Peaches are such a summertime delicacy! They of course grow and ripen during the middle to end of summer. My all-time favorite peach dish is of course peach cobbler, but I wanted to make a version for my friends who are gluten intolerant.
I had a few trials and errors deciding if it needed an added leavening agent or not. I ended up using the 1 to 1 mix from Bob’s Red Mill.
It with the addition of baking powder gave it the perfect lift to replicate a regular flour cobbler. This version of a peach cobbler needs the added liquid from canned peaches. While I prefer to use my own home canned, I unfortunately didn’t have any on hand. I did find a beautiful jar of Amish peaches at a local stand. They made for a beautiful cobbler. If you don’t have access to canned peaches, be sure to cook your fresh peaches in a sweetened water (simple syrup).
That will not only soften the peaches, but also give you the syrup to use for the gooey cobbler base. Also be sure to peel the peaches first. They have a fussy outside that will make this dish a little less enjoyable. Try it out with your favorite whipped topping or ice cream for your next family dessert. Enjoy!
