Pesche Calzolaio Fresca con Anice (fresh Peach Cobbler with Anise): Gluten-free


A good peach is hard to find! The perfect peach should be fragrant, golden, juicy, soft but not pithy. This simple cobbler is ideal for a weekend breakfast.Peach Cobbler

2 organic, ripe peaches, sliced in 1/4 inch pieces
1 cup rice flour
1 teaspoon sugar/evaporated cane juice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon Xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon anise
1/2 cup water
2 5 inch quiche dishes or oven-proof small bowls, lightly oiled (I use Earth Balance shortening) 

Preheat over to 375oF.

Mix together rice flour, baking powder, sugar, xanthan gum and anise. Add water and beat with a fork or hand mixer on low until well-blended. The batter should look like a stiff frosting. Spoon half the batter into one dish, pressing with the back of a spoon, evenly on the bottom and sides of the dish. Repeat with the rest of the batter in the second dish. Put both on a baking sheet and place on the middle rack in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Let stand a few minutes to cool down a little and serve warm. Serves 2.
