How to Make Gluten Free Peach Cobbler
This peach cobbler is so easy to make – the recipe is broken down into two parts: the peaches and the biscuit cobbler topping. Each part takes about 10 minutes, so start to finish is about 20 minutes. The rest is just baking time.
First start the peaches…
Peaches and more peaches. Use a big bowl because you’ll end up with a bounty of beautiful peaches. There’s no need to peel them, just pit them and cut them into ½ inch chunks. Then sweeten them with cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg, a dash of salt and some vanilla extract. A bit of arrowroot starch helps thicken the mixture to give it that signature thick, syrupy texture. Mix it all up and stick them in the oven to start the baking process while mixing up the cobbler biscuit topping.
Now for the biscuit cobbler…
Gluten free cobbler is one of the few gluten free baked goods that you can eat fresh from the oven. This gluten free garlic bread is one too, but we’re in dessert mode here. The combination of hearty oat flour and cornmeal makes this cobbler an easy to mix treat. The batter should stay on a spoon without pouring off. And should be easy to dollop onto the peaches.
What kind of cobbler topping is best for gluten free peach cobbler?
There are so many cobbler topping styles – cake-like, dry and crumbly, pastry-like and biscuit style – but this recipe uses a cornmeal biscuit style that is the best, hands down! It’s the perfect combination of heartiness and melt in your mouth deliciousness that uses cornmeal and oat flour so it’s a substantial biscuit, perfect for topping this gluten free peach cobbler.
Can gluten free peach cobbler be frozen after baking?
If you have any left, and that’s a big if, but if you have any peach cobbler left over, you can easily freeze it for another time! Just cover it tightly with foil and stick it in the freezer. To defrost a frozen gluten free peach cobbler, place it in the oven to warm at 250 F for about 45 minutes to an hour.
