Gluten Free Peach & Blackberry Cobbler

Summer is almost here! Time to find ways to eat all of the glorious fruit that is out there. Cobbler is one of my favorite desserts, year round. Here is a recipe that I came up. I chose peaches and blackberries, but you could use almost anything that your heart desires. It is best when served warm with ice cream or whipped cream... or both. But it is also great just on its own...

Gluten-Free Peach & Blackberry Cobbler

4 cups sliced peaches (about 4-5 peaches)
2 cups of blackberries
juice of 1/2 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons Gluten-Free Flour Mix of your choice
1 teaspoon vanilla (I prefer Madagascar)
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
fresh nutmeg, to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon)

Crumb Topping

1 cup Gluten-Free Flour Mix of your choice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter or margarine, melted

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Butter/grease a casserole dish.

In a large bowl, mix together fruit with lemon juice. Add flour, vanilla, zest, cinnamon and nutmeg and fold together until the fruit is well covered. Pour into greased dish.

In a small bowl, make the crumb topping by combining flour, sugar, cinnamon, xanthan gum and salt. Stir well. Drizzle butter into bowl and stir until all dry ingredients are moistened. Create crumbs with the mixture, of similar size. Pour the crumbs evenly over the fruit in the casserole dish.

Bake on center rack for 35 minutes, until the crumbs are browning and the fruit is bubbly. Remove. Let cool on a rack for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
