Here’s the deal. I was given a challenge to use Bob’s Red Mill’s new gluten free 1 to 1 baking flour in an old family favorite recipe. I normally mix my flours to achieve certain textures with my gluten free baking, but this flour is a new product by Bob’s Red Mill that is supposed to relieve me of that stress. It definitely did that!
I had a few ideas, but the first one was biscuits and, well, they already have that recipe on the bag for us. So, I talked with my guys and the first thing they said was Peach Cobbler. I couldn’t argue with this. I mean come on! I’m a Southern girl. I LOVE my cobblers! I grew up with a cup a cup a cup cobbler recipes. You know, a cup of flour, a cup of sugar and a cup of fruit with the juices. I have since, made my own version with a little less sugar, but still the concept is the same. I added a little extra milk to my recipe since I was using fresh fruit. Fresh fruit cobblers are a favorite here now during the summer time and well, as you all know from my other posts here, I’m a Georgia peach girl through and through. So, we had a plan.
I put a different spin on my usual peach cobbler this time and decided to roast the peaches. Oh my, the flavor from the fresh roasted peaches added such an amazing depth of flavor to our usual cobbler. I also cut the sugar a bit and added vanilla stevia to the mix. It adds the extra sweetness and the hint of vanilla without the sugar calories.
Now, the cobbler…it was soooo good! The flour blend was perfect! This cobbler has the perfect custardy fruit filled bottom covered in a cakey topping. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes it a perfect summertime treat!
Gluten and Dairy Free Roasted Peach Cobbler
- 2 large Peaches, quartered and sliced about 3 cups
- 1 Tbsp Dairy Free Butter
- 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Flour
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
- Pinch of Salt
- 1-1/4 cups Almond Milk
- 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 20 drops Vanilla Stevia (or 4 tsp more Sugar)
- 1 Tbsp Sugar, for topping
Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
Place the sliced peaches and butter in an 8 x 8 baking dish. Bake the peaches for 30 minutes, stirring once at 15 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix with a wire whisk. Next add the almond milk, apple cider vinegar and stevia to the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Make sure the peaches are evenly distributed in the dish. Spray the sides of the baking dish with cooking spray to prevent the batter from sticking to the dish. Pour the batter over the roasted peaches and bake for 1 hour. Serve warm or cool.
