I was recently invited to dinner with some friends. This is always a bit anxiety causing as I need to make sure there are things I can eat, and at the same time I don’t want to be obnoxious about it. Its a delicate balance. It usually works out wonderfully, but dessert is always tricky. A lot of times friends will snag some gluten-free cookies so I at least have something, which is awesome. What is even better is when they ask me to bring dessert!
When I being dessert I not only get to safely eat it, but I also get a chance to share some gluten-free goodies with friends. Thats what I did this past weekend! They asked me to bring dessert and I knew immediately I wanted to make some peach cobbler!
I had not made cobbler since going gluten-free so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use some Bella Gluten Free flour. This flour is a great cup for cup substitute for regular all purpose flour with great flavor and texture. I also decided to get a bit creative and try to add some of the So Delicious yogurt to create a creamier cobbler.
2-3 cups peaches
1/4 cup sugar
1 container SoDelicious vanilla yogurt
1 cup GF flour
1tsp xantham gum
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tbs vanilla
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Peach cobbler is super easy to make! Start by either peeling and slicing your peaches or just slicing them. I prefer to leave the skin on, just because I think it is more colorful!
Next, your sugar and yogurt to a bowl and mix together, when it is mixed throughout go ahead and fold the peaches in the mix. You don’t want to squish all the peaches. This is really important if your peaches are really really ripe. You don’t want to get rock hard peaches for this, but you also don’t want them so ripe that the slices hardly hold shape.
Once you have the peaches ready go ahead and scoop it out onto the bottom of your baking dish, I used ramekins because I think they are cute, but you could totally use a square 9X9 baking pan as well.
To mix up the cobbler, start with your butter and sugar. Once this is mixed together then you can add the rest of your ingredients. Make sure everything is mixed completely, then scoop it out and plop it on top of the peaches. The great thing about cobblers is that you don’t have to worry to much about where the batter goes. It all melts down and cooks into all the nooks and crannies it is supposed to!
Once you are ready go ahead and bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them after the 15 minutes mark, you want the cobbler to be cooked throughout and a nice light brown.
So there you have it! My So Delicious yogurt experiment worked out great and the Bella Gluten-Free flour didn’t let me down! This was a big hit and all the gluten-eaters at dinner absolutely loved it! They even asked to keep the left-overs! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
