Perfect for cherry season this cobbler is easy to make and tastes great. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
Super easy recipe with super common ingredients, and a super nice finished product. However, I recmmend you cut the sugar and the water to about 3/4 of the amount listed, as it is all very very sweet, and is a bit on the runny side. - 07 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this dessert for my husband for his special Father's Day meal and he loved it. After reading all the reviews, I decided to use only 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 cup water and increased to 1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch. It came out very firm, almost like lemon meringue pie. So next time, the only thing I will change is the sugar. I will use 1/2 cup sugar like I did this time, but do everything else the way it called for in the recipe. We would have preferred at least a bit of juiciness. Also, I cooked it for about 5 minutes longer because I wanted the top to be entirely golden brown and it was not quite like that at 45 minutes. This would be great with any summer fruit or berries - I am going to try it with peaches when the season comes round. - 20 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is the yummiest ooey gooey cobbler i have ever made. Usually i do berries or fruit topped with cake batter...but this pudding cake kinda way with pouring over the water mixture just sets everything together...VERY good. I used fresh sweet cherries...and cut back the sugar to half of what was called for and it was sweet enough with the dark cherries. A hit for sure...and i will be experimenting with different berries and fruit fillings. Thanks a bunch. - 14 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
