This is a mix of a pie, a cake, and a cobbler. It’s an incredibly easy way to get the flavor of a peach pie without a lot of effort! My grandmother makes this a lot, and everyone loves it. I tweaked it a bit, and changed it for our allergies, but it’s still incredibly easy – how often can you say an allergy-friendly dessert is easy?
This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, fish free, shellfish free, and vegan/vegetarian recipe.
- 1 stick dairy-free margarine (such as Fleishmann’s unsalted)
- 1/2 cup milk substitute (soy milk, rice milk, etc)
- 1 cup gf flour or flour mix
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 large can or 1 quart (4 cups) canned sliced peaches with juice or syrup
Preheat oven to 350 or 375 – this recipe is very flexible with temperature, so bake it at the temperature your dinner requires.
Melt margarine in an 8×8 or 8×11 or similar casserole. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and milk. Pour that mixture into the middle of melted margarine, do not stir.
Pour peaches and juice into the center of all. Do not stir. Bake uncovered for 45 min, and let cool for a bit. It will be a bit jelly-ish, not firm like a cake.
This serves 6, allegedly, but don’t count on leftovers if there arefewer than six people at home!
