Peach Cobbler

peachcobbler Peach Cobbler

I have gone a little nuts for peach cobbler. I have made several and this is one of my favorite versions. My husband, resident taste-tester, was thoroughly interrogated and he swears he loves it. I think he is beginning to regret this role as blog taste-tester. My perfectionist tendencies frequently result in fewer blog postings, so I will post this version tonight and be satisfied. Temporarily. Luckily, peach season is almost over.

This peach cobbler recipe has less sugar than most because I made the filling with agave nectar. If agave is not yet your thing, use brown sugar instead. This recipe does have its flaws – it makes a little too much batter! You can also simplify by using a gluten free flour mix- 2 3/4 cups.  Overall I would say it is a pretty solid recipe because it tastes good- after all, that is the point! This recipe must be made when peaches are in season. Only ripe, flavorful peaches will do.

Topping:

1/2 cup sorghum

1/4 cup almond meal

3/4 cup cornstarch

1 cup rice flour

1/4 cup millet (or more rice flour)

1 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon orange zest

1 teaspoon vanilla

6 Tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup fresh orange juice

1 1/4 cup (maybe as much as 1 1/2 cups) milk

Filling:

4-6 large peaches, sliced (I left skin on) about 4 cups

1/2 cup agave syrup

I Tablespoon sweet rice flour

1/4 cup fresh orange juice

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the liquid ingredients except for the milk. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Slowly stir in the milk until the batter reaches the right consistency- about 1 1/2 cups. In another small bowl, mix together the agave syrup, orange juice, and sweet rice flour. Combine this mixture with the peaches in a 9 x 13 baking pan. Spoon the batter over the peach mixture. You may have extra batter. Bake for about 45 minutes on 350 degrees.

Several servings- I would cut the recipe in half for a smaller family. Or eat cobbler for breakfast!

  1. Natalie,
    This looks wonderful! I’ll save the recipe for Colorado peach season, which is a few weeks away. We have the best peaches grown in the Western part of the state. I can’t wait. Thanks for the preview! :-)

  2. Thanks for posting this Natalie! I’m really excited to try it! Three of my four children and my husband have Celiac and we have recently cut out almost all sugar since at least 2 of my children are hypersensitive to it. I plan on trying this recipe with granulated erythritol in place of the sugar, leaving the rest of the recipe as written. My family LOVES peach cobbler! I can’t wait!

  3. If I wanted to simplify by using a gluten free baking mix, would that replace ALL the dry ingredients?

  4. Shyla- You might want to add a little more baking powder, but that is just a guess. Check to see how much the mix contains. Good luck!

  5. Looks very yummy! Yay for agave recipes. It really does work wonderfully, especially when you don’t need sugar for structure.

  6. Sounds like a great way to use peaches–I love them cooked like that. Must give this one a try!

  7. Pretty picture! I never thought of using orange juice in a cobbler. Sounds yummy!

  8. I do the same thing too when someone tries something new I’ve made.

  9. I used the topping over mixed berries and it turned out wonderfully. My gluten-eating friends all had second helpings. I really liked the touch of orange in the cobbler, and the not-too-sweet biscut flavor and texture. Thanks for another great recipe!

  10. I just made an accidental GF cobbler when my pie crust crumbled. I used the parts I couldn’t salvage and coax into crust spread out over some blueberry syrup and peach butter. Can’t wait to give this actual recipe a shot though!

  11. Hi:

    Thanks so much for posting these wonderful recipes. I am new to the Gluten Free life, but would like for my whole family to join in with me. I can not wait to try some of your amazing recipes.

    Blessings

  12. Hi Natalie!

    I JUST discovered your site, and I’m already addicted. I love peach cobbler too and I can’t wait to try out this recipe!

    Thanks so much!

  13. The peach cobbler looks amazing! My daughter is having her graduation open house this weekend and I plan on making it for our gluten free treat. I am going to switch it up a little and use my all purpose gluten free flour with millet. It is my favorite to bake with and adds such a creamy texture and a little more protein to anything I make.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  14. This brought tears to my eyes. Thank for writing this. Thank you for putting into words all the frustration I have felt for the last 6 weeks (just finding out that daughter has Celiac). Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am grateful there are people like you to give me hope, recipes and company.
