Gluten-free Peach Cobbler #recipe from author @DarylWoodGerber




Peaches are still in season! Yay. But not for much longer. I was at Costco and saw a box of peaches for $8.99. Now, I'm not big on buying huge boxes of fruit for little old me. It spoils too quickly, but I touched one of the peaches and they were ripe and ready to go. How could I resist? I love peach anything: peach pie, peach ice cream, peaches and cream, peaches with my cereal. If I bought the box, I would feast for a week on peaches. 

So I did.

And the first thing I made was peach cobbler. There's nothing pretty about cobbler except laying out the fruit and the moment you put it in the oven. When it comes out, the dish is splattered. When you serve it, it oozes everywhere. I don't know how to fix this. If any of you have a suggestion, I'm ready to listen!

In the meantime, sloppy gets the job done, and the flavor is terrific. If you don't like nutmeg, leave it out. It definitely gives this cobbler a tang!

Note: if you don't eat the whole cobbler on the first day, I have to admit that the topping gets a little sluggish. So be prepared to feast and feast fast!  Or simply remove the topping and feast on the peaches for two to three days more (see picture at the end). They are great with whipped cream.

So, do you shop at big box stores? Which is your favorite? I find whenever I go to Costco that I buy too much, but I always use whatever I buy. How about you?

Gluten-free Deep-dish Peach Cobbler

For the filling:
5 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon tapioca flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

For the cobbler topping:
½ cup sweet rice flour
½ cup tapioca flour
1½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup milk
¼ cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon sugar + ½ teaspoon cinnamon, to sprinkle on top
Whipped cream, if desired

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Peel and slice the peaches. Set them in scalloped rows in a deep-dish pie plate.

In a small bowl, mix sugar, brown sugar, tapioca flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle over the peaches.

In a medium bowl, combine the sweet rice flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, milk, melted butter, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon sugar. It will be crumbly. Sprinkle over the peaches.

Combine the remaining tablespoon sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the batter.

Bake for 25 - 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the pastry comes out clean.












Just the peaches with a little bit of the topping. Lots of whippped cream.

Savor the mystery!

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!
