Fresh local peaches are in season. Perfect for snacking on or making into a delicious dessert.
Peach cobbler is a favourite dessert. A cobbler is a dessert made of fruit and topped with a batter/biscuit/dumpling and then baked in the oven.
Besides fresh peaches you could also use canned peaches or frozen peaches. the recipe I used was one of the featured recipes in the library activity kits I get each month. You can also find the recipe here at Taste of Home.
I substituted gluten free flour for all purpose flour.
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup water
- 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh or frozen peaches
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Mix brown sugar, cornstarch, water in a pan until smooth. Add the sliced peaches, bring to a boil and cook until mixture gets thick. Then add butter and lemon juice.
- 1/3 cup gluten free flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- 4-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
Combine topping ingredients in a bowl and mix well, add melted butter. Continue to stir until mixture is smooth.
Divide peach mixture between 2 individual baking dishes, add a spoonful of the topping and back at 400 F for about 25 minutes until brown on top.
Let cool and serve on its own or with ice cream or dessert topping. Delicious.
You could use other types of fruit. I would cut down on the topping a bit as it was a bit too much or increase the amount of fruit to give it more filling.
I freeze local fruit when it is in season so that I can enjoy it over the winter months in smoothies, with yogurt, or to make overnight oatmeal.

Trick: Here is a little trick to remember how to not get desert and dessert mixed up. Desert only has one s because you only want to be stranded in the desert once, but dessert has 2 s’s because you always want double the dessert!
