Almond crusted peach cobbler
One of my favorite summer time dessert is warm peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Hubby and I both love to scoop out warm and gooey cobbler as the ice cream melts over it.Yummm…
A year ago,we made some change in our pantry.I removed all purpose flour.We started using coconut sugar or other un-processed sugar more,small changes here and there.I am not a baker but when i do bake,i struggled even more after this change.
I have tried peach cobbler with whole wheat white and pastry flour.It wad barely edible to me.I didn’t like the texture even after couple of trials.I was not willing to bring AP back to home,so i started looking beyond the regular flour.It was time to experiment with Almond flour.Glad i did.
- Almond flour does not give smooth texture which AP flour gives to the cobbler.However i like the nuttiness of almond and its texture didn’t bother me like whole wheat.
- Why it is called cobbler?I have some idea after watching PW ,As you tear the dough into pieces and layer the top of the peaches,it looks like ‘cobbled’ ,PW says 🙂
- I like my peaches fairly soft,i do not like a bite.So i baked the peaches enough before i add dough.
Peach cobbler should not be eaten just by itself.It should be served warm with heaping spoon of Vanilla ice cream,just my opinion 🙂
I adapted from this recipe.
