Today I was really in the baking mood for some reason and decided to stop by Underwood Farms in Moorpark to see what fruit they had in season to make a cobbler. I settled on some delicious peaches and since my husband and I are currently staying with my parents due to our house remodel (more like house overhaul– more on that later) and my mom is gluten free, I made a healthy gluten free peach cobbler. And let me tell you– it was really good. So I’ve got the recipe for you and some enticing pictures 🙂
I got the basic recipe off of King Arthur Flour’s website here. I made a few alterations like adding my mom’s home made vanilla extract and using cinnamon and nutmeg in the fruit mixture. And of course I used fresh peaches from my local farmer’s market instead of frozen fruit and I also bought my eggs from there as well.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 4 peaches (or 2 1/2 cups frozen peaches)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- pinch salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Melt the 1/4 cup butter in a 8 inch square pan.
- Make the batter by mixing the baking mix and sugar and then adding the milk and egg.
- Prepare the peaches by pitting, peeling, and slicing them (this is the longest part, but believe me it’s worth it!). If you are using frozen peaches set them out to thaw first.
- Add the sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla to the sliced peaches and stir together.
- Pour half of the batter into the pan, then all of the peach mixture, and then the other half of the batter over the peaches.
- I sprinkled some more cinnamon on top and was thinking you could even make a little crumble topping with butter, oats, and brown sugar if you wanted! Get creative!
- Bake 40-45 mins. The cobbler should be lightly browned and the fruit bubbling.
- Remove peach cobbler and let it cool before serving.
Hope you enjoy this recipe! Don’t forget you can also use any of your favorite fresh fruit from your local farmer’s market such as blackberries or blueberries in place of peaches in this recipe.
