Peach Cobbler Gluten-free #recipe plus #recipe for Sugar-free + #giveaway! @DarylWoodGerber



Giveaway below...

To everyone who helped getting the word out about Fudging the Books thank you!  I don't have any official numbers, but it's doing well in the bookstores. You are all the best.

Pirate Booty Fudge
For the past few weeks, I've been sharing chocolate-y recipes with you. Why? I'll bet you can guess. Look at the title of my book. Yep, that's right. There are chocolate recipes in the book too. Don't miss the pirate booty fudge!



But today, no!  No chocolate! No fudge.

Before peaches go out of season, I have to share this delicious cobbler with you. A few weeks ago, Peg shared a cobbler recipe, using strawberries. I saw it and thought, hmm. Peaches and gluten-free. Will it work? It did. And then my husband, who is recently diabetic, pouted.  What could I make for him? So I remade the recipe making it gluten-free AND sugar-free. Equally delicious!





So there you have it. PEACHES!!  My favorite all-time fruit. How I wish I could get good ones all year round!



By the way, I also made this recipe with blueberries, but the pictures didn't turn out so great. Blueberries are just too dark. I'll share them at the end, so you can see. No matter how you slice it, delicious!!!!

TWO RECIPES:



Old-Fashioined Fruit Cobbler

Gluten-free 
Ingredients:


4 cups of your favorite fruit (blueberries, peaches, peeled * see note below)
1 cup gluten-free flour
2 tablespoons whey protein powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
1 cup sugar (**see sugar-free note below, too!)
1 beaten egg

¼ cup butter, cut into cubes

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375.

Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper. Spread the fruit in the bottom of the pan.



In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, whey powder, baking powder, xanthan gum, sugar. Add the beaten egg and mix with a fork until the egg is incorporated, and the mixture is crumbly.



Spread the mixture evently over the fruit in the pan.



Dot with butter.  It’s hard to get it even. Do your best.  {You can even melt the butter, and then pour, which I found easier the second time I made this.}

Bake for approximately 40 minutes (know your oven!). Remove and let cool at least 20 minutes.



Serve in squares and top with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.



*BLUEBERRIES are easy. Rinse and pour into the pan.


*PEACHES – to remove the peel of peaches easily, heat water in a sauce pan to almost boiling. Remove from heat. Using tongs, dip a peach into the hot water for about 5-10 seconds. Remove, using tongs, and then use a serrated knife. It will easily slip under the skin. Do this one peach at a time.  4 cups of peaches = 4 very large peaches.

NOTE: You can make 1 1/2 recipes and use a 13 x 9 pan!

Old-Fashioined Fruit Cobbler

Gluten-free AND Sugar-free


Ingredients:


4 cups of your favorite fruit (blueberries or *peaches, peeled -  see note below)
1/4 cup sugar-free Swerve
1 cup gluten-free flour
2 tablespoons whey protein powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 cup MORE sugar-free Swerve
1 beaten egg

1/4 cup butter, cut into cubes


Directions:

Preheat oven to 375.

Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper. Spread the fruit in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar-free Swerve.

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, whey powder, baking powder, xanthan gum, sugar-free Swevre. Add the beaten egg and mix with a fork until the egg is incorporated, and the mixture is crumbly.

Spread the mixture evently over the fruit in the pan.

Dot with butter.  It’s hard to get it even. Do your best.  {You can even melt the butter, and then pour, which I found easier the second time I made this.}

Bake for approximately 40 minutes (know your oven!). Remove and let cool at least 20 minutes.

Serve in squares and top with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

*Blueberries are easy. Rinse and pour into the pan.


*PEACHES – to remove the peel of peaches easily, heat water in a sauce pan to almost boiling. Remove from heat. Using tongs, dip a peach into the hot water for about 5-10 seconds. Remove, using tongs, and then use a serrated knife. It will easily slip under the skin. Do this one peach at a time.  4 cups of peaches = 4 very large peaches.

You can see this cobbler is firmer.
I think that's because the sugar doesn't "melt" through the fruit as much.

NOTE: 

You'll notice the Sugar-Free recipe has more "sweetness" to it. I added the extra 1/4 cup of Swerve to the fruit because in the first version, the "non-sugar" in the mix didn't "melt" down into the fruit. I'm not sure if that's something that is just a given with real sugar. You bakers out there might be able to clue me in!  Also, the crust for the sugar-free one needed moisture on day 3, so I put a square into the microwave, covered with a wet paper towel and reheated on medium for 1 minutes. That softened everything up. Again, is this a sugar-free substitute reaction?

BLUEBERRIES: see what I mean? Dark!! It looks overbooked, but it's not!

  10. I think his hair looks truly Presidential candidate worthy.
    But don't have him run. It's much too hard on the candidates. It would age him.

    1. Krista thought I was being a little goofy about Trump. I think he's a (bleep), so Sparky was just having fun. Don't worry, he won't run. He needs to be home taking care of his mom! :)
