With the New Year Approaching, many people are trying to get on board with a healthy lifestyle. For many of our families and kiddos, this may mean going gluten free. We are going to try to help out by posting favorite recipes here. If you have one you like, forward it to us and we will add it to our archives. Just another way to start the year 2012 on a positive note.
Gluten Free Apple Cobbler
6 apples (I really like Pink Ladies, but use a good cooking apple) 1 cup gluten free flour ¼ tsp. xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend has it already) ½ cup brown sugar ½ cup granulated sugar 1 ½ tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. ground cinnamon (I used 2 tsp.-we like cinnamon) 1 egg 6 Tbsp butter, melted or non-dairy margarine Equipment: 2 quart baking dish, good knife or apple peeler corer, bowl, fork and an appetite Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the 2 quart baking dish and set aside. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan gum (if using), both sugars, baking powder and cinnamon. Peel, core and slice the apples using a goof knife or the apple peeler corer. Place the apples in the bottom of the 2 quart dish. Beat the egg in a small bowl or cup. Pour over the flour mix and stir with a fork until combined and little bits form. Spread this over the top of the apples. Pour the melted butter over the top of that.
Pop in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until a fork can be easily pushed through the apples.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. This makes a yummy hot breakfast (my choice for leftovers).
