Dairy Free/Gluten Free Peach Cobbler
Yesterday was the illustrator's birthday!  We always do whatever we want to for our birthday dinners.  The illustrator actually had a different plan for dinner, but since I was nice enough to give him my nasty cold for his birthday, by the end of the day all he wanted was a peach cobbler.  I was a little nervous, since we had not tried to make a cobbler gluten free yet and it was his birthday, so I wanted it to be good!  We had talked about it before and after I made the rice cupcakes, we both agreed that rice flour was the way to go.  It has such a neutral flavor and it bakes up cakey (which is important when we are talking about no gluten).  The cupcakes did not have much sugar in them and they were sweet enough, so I decided to not put as much sugar in this as I do my glutenous cobbler.  I used a little NuNaturals vanilla stevia to boost the sweetness a little and give it a nice vanilla flavor.  This was perfect!  The illustrator even said that he liked it better than the cobblers with regular flour.  Honestly, I did too!
(I wanted to show you the nice combination of cakey and gooey...perfect combination.)

There are so many ways to do cobbler, but this is the good old Southern base of a cup (flour), a cup (milk), a cup (sugar)...but obviously, I have changed it and dare I say it is actually a healthier version.  Ok, I just said it.  Dessert (or dinner) with no guilt!  Sold!
(In the corner, you can see the juices from the peaches made a pie filling kind of sauce.)

Dairy Free/Gluten Free Peach Cobbler

1 cup white rice flour
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup sugar
15 drops NuNaturals vanilla stevia (or an extra TBSP of sugar + some vanilla)
1 TBSP baking powder
pinch of salt
1 15 oz. can peaches halves with the light juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. for 40-45 minutes

Soak the white rice flour with the almond milk.  (I did 4 ½ hours but I would imagine you could do this as long or as you like).  Next add the sugar, stevia, baking powder and salt.  Pour the batter into an 8x8 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Slice peaches to the size you like.  Add the peaches and the juice to the top of the batter.  Swirl the juices in just a little bit.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.  Serve warm with a scoop of your favorite frozen vanilla treat.
