In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe comes to us from Valerie Wells.
1 stick butter
1 cup GF flour, any kind (I use a mixture of rice flour and corn starch)
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
½ teaspoon gluten-free baking soda
1 cup kefir or buttermilk (or soy milk that is soured with 1 tablespoon lemon juice)
1 large can peach halves or about 2 OR 3 cups frozen, thawed berries to which about ¼ cup sugar is added
Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, etc. (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F. Melt butter in 8 x 8 glass pan. Mix all other ingredients except fruit. Pour batter onto melted butter. Some people stir it around to mix the butter with the batter. Others dont. Its a matter of personal taste. If you do stir the butter in, you get a tender, rich cake like texture. If you dont stir it in, you get a chewy, crusty butter flavored edge. Drop the fruit on top. Lightly sprinkle peach cobbler with spices of your choice. Bake 45 minutes.
