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, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also 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.
