Gluten Free Cobbler


You can make this recipe with any fruit you have on hand–peach, blackberry, or apple are my favorite. What’s yours?

Easy Gluten Free Fruit Cobbler Recipe
• 1 cup All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour
• 1 cup granulated cane sugar
• 1 egg
• 1/4 cup melted butter or non-dairy substitute
• 2 cups+ fresh or frozen berries, other sliced fruits, or rhubarb + berries (enough to cover the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish or 9-inch pie plate)
• 1/4 cup granulated cane sugar (use less if your fruit is already very sweet and ripe)
• 1 Tbs. cinnamon, optional (I like extra cinnamon on peaches; feel free to omit for berry cobbler)

Fruit Ingredients:

Preheat oven to 350° F.
Pour cleaned and prepared fruit into an 8 x 8 baking dish or 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Stir together until mixed in the dish.

Combine the topping ingredients (except the butter) in a bowl and stir with a fork until it forms a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle on top of the fruit and drizzle melted butter over top of the cobbler before baking.

Bake for 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the pan. The fruit should be bubbly and the topping browning slightly.

Serve warm, plain or with vanilla ice cream.

Apple Fritters

Stephenson’s Apple Fritters

This time of the year screams Apple Fritters to me. One of my favorite items from Stephenson’s apple farm here in the Kansas City area was their apple fritters. I looked for them in their cookbook, but the nearest I could find was their fresh peach fritters, so I’ll make the proper alterations in the recipe for apple fritters.

Apple Fritters
1 cup unsifted flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon each ginger, nutmeg and allspice
1 egg
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons each of milk, melted butter, and molasses
1/3 cup diced apples
Powdered sugar

Mix dry ingredients. Stir in rest of ingredients except apples and powdered sugar, just until smooth. Fold in apples. Drop from a teaspoon* into deep hot fat and fry at 350 degrees about 2 minutes, or until crisp and brown. Drain on paper towels. Roll in powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
Makes 18
*Dip spoon into the hot fat between fritters. This makes the batter slip easily off the spoon.
