Southern Peach Cobbler with Gluten Free Option

Posted by on Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Southern Peach CobblerHarvest is in full swing here in the south, including one of my summer time favorites – PEACHES! Lester Farms is selling peaches now  and I can think of no easier dessert to whip up with them than a good old fashioned southern peach cobbler.  You can have one ready to pop into the oven in the time it takes for it to preheat.
  • 3/4 cup plain flour (or Bob’s Gluten Free Baking Mix)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups fresh peeled and sliced peaches (or apples or blackberries)
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk in a medium sized bowl and set aside.  In a 2 quart baking dish, add the melted butter.  Peel and slice the peaches, then toss in a separate bowl with remaining sugar.  Add a dash of nutmeg or cinnamon if desired.  Pour flour/milk mixture into the baking dish with melted butter.  Then pour the sliced, sweetened peaches evenly over batter/butter mixture. DO NOT STIR!  Bake in 350 degree preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until cobbler is golden brown and cooked thoroughly.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.  This recipe can also be cooked in an iron skillet, making a beautiful southern presentation.  For a gluten free recipe, substitute Bob’s Gluten Free Baking Mix for the flour.
