Gluten Free Pear Apple Cobbler - Glass Bowl Method


This was the easiest recipe I think i have ever made up.  A cobbler is a wonderful treat for your family as well as yourself.  Delicious anytime, but best served warm with some ice cream.  yummmy!!

I chose to make this as simple as I could, and I am very thankful for the Anchor Hocking Glass bowl set I got for my birthday recently.


2 ripe pears (peeled, cored, diced)
2 ripe apples (peeled, cored, diced)
1 stick of unsalted butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon xanthan
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup potato starch (not potato flour)
1/3 cup sweet white sorghum flour
1/3 cup sweet rice flour
1/2 cup whole milk

Begin by placing the stick of butter into the largest glass oven ready bowl you have.  Place this in the oven and begin preheating oven to 350 degrees.

You want the butter melted, not cooked, so remove when melted.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, xanthan, baking soda, baking powder, egg, salt, vanilla, and milk.
Pour this batter directly into the melted butter.  Loosely stir together, not really trying to mix the batter and the butter.  Too much mixing can ruin the end product.

Next, peel, core, and dice the apples and the pears into a bowl.

Mix in the sugars and the spices and set aside until needed.

Add the fruit on top of the mixture in the bowl.  Once again take care to just barely stir together.  Chunky and funky is the goal.

Place the bowl in the 350 degree oven and bake for approximately 45 minutes to an hour.  It will almost double in size, and the house will smell divine.

A very delicious and very simple way to make a traditional dessert.
