Gluten Free Peach Cobbler 1 Bowl Dessert Recipe

Yields: 4-6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40-50 minutes

Ingredients

Peach Filling

  • 4-5 cups fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced (frozen can be used, thawed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Cobbler Topping

  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour blend (make sure it has xanthan gum)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup milk (dairy or your preferred alternative)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

1. Preheat Oven

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8×8 inch baking dish or a similar size.

2. Prepare Peaches

  • In a large bowl, combine sliced peaches, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg (if using), and lemon juice. Gently toss until well combined.
  • Pour the peach mixture into the greased baking dish.

3. One-Bowl Cobbler Topping

  • In the same large bowl (no need to wash it!), whisk together the gluten-free flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until a dough forms. Be careful not to overmix.

4. Assemble

  • Drop large spoonfuls of batter evenly over the peaches in the baking dish. You don’t need to spread it, it will spread naturally while baking.

5. Bake

  • Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the peach filling is bubbling around the edges.

6. Serve

  • Let the cobbler cool for at least 15-20 minutes before serving. This allows the filling to thicken slightly.
  • Delicious on its own, or serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Tips

Fresh vs. Frozen Peaches: Both fresh and frozen peaches work well. If using frozen, be sure to thaw and drain them well to avoid excess liquid.

Adjust Sweetness: Taste your peaches and adjust the sugar in the recipe accordingly.

Flour Matters: Use a high-quality gluten-free all-purpose flour with xanthan gum for the best results.

Don’t Overmix: Overmixing the dough will make the topping tough.

Make it Vegan: Use vegan butter and a plant-based milk alternative for a dairy-free version.
