Gluten Free Peach Cobbler

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Gluten Free Peach Cobbler is another addition to my many, many, many recipes for some version of Peach Cobbler! I based this recipe off my favorite version of Peach Cobbler, although this one runs a very close second. For years this was my favorite, but I have moved on. 🙂 When we lived south of the Metroplex we had an acre lot that had six mature, fruit bearing peach trees. I was always scrambling for ways to use up peaches! What better way than a crisp, cookies, cakes, pies, muffins, breads or bars? We no longer live in that home but we sure enjoyed our peach trees while we had them.

Working with gluten free flours can be tricky. I don’t recommend using coconut flour because it absorbs all the liquid and you usually end up with a globby mess on your hands. A good all-purpose gluten free blend including several different flours like brown rice, tapioca, garbanzo bean, almond meal, amaranth or quinoa is a great place to start. No matter what you do it won’t taste exactly like a recipe made with regular wheat flour, but it gives those with gluten intolerance an option they might not otherwise have.

Back in August, a guy in our Sunday school class lost his sister. I took them a meal as well as offered to organize a funeral meal that served about 50 people. Jeff’s wife, Debra, has Celiac Disease. Her’s is so bad that if a knife is used to cut bread and then used to cut gluten free bread, she will suffer a full blown reaction. Restaurant’s used to cause her a great deal of problems because of utensils being used for multiple purposes and cross-contaminated. I made them a gluten free meal, including a one-dish chicken entree, fruit, and tossed in this cobbler for dessert.

Gluten Free Peach Cobbler is a great alternative for those who need to stay away from gluten. If you have an abundance of peaches on your hands than this is a terrific way to use them up. After all, who doesn’t enjoy Peach Cobbler, especially if it’s served ala mode? I sure do.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the peach filling.

Place diced peaches in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch and lemon juice.

Stir ingredients to combine.

I used these ingredients for the topping. This was the only gluten free flour on hand. I highly recommend using a one-to-one equivalent gluten free flour instead.

Place gluten free flour in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir to combine.

Cut in cold butter with a pastry mixer until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add boiling water. The process may cause the ingredients to foam.

Remove peaches from oven. Pour topping over top of peaches in baking dish. Sprinkle with Sugar Topping.

Bake at 400 an additional 30 minutes or until topping tests done with a toothpick. Gluten free flour will brown more than regular wheat (all-purpose) flour.

Gluten Free Peach Cobbler is great served hot!

This is a delightful twist on a classic southern favorite. A scrumptious peach filling spiced up with cinnamon and nutmeg is topped with a gluten free topping and sprinkled with sugar. It makes a nice crunchy crust and is a great gluten free dessert, especially when it's served ala mode!

Recipe Notes

NOTE: I recommend using a blended all-purpose gluten free flour rather than just one. I do not recommend using coconut flour in this recipe. I also suggest a gluten free flour other than one that's made for pancake mixes.

    Thank you for making peach cobbler gluten free! It’s one b of my favorites!!
    I just barely mixed together some white rice flour, potato flour and tapioca flour to make a gluten free blend…would that work here? I also just realized I have Pamela’s Artisan flour in the freezer (I forgot about that! ); would that work?
    Thanks again!

      Yes, Jeannette, I think either combination will work fine. You may have to add a little more flour because the ratios are not always 1:1, but I would probably try it as it’s written if possible.
