.

  5. I just made this and it’s in the oven. I am concerned because when I made the starter mixture, it was very thick, and I was not able to “pour” it over the peach mixture in the pan. Instead I placed spoonfuls of the toping over the mixture. Did anyone else have this experience? I double checked and followed the directions exactly just to be sure. Hoping I didn’t just waste 4 cups of delicious peaches! 🙂

    • I did have the same issue. I added an egg to the mixture. Spooned it over apple pie filling. Looks & smells great! Will try it as soon as it cools.
