Old Time Favourite Peach Cobbler

Old Time Favourite Peach Cobbler, this recipe has a “Modern Twist”.

Not only is this Old Time Favourite Peach Cobbler Gluten Free but it’s also made as a Dessert Cake.
Instead of the Fruit being on the bottom and having the gorgeous spongy texture only on the top, I have divided the Sponge mixture in half. One half is spread over the tin base, then the Fruit is added to the middle, then topped off with the other half of the Sponge mixture.
I scattered sliced Almonds over the top of the Old Time Favourite Peach Cobbler which gives you a nutty delectable crunch.
Stewed Peaches are excellent in this Gluten Free Old Time Favourite Peach Cobbler, on this occasion I used “No Added Sugar Tinned Peaches”.

“Cobbler” means: Dish of Stewed Fruit topped with a Crust.

As a Child I can remember Mum making this Dessert the “Old Fashion way”, as described in the meaning. Especially during the Fruit season, nothing went to waste. We would gather Fruit which had fallen from the Trees onto the ground, this was Stewed, Bottled, made into Jams or given away.
In the later years Freezers came on the market, boy Farmers Wives thought they were in Heaven, truly. The Party Lines were ringing overtime. The same happened when Washing Machines appeared, gone were the scalding Tubs of hot water and those Wooden Washing Boards.
I am not that old you know, I can remember my Mum doing her chores this way.
“Kids of today don’t know they are born”, a recollection of words which I often heard from my Grand-mothers.


Old Time Favourite Peach Cobbler

  • 150g Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Ground Almond Meal
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Gluten Free Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 3-4 tablespoons Sliced Almonds
  • 1 410g Tin of No Added Sugar Peaches, drained


Preheat Oven to 180ºC and line a 20cm round Cake Tin with Baking Paper.

In a large mixing bowl add Butter, soften then add the Honey mixing well to combine.

To this mixture, add the Ground Almond Meal, Gluten Free Flour, Ground Cinnamon and Baking Powder. Mix gently to combine ingredients together.

In a clean bowl place the Eggs and Milk. Whisk together.

Tip into the dry ingredients, mixing well to combine.

Halve the mixture, add one half to the base of your lined Tin, smooth mixture out evenly.

Drain Peaches, place Peaches over the mixture in the base of the Tin.

Cover the Peaches with the remaining mixture. I do this by dotting the mixture over the Peaches then smoothing out with the back of a Fork. Make sure all the Peaches are covered.

Evenly scatter the Sliced Almonds over the top of the mixture.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is lightly golden or the centre springs back when gently pressed in the centre.

If the Gluten Free Peach Cobbler is made earlier, I slice into portions then warm slightly and serve with Greek Yoghurt.
