 Isn't this just a cobbler with sour cream?

Technically cobblers have a bottom layer of fruit topped with a biscuit type dough.

Crisps also have a bottom layer of fruit but the top layer is more crunchy than cobblers.

Crumbles also have a bottom layer of fruit but are topped with a streusel.

Kuchen is a German word for cake.  It's more pie like, with a sweet crust on the bottom. It usually has fruit in it and a custard type topping.

Hope that helps you in understanding the difference.

It's actually very good.  You can substitute pears, apples, etc.  Doesn't have to be served as a desert but could be used as a breakfast item especially if you can not serve omelets.

It contains grains (crust), fruits, milk group and protein (egg yolks).

Also is good warm or cold.  For breakfast I would go with the warm.

Update.  This is the first time I have posted a receipe on this site and I found it not to be very intuitive to do.  Glad I had posted it since I misplaced my original so I knew where to look.

Anyways, I cut the receipe in half yesterday because I had a smaller gathering of people.  I would say that half of the receipe will serve atleast 6 people without scrimping.

Very easy to make and a real crowd pleaser.

Could be served in the morning or afternoon depending on your likes.
