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.


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


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


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!
