My apologies for the long delay in between posts.  June was a crazy month around here.  I’ve been cooking and photographing when my health allows, so I will work toward getting up some new posts in the coming weeks.

This blueberry cobbler is scrumptious, especially fresh out of the oven.  The cobbler starts to get a bit gooey after refrigeration overnight and keeps getting gooier as the days progress, so I wouldn’t recommend making a bigger batch than you will eat in a day or two.  This is for a 9×13 pan, but the recipe easily cuts in half for an 8×8 pan.

GFDF Blueberry Cobbler

8 cups fresh organic blueberries
1/2 cup organic evaporated cane juice
1/2 cup organic sucanat
1/2 cup organic cornstarch
1 t organic vanilla extract
3/4 c organic tapioca starch
3/4 c sorghum flour
3/4 c almond meal*
3/4 c organic white rice flour
1.5 t xanthan gum
2 tablespoons organic evaporated cane juice (sugar)
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
2/3 cup organic palm shortening
1 cup organic rice milk
1 t organic vanilla extract
2 organic eggs, beaten
2 to 4 tablespoons organic evaporated cane juice (sugar) **
1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly oil a 9×13 inch glass baking dish with organic canola oil.

Mix together blueberries, 1/2 cup evaporated cane juice, 1/2 cup sucanat, 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1 t vanilla extract.  Put mixture into the baking dish.  Place in the preheating oven while preparing cobbler topping.

In a large bowl, combine flours, starch, xanthan gum, 2 tablespoons evaporated cane juice, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add milk, vanilla and eggs; stir just until flour is moistened.

Remove the hot blueberries from the oven.  Carefully spread the cobbler topping over the hot blueberries. The pan will be hot by this point!  Sprinkle top with remaining 2T-4T sugar mixed with cinnamon.

Bake in preheated oven for 19-23 minutes, or until top is golden brown.

The recipe can easily be cut in half to make an 8×8″ pan.

*Almonds are not true nuts, but they carry a cross-contamination risk.  To make this item nut free, substitute millet flour.

** I prefer less sugar topping; my kids prefer more.  If you like your desserts on the extra sweet side, go for the 4 tablespoons of sugar.  If not, add 2 tablespoons.
