Peach cobbler is a favourite dessert. A cobbler is a dessert made of fruit and topped with a batter/biscuit/dumpling and then baked in the oven.

Besides fresh peaches you could also use canned peaches or frozen peaches. the recipe I used was one of the featured recipes in the library activity kits I get each month. You can also find the recipe here at Taste of Home.

I substituted gluten free flour for all purpose flour.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh or frozen peaches
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Cobbler Topping:

  • 1/3 cup gluten free flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted

Combine topping ingredients in a bowl and mix well, add melted butter. Continue to stir until mixture is smooth.

Divide peach mixture between 2 individual baking dishes, add a spoonful of the topping and back at 400 F for about 25 minutes until brown on top.

Let cool and serve on its own or with ice cream or dessert topping. Delicious.

You could use other types of fruit. I would cut down on the topping a bit as it was a bit too much or increase the amount of fruit to give it more filling.

I freeze local fruit when it is in season so that I can enjoy it over the winter months in smoothies, with yogurt, or to make overnight oatmeal.

My cooking is always gluten free. Find a yummy recipe to cook.

Trick: Here is a little trick to remember how to not get desert and dessert mixed up. Desert only has one s because you only want to be stranded in the desert once, but dessert has 2 s’s because you always want double the dessert!

      Lots of foods I can’t eat either, gluten being one of them, that is why I always change out all purpose flour for gluten free. You can always change out the peaches for another fruit.
