Gluten-Free Raspberry & Peach Cobbler

This recipe is inspired by the kind of peach cobblers you find in America, where there is often a glut of the stone fruit. In the UK peaches and nectarines are expensive, so frozen peach slices or drained canned peaches work just as well. It’s a great alternative to pastry and is perfect served with gluten-free vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Serves 6-8
Total Time
1 Hour 20 Minutes
500g of frozen peach slices (or drained canned)
400g of frozen raspberries
1½ tbsp of golden caster sugar
50g of flaked almonds
For the cobbler
125g of softened unsalted butter
225g of golden caster sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
250g of gluten-free plain flour
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the frozen fruit in the bottom of a pie dish and combine well. Sprinkle over the caster sugar and set aside.

Step 2

Make the cobbler by beating the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and whisk in. Finally, whisk in the flour and you should end up with a stiff, wet batter.

Step 3

Using a dessertspoon, place the mixture evenly over the fruit, then carefully spread it out using a fork or the back of the spoon. You might not get to the edges but try to ensure equal thickness where possible. Sprinkle over the flaked almonds.

Step 4

Transfer to the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for ten minutes before serving.
