My gluten free fruit baking adventures continue with our attempts at a Gluten Free Peach Crisp dessert after our successful gluten free blueberry crisp. The kids loved this sweet summer treat! It’s super easy whip up in about 10 minutes too. Basically, I used the same recipe for our gluten free topping and filling with a few minor changes. Baking with peaches is a great way to use up your overripe messy fruit that you probably wouldn’t end up using.
Tip for making a peach cobbler or crisp gluten free style……. I noticed the peaches produce less juice so this crisp requires a bit more butter and less flour than our blueberry crisp. As you know with gluten free baking everything is trial and error!
As for spotting the right peaches at your local Walmart — go for the really ripe ones if you intend to bake right away. Otherwise, if I’m shopping in advance, I look for hard firm ones that I can sit out on my counter and let them soften for 2-4 days!
Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Recipe
4 Large Peaches – sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon lemon juice (You could use a fresh lemon, but I just use the little plastic Squeezey Lemon that I keep in my Fridge on hand all the time so I have it ready for recipes as needed)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cinnamon – sprinkle on top of your filling once everything is combined together
1/2 cup Gluten Free Flour – My secret ingredient is to use Mama’s All Purpose Almond Blend Flour
1/2 cup Oats (We use the Quaker Instant Oats)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6-8 tablespoons of unsalted butter. Soften Butter before creaming it with sugar.
1/3 cup sugar
Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Make your filling by mixing all your “sliced peaches” ingredients together. Next, make your crumble mixture. Step 1 is to Soften Butter and then cream it with sugar for the “topping” crumble mixture. Add in the rest of the “crumble” ingredients.
Tip: If your crumble mixture looks too dry, add a bit more butter. Use your hands or a fork to try to make it a bit “chunky” or into little balls so you can sprinkle it on top of your peach filling mixture. Top your crumble mixture on top of your peach filling mixture that you’ve placed in a square baking dish. Cook for about 40-50 minutes or until your Peach Dessert is bubbling everywhere and looks super soft and gooey.
